Select one or more of the following opportunities to assess and improve your employees' health! We'll design a program that fits your specific goals.
Our health risk assessment helps employees evaluate their lifestyles to make informed decisions about their health. Through confidential online questionnaires and health screenings, we'll creates a personalized report for each employee that helps guide healthier lifestyle choices.
What's more, your organization will receive a group report that paints a company-wide picture of health risk factors. Then, we follow up with "lunch and learn' presentations that promote ways your company and employees can reduce those risks.
Conducted on site or in our traveling Health Mobile, employee health screenings provide critical early detection information to keep medical problems from advancing. Chesapeake Regional customizes employee health screenings to meet the specific needs of your company. It's information that makes your employees healthier and better informed, and allows your company to maximize cost savings and health benefits. You choose the screenings that are important to you
At Chesapeake Regional Healthcare, we want to ensure our valued customers have ample time to prepare for the next flu season.
It is predicted to be another active season. Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious complications, hospitalization or even death. Your employee may lose, on average, one week of work depending on the severity of their illness. The secondary infections that may occur due to influenza include pneumonia, dehydration, and sinus and ear infections. Individuals with chronic medical conditions such as heart failure, asthma and diabetes have increased health risks if they contract the flu virus. While flu activity usually peaks between December and February, the flu itself is unpredictable. Although there are many different flu viruses, the yearly flu vaccine protects against the three viruses that research suggests will be most common that flu season.
The best way to protect against
the flu is to get a flu vaccine every season.
Flu shots = 10 minutes
Time off work for illness = up to 10 days
Employers can be proactive and maintain productivity by having a flu vaccine clinic available for employees at the work site. A minimal loss of work time when getting their vaccine will prevent greater time losses during the season.
We will be offering on-site flu vaccine clinics to businesses beginning mid October-December 2015. To ensure your company’s needs are addressed it is important that you contact Gini Hoffman at 312-5261 before August 31, 2015.
