LMH Wellness Program

INTRODUCTION TO WELLNESS:

What is Wellness?  Wellness has been viewed as freedom from disease; therefore, if you were not sick, you were considered healthy. This perspective is changing. While everyone agrees that the absence of illness is one part of being healthy, it doesn't indicate whether you are in a state of well-being. Wellness is closely associated with your lifestyle. Each person has a responsibility to provide for such health essentials as good nutrition, proper weight control, exercise, and controlling of risk factors such as smoking, alcohol and drug abuse. All of these things play a role in wellness.

Wellness research shows that Americans who take care of themselves and manage their lifestyles are healthier, more productive, have fewer absences from work, and make fewer demands for medical services.  An article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicated that, in one study, the "wellness" approach resulted in a 17 percent decline in total medical visits and a 35 percent decline in medical visits for minor illness in people who were in a wellness program for one year. 

LAUGHLIN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL’S WELLNESS PROGRAM:

Laughlin Memorial Hospital has been committed to improving the wellness of the community since 1939 and it continues to lead by example.

The Wellness program was created to help employees, patients, and the community take steps to empower themselves to health and wellness.  The program will help people change their unhealthy behaviors, such as poor diet, inactivity, smoking, and excess weight,   by coordinating services and activities to provide guidance and education to those who are seeking to improve their well-being.

It has been proven that corporate wellness programs can improve morale and productivity, as well as reduce absenteeism and rising health costs.  LMH is committed to improving the health status of its employees by offering a program to assist them in meeting their wellness goals.

Our current Wellness Program activity features the "Biggest Loser Contest". Click HERE to see our recent results.
