Interactive Health honor recognizes employee wellness, promotes good health

Rosecrance is proud to announce its recent recognition as one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health, a national leader known for its personalized wellness solutions.

This is the fifth year Rosecrance has been recognized; for 2016, it is one of 156 companies across the country to receive the designation for helping employees make significant and sometimes life-saving changes to improve their health.
With the help of strategic and flexible wellness initiatives, the Healthiest Companies in America recipients have accomplished tremendous success, achieving participation rates in excess of 70 percent and a low-risk health score for their total population, based on rigorous and clinically sound health evaluations.

In 2016, Rosecrance saw a 96 percent participation rate for employees and spouses, and 94 percent of the wellness participants were deemed eligible for reduced health insurance premiums. Rosecrance employs nearly 900 people at more than 40 locations in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

“Healthy employees are critical to our mission of providing help, hope, and recovery for our clients seeking treatment for substance use and mental health disorders,” Rosecrance Health Network President/CEO Philip Eaton said. “Our Goodwill and Wellness Committee works hard to engage employees and promote good health, which helps us to be the best resource for the communities that we serve.”

Participants in Interactive Health’s wellness program receive a thorough health evaluation to identify risk and learn about their health status. Individualized health improvement plans include connections to physicians and educational tools such as webinars and health coaching.

“This is the 10th year we’re honoring the Healthiest Companies in America, and it continues to inspire us how successful the winning companies are in building and sustaining employee engagement and inspiring positive health outcomes,” Interactive Health President and CEO Cathy Kenworthy said. “It is possible to improve health through the right workplace initiatives, and it is smart business.”

Rosecrance was one of three companies recognized in Rockford; the others are the Rockford Park District and Rockford Public Schools. For more information on the Healthiest Companies in America, visit
