Wellstar Health System, one of Georgia’s largest and most integrated health systems, announces it has been named a “Healthiest Employer” by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in the “Extra Large Company” category, recognizing innovative organizations that have created robust and healthy workplace programs.
“Wellstar is dedicated to putting people first in everything we do, and that starts with our team members,” says David A. Jones, EVP and chief human resources officer at Wellstar Health System. “Prioritizing a culture of wellness is essential as we strive to deliver world-class healthcare to every person, every time. Wellstar is proud to be recognized by Atlanta Business Chronicle for our work in looking out for our team members' health and well-being. When we take care of ourselves, we can better care for our communities.”
The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Healthiest Employer award is based on the analysis of over 60 scored questions with more than 600 data points for scoring and benchmarking. Wellstar was included in this prestigious list as an organization that takes proactive measures to “better the lives of employees through innovative programs and leadership commitment.” In 2022, wellness rooms were established across the system for team members to have a place to reflect, refuel and recharge during their shifts. Team members also have access to state-of-the-art fitness centers and onsite mental health resources.
