Through its Fit-Friendly program, the American Heart Association recognizes employers who go above and beyond with their wellness efforts to create a culture of physical activity and health in the workplace. Recently, they recognized ARC Physical Therapy+ as a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite.
As a Gold level award recipient, ARC Physical Therapy+ demonstrated a strong commitment to providing a healthy workplace for its employees by offering healthy eating options and physical activity support as well an overall culture of wellness.
Research shows that poor diet, lack of exercise and other major risk factorsfor heart disease and stroke are responsible for at least 25 percent of companies’ healthcare costs. By creating a healthy environment, employers can lower their healthcare costs and protect their most important resources, their employees. In fact, for every $1 invested in worksite wellness, companies can receive up to $3 in return, according to the American Heart Association.
At ARC Physical Therapy+, wellness is more than just a series of physical activities and educational posters. It’s a corporate philosophy that is deeply engrained in the mission statement, culture and overall business model.
ARC Physical Therapy+ continually strives to redefine ‘Excellence’ in healthcare by being a catalyst of change in the marketplace and delivering a continuum of care to its employees and clients. From assessing the risk of injury on the job to prescribing exercises that help employees strengthen their muscles and return to work or educating patients about potential health risks, wellness is what we do. ARC Physical Therapy+ is honored to be recognized as a Fit-Friendly Worksite.
