Self Regional Healthcare Achieves Excellence Recognition

Self Regional Healthcare was recognized by the South Carolina Hospital Association’s (SCHA) Working Well initiative and Prevention Partners for achieving the Excellence Recognition. The Excellence Recognition is awarded for reaching the highest standards in workplace health and prevention. Self Regional achieved this recognition by earning straight A’s in four modules of WorkHealthy America, a Prevention Partners initiative addressing tobacco use, physical activity, nutrition, and the overall culture around health and wellness. The Excellence Recognition honors Self Regional’s commitment to employee health as demonstrated by its policies, programs and benefits to support employee health, optimize employee productivity, and integrate wellness into daily operations.

“Self Regional sets a high bar in establishing and sustaining a workplace where employees can make healthy choices,” said Lindsey Bickers Bock, Strategic Coaching Senior Manager at Prevention Partners. “I applaud this great effort and the commitment of their leadership to create a culture of wellness.”

“Our goal for Self Regional team members is to encourage health and wellbeing, as well as provide a work environment that promotes those two ideals. We are always pleased to receive any recognition that shows we have been able to meet that goal. Healthy lifestyles for our patients and our team members are of utmost importance to us, so we are quite proud of this award,” said Jim Pfeiffer, President and CEO of Self Regional Healthcare.

Prevention Partners works with the SCHA’s Working Well initiative to engage corporate leaders and staff throughout SC to enhance and sustain employee wellness efforts. These efforts are generously funded through the Duke Endowment and the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control.
