Worksite wellness program meets needs of employers

Amanda Shreve, licensed practical nurse and wellness coordinator, takes a call from a corporate client at her office on the Garrett Regional Medical Center campus.

OAKLAND — Garrett Regional Medical Center recently launched HealthWorks, a newly revived worksite wellness program tailored to meet the needs of employers throughout the region.

Amanda Shreve, a licensed practical nurse, is the program’s wellness coordinator.

“I am really excited to grow our HealthWorks program and work with our region’s employers to meet their health and wellness needs,” said Shreve. “With the newly revived program, we’re working with our current clients to improve their services, while also adding new businesses to the HealthWorks roster. We work with a diversity of employers across multiple sectors. Our clients include local government agencies, health care, finance, manufacturing and small businesses.”

HealthWorks works with employers regardless of need, whether it is for a one-time pre-employment screening or implementing a full-scale worksite health and wellness program that encompasses annual blood work, physicals, on-site drug screenings and health education. The components of HealthWorks also include Department of Transportation physicals, flu vaccinations, ergonomic assessments and wellness and biometric screenings.

Annual biometric and wellness blood screenings can help individuals identify potential health problems so they can take steps to reduce their risk of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease. Annual wellness screenings benefit employers by helping to control costs and reduce days of missed work and sick time.

Interested employers may contact Shreve at 301-533-4371 or ashreve@gcmh.com.
