Walter Lindstrom, Chief Operating Officer, describes Eastern Radiologists’ program this way. “Our corporate wellness program began three years ago with encouraging and rewarding employees who completed an annual physical. We then moved forward with our initiative by encouraging cessation of smoking by implementing a campus-wide “smoke-free” policy while providing support for those employees who sought to stop smoking. We provided informational meetings and educational tools to help employees educate themselves about making healthier lifestyle choices. Most recently, Eastern Radiologists implemented a “Health Coaching” program for all employees. We have enlisted the help of an outside company specializing in providing this type of service. They provide on-site support, coaching and education to our employees relative to their own individual health assessments. The main focus and goal of this program is to promote healthier living through education and lifestyle changes utilizing one on one coaching to raise awareness among employees as it relates to the management of increased risk factors and chronic disease.

Overall, we are very happy with our initiatives thus far and are equally happy with the level of employee involvement. We have embraced the concept of change for the better as it relates to wellness at Eastern Radiologists.”
