The goal of the St. Peter's Health Wellness Services is to help identify health risks and promote overall wellness among employee groups and individuals in the Helena area and its surrounding communities.
Wellness offers services and program management designed to empower individuals who want to take an active role in their own health care to make positive, healthy, and long–lasting lifestyle changes.
Importance of Screenings
Wellness screenings are an important part of the St. Peter's Health Wellness program. Screenings helps businesses save money on healthcare and assists individuals to better understand their health risks based on several blood tests included in the screenings.
Patients are screened primarily for risk factors associated with:
- heart health
- high blood pressure
- Vitamin D
- an array of conditions associated with abnormal lab values
A wellness screening is an investment in your organization's most important asset—your employees. It's a win–win for both you and your staff. Many organizations that have implemented wellness programs report reduced health care costs, increased productivity due to reductions in sick time and improved employee morale and company loyalty.
Employees who participate in wellness screenings say they are more aware of their health risks and the importance of seeking appropriate health consultation with their provider. In some cases, health screenings have saved lives and certainly health care dollars by early detection of serious illnesses.
Please note: St. Peter's Health Wellness does not perform blood testing on anyone under the age of 18.
Wellness Screenings for Businesses
Healthy employees are happy employees. According to the Center for Prevention and Health Services, an estimated 25–30% of companies’ medical costs per year are being spent on employees with excessive health risks.
Companies that have programs to help employees stop smoking and promote health screens have 28% decrease in sick leave, a 26% reduction in health care costs, and a 30% reduction in workers compensation and disability costs.
The short term investment in employee health can help your company save thousands in healthcare costs.
