Health & Wellness
The goal of the St. Peter's Hospital Wellness Department is to reduce health risks and promote overall wellness among employee groups and individuals in the Helena area and its surrounding communities.
St. Peter's Wellness emphasizes prevention, self–responsibility, self–empowerment, and awareness. Staff is dedicated to assisting each individual in achieving physical well–being and refers clients to their primary care providers to treat any realized medical problems. Privacy and confidentiality are strictly adhered to by all Wellness staff.
Wellness offers programs 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.
Patients are screened for indications of cardiac disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, arthritis, and other serious diseases. Support for lifestyle changes are offered individually or through supportive groups. Wellness programs include consultation with a nurse educator, cooking classes, lectures on a variety of topics, and individual informational support.
A wellness program is an investment in your organization's most important asset—your employees. It's a win–win for both you and your employees. 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 the program say they feel better and have more energy. They're learning that fitness can even be fun—and not that difficult when taken step by step. In some cases, health screenings have saved lives and certainly health care dollars by early detection of serious illnesses.
