From prevention to early detection, for-profit healthcare operator Prospect Medical Connecticut designed its wellness program to help employees maintain and improve their health.

Prospect, which owns Manchester Memorial, Rockville General and Waterbury hospitals, said its “Healthy Prospects” program uses on-site staff to provide biometric screenings and health assessments for employees. Staff also give health coaching and education, fitness classes and other wellness support.

Program coordinators quickly shifted to virtual models during the COVID-19 pandemic offering new health education webinars, weekly newsletters and online stretch breaks and guided meditation sessions.

The service is free to participants, who can earn a $50 per month lower medical premium rate on their medical benefits annually.

“As deliverers of healthcare services, it’s imperative that our employees not lose sight of the need to care for themselves through increased awareness of health risk factors and be provided access to wellness resources designed to support their journey toward a healthier lifestyle,” said Sandie Sekely, national director of health and welfare benefits.
