Last month, Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center was recognized as a Gold Level Recipient of the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites Recognition program. The Fit-Friendly Worksites program is a catalyst for positive change. Worksites throughout the nation can be part of the initiative by making the health and wellness of their employees a priority.
Sierra Vista was recognized as a Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association’s My Heart. My Life. initiative for:
· Offering employees physical activity support.
· Providing/increasing healthy eating options at the worksite.
· Promoting a wellness culture.
· Implementing at least nine criteria as outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture.
“We are extremely honored and excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association’s My Heart. My Life. initiative as a Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite,” said Candace Markwith, Sierra Vista CEO. “Physical activity and employee wellness are very important priorities here at Sierra Vista and we encourage all of our employees to take care of themselves, their families and their community.”
