Northwestern Medical Center earned a 10th consecutive Gold Standard Level Award from the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports and the Vermont Department of Health on March 25, 2015. NMC was one of 92 businesses that applied for this year’s awards and once again earned the top level Gold Level Award.
“I’m so pleased to be a part of a team that has a decade of exceptional worksite wellness programming under its belt,” said Suzanne Tremblay, Supervisor of Lifestyle Medicine at NMC.
“Worksites that promote healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco use cessation, and breastfeeding, contribute to the overall health and wellness of all Vermonters, and they are one of the key reasons we are routinely rated the nation’s healthiest state,” said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD.
The awards are designed to highlight and recognize what worksites from around the state are doing to promote the health and wellness of their employees. The organizations that receive the awards vary in size, industry and location but they all have a common thread, a commitment to workplace wellness.
Northwestern Medical Center is a vibrant, not-for-profit, community hospital, located in St. Albans, Vermont. For more information about NMC, please visit www.NorthwesternMedicalCenter.org.
