With collaboration from PMG’s 250+ physicians, the goal of the program is to give people the information they need to start making healthier choices. Wellness Program employers show they are invested in their employees' efforts to make healthy lifestyle choices at home and on the job.

The PMG Workplace Wellness program is celebrating its fifth year with a push to bring health services and education to even more workplaces. In 2015, services were offered to 20,000 locally employed individuals. The majority of participating employers schedule 6 to 12 months of events, including on-site health screenings with physician consultations, flu clinics and wellness presentations.

SCREENINGS

Early Detection & Prevention

While many employees are aware they
have health issues, addressing them
with lifestyle changes can be challenging
and intimidating. Our program makes it
easy for your employees to get current
information on their health status and
provides the necessary follow-up and
education so that they can begin to make
changes to improve their well-being and
long-term health.


On-site Screenings & Services

  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol
  • Glucose
  • Body mass index
  • Vaccination administration
    (seasonal flu, tetanus, etc.)

A physician is available to review the test
results with each employee. This extra
service gives employees the opportunity to
ask questions and to determine if they need
to take action or speak with their doctor.

Continuity of Care

Screening results may be delivered to
the employee’s health care provider
electronically or via the employee to be
included in his or her medical records.

Off-site Screenings

While many screenings can be facilitated
at the workplace, some diagnostic
screenings must take place in a clinical
environment. On your behalf we can
work with screening providers to establish
dedicated appointment blocks and
extended hours access for your employees.
