Hospital employee wellness program

The Stanford Health Improvement Program (HIP) has partnered with Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children's Health to create HealthySteps for Wellness, a program designed to help hospital employees adopt and maintain healthy lifestyle behaviors.

The HealthySteps for Wellness program encourages employees to make healthy lifestyle choices by offering free health screenings, a free online health assessment, fitness classes and healthy living classes through the Health Improvement Program at Stanford University. Eligible employees can earn incentives for completing their health screening, on-line health assessment and for participating in healthy activities each year.

Employees can now “step up” and take control of their personal health and support the culture of wellness at both hospitals. Throughout both organizations, HealthySteps Champions are making a difference through their volunteer efforts to share program information, lead by example, host classes at their worksite, choose healthy snack options, lead stretch breaks and encourage their co-workers.
