FMH Receives Gold Wellness at Work Award


Seventeen Frederick employers were recognized at this year’s Wellness at Work Awards event held on July 14, 2016. Wellness at Work is a new awards program of the State of Maryland for employers committed to improving employee health and well-being.

All applicants for the Wellness at Work Awards completed the CDC Worksite Health Scorecard. The Scorecard helps employers assess whether they have implemented evidence-based strategies in their workplace to help prevent heart disease, stroke, and related conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity.

There are four award levels: On the Path, Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Higher award levels required employers to meet additional criteria, such as having a worksite wellness team, completion of additional assessments, completion of a minimum number of worksite health improvement goals, and demonstration that plan outcomes are tracked and evaluated.

The Wellness at Work Awards recognition event for Frederick employers is a partnership of the Frederick Regional Health System, the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce Worksite Wellness Committee, and Healthiest Maryland Businesses.

FMH was recognized with a GOLD level award for large employers (over 750 employees). Congratulations to all who helped us achieve this recognition!
