Our wellness initiatives at the individual level focus on making improvement on each person's perception of their physical, social, and psychological well-being.
WELLNESS CENTER / SYNERGY a Medical Fitness Center
SJH partnered with the community to build and operate the region's first Wellness Center and integrated medical fitness services. The center focuses attention on primary, secondary and tertiary measures to help prevent life threatening disease through early detection, risk factor management, and lifestyle and behavior modification.
The Wellness Center includes Synergy, a medical fitness center which is membership-based and open to the public. Community members of all ages, fitness levels, and mobility work towards lifestyle change and fitness goals. The Wellness Center is also home for outpatient rehabilitation services, diabetes management and women's imaging services.
A key initiative for the Wellness and Health Improvement Division is Worksite Health Promotion for the St Joseph Health system employees.

For SJH Employees at select hospital locations.
Currently being piloted at a few of our hospital sites, the Choose Well program was developed to help support employees in living a healthy life full of wellness potential. Benefits of the program include tips for keeping a well balanced lifestyle, in addition to screenings, assessments and coaching. St. Joseph Health is looking forward to expanding this program to additional hospital locations.

VIRGIN HEALTH MILES
SJH System Office
We ensure that our own employees are able to take advantage of our wellness initiatives, allowing them to be more productive and satisfied with their work. One way we carry this out is with the option of participating in the Virgin Health Miles program. On any given day, employees at the SJH System Office can be seen taking the stairs instead of the elevator and making other healthier choices while wearing their Virgin Health Miles pedometer.
