System recognized for its commitment to employee health

By Chris Fish


BREVARD -- Wuesthoff Health systems was named a Gold-Level, Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association last month for its commitment to helping employees eat better and move more.

"Physical activity and employee wellness are important priorities at Wuesthoff Health System," said Time Cerullo, CEO of Wuesthoff Health System, in a press release. "We are honored and excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association as a Gold-Level, Fit-Friendly Worksite."

Wuesthoff Health System joins Brevard Public Schools, which was named a gold-level employer in the past.

According to the American Heart Association website, gold-level employers offer employees physical activity options in the workplace. Also, these employers increase healthy options at the worksite, promote wellness culture in the workplace, demonstrate measurable outcomes of workplace wellness and implement criteria outlined by the Associate in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture.

"We're committed to providing the best workplace environment possible and are now working toward reaching the Platinum-Level, Fit-Friendly Worksite recognition," Mr. Cerullo said in the release. "This will benefit our employees' health and produce even more positive results for our worksite overall."

According to the Association's website, platinum-level employers fulfill all of the gold-level criteria and demonstrate at least one behavior change, specified in the application form or achieve at least one cost-savings outcome or have achieved a positive return on investment.

Employers that join the program qualify for recognition via the American Heart Association's website and related events throughout the year.
