Saint Elizabeth named Fit-Friendly Worksite by AHA

June 24 2013

Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center has been named a Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association (AHA).

Saint Elizabeth is one of 19 companies in Lincoln to be recognized by AHA as a Fit-Friendly Worksite, which is defined as going above and beyond when it comes to employees' health. The Gold Level award is earned by employers who fulfill criteria such as offering employees physical activity support, increasing healthy eating options at work and promoting a wellness culture.

In the last year, Saint Elizabeth added nutrition labels to the food offered in the cafeteria, challenged employees to exercise and eat healthy through a wellness incentive program and launched a new health coach program available to employees and their family members at no cost.
