BRMH Recognized as a GOLD Recipient 2nd Year in a Row

12/05/2019

Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) has been recognized as a GOLD recipient of the 2019 Workplace Health Achievement award through the American Heart Association (AHA). AHA has defined best practices for employers to use to build a healthy workplace for their employees. Companies are measured on how well they have implemented these practices. BRMH is being recognized at the GOLD level for achieving a score of at least 175 points out of a possible 217 points.

BRMH Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Director and Wellness Team Chairman Nicole Schweitzer said, “We’re very proud to receive this recognition. Our goal as a wellness team is to continue to improve the health of BRMH’s workforce from one year to the next.” The team has developed workplace wellness challenges. One program is the B-WELLthy Mile Club, a walking or running program that is a year-long challenge to reach 100, 250 or 500 miles. Schweitzer stated, “We have expanded our programs beyond BRMH and developed Health Works in partnership with the Krohn Clinic. Available services include fit-for-duty exams and physicals, fitness and ergonomic programs, and much more to assist area employers in organizing wellness programs for their employees.”
