Worksite Wellness

From screenings to incentive programs, Northwestern Medicine Worksite Wellness has a variety of offerings that can help increase employee productivity and well-being. Programs are customizable for your needs and can be provided on-site at your business while maintaining employee confidentiality.

Life-saving screenings

Provided at a Northwestern Medicine location near you, preventive screenings help with early detection for a range of conditions, from cardiovascular disease to stroke. These valuable screenings include EKGs, carotid artery ultrasounds and echocardiograms to detect blood clots, aneurysms and plaque that can lead to heart attack or stroke.

General health screenings

We offer on-site testing to check glucose and cholesterol levels (including HDL, LDL and triglycerides). We also check blood pressure and body mass index (BMI). Results are discussed with participants immediately, and direction for follow-up is provided if risks are detected.

Lunch-and-learns and workshops

Northwestern Medicine specialists or clinicians can come to your business to present on numerous topics, including:

  • Nutrition
  • Heart health
  • Cancer prevention
  • Smoking cessation
  • Fitness

Incentive programs and wellness challenges

Multi-week programs are available for your employees on a variety of themes, such as stress relief, weight loss and fitness. Some programs offer healthy competition with co-workers or other companies, and some are individual challenges. All programs and challenges include education, manuals and prizes.
