American Heart Association Recognizes Guthrie for Workplace Health Achievement

The results of the American Heart Association 2019 Workplace Health Achievement Index have been announced and Guthrie is proud to have once again achieved Bronze Level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.  

Studies show that worksites with a culture of health with comprehensive, evidence-based policies and programs, and senior leadership support are more likely to have engaged employees and a healthier, more productive workforce. Guthrie has initiated several policies and practices that have helped its employees reach this status.  

Some of those initiatives include:   

  •  Tobacco free campuses and smoking cessation programs.  
  •  Monthly wellness events aimed at improving physical, mental, social and financial well-being.  
  •  Healthy food options in the cafeteria and in the Guthrie Community Garden. 
  •  Events led by Senior Leadership that promote health and wellness.  

“The personal health and well-being of our staff has never been more important,” said Guthrie’s President and CEO, Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, “Our employees are putting in long hours to help care for patients impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and Guthrie is committed to continuing to provide the support they need to be able to care for our communities.”
