The Wellness Program at WVU Healthcare and WVU Health Sciences recently was awarded the Gold Well Workplace Award by the Wellness Council of America. This outcome-focused initiative recognizes quality and excellence in worksite health promotion. Driven by a pre-defined set of worksite wellness criteria, organizations are recognized as one of America’s healthiest companies through an application process using the Olympic themes of bronze, silver and gold.

“A Well Workplace is an organization fully embracing its responsibility for maximizing the health and well-being of its employees”, said Dave Harshbarger, wellness manager. "In a Well Workplace Award winning organization, it is evident that employee wellness has become part of the overall business strategy."
