Corporate Wellness Program
At Fairfield Medical Center, we believe that a proactive approach in healthcare is essential. Healthcare costs continue to escalate as our society leads unhealthy lifestyles. As the obesity rate continues to climb, the rate of chronic conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases are rising as well. By incorporating lifestyle changes through eating habits and exercise, the likelihood of developing chronic diseases greatly decreases.
The Corporate Wellness Program at Fairfield Medical Center will strategically partner with your business to develop an in-depth plan for your employees. Our program provides comprehensive health risk assessments, and staff education Fairfield Medical Center’s goal is to help your business reduce the overall number of healthcare claims made by employees, saving your corporation money while improving the physical and mental health of your staff.

Who Are We?
A proactive approach in health care is essential. Fairfield Medical Center is teaming up with local employers to provide the Fairfield Medical Center Corporate Wellness Program. By teaching employees the value of living a healthier lifestyle, both the employees and the company benefit!
What We Do?
The Corporate Wellness Program provides a variety of offerings to encourage your employees to lead a healthier lifestyle, as well as convenient on-site health screenings. Our educational opportunities are part of the Corporate Wellness package and can either be offered at your business or at Fairfield Medical Center. We prepare topics that are pertinent to your employees’ needs as identified by the health risk assessments.
Fairfield Medical Center’s Corporate Wellness Program also provides on-site health fairs offering information about stroke, cancer, nutrition, exercise, heart disease and much more for community employers.
How are Health Screenings Performed?
Our wellness team will visit your facility to perform a comprehensive health screening to employees. This includes obtaining a blood sample to check cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar levels for each participant.
Body measurements, including height, weight, body mass index, and blood pressure will also be obtained. Each employee completes a health questionnaire during the visit that asks about lifestyle, personal history, and current health practices.
An aggregate report is generated from the information collected, and a follow-up visit is scheduled approximately two to four weeks after the initial visit to review the report in a group session.
While individual assessment results will not be disclosed to the group, one of our wellness specialists will provide a general information session to the group based off of collective group results. Gender-specific risk factors associated with lab and body measurement results will be thoroughly discussed while keeping individual results private.
A health risk assessment prior to an annual physical allows your employees to discuss their risk factors with their physicians.
Is There A Fee?
We will provide a proposal of services to your company’s administrative staff. Many corporate insurance agencies give premium discounts to companies that offer wellness programs to their employees.
