CentraState Medical Center is proud to announce that it has received the Edington CBIZ Great Beginnings Award by the CBIZ Employee Services Organization, a division of CBIZ, Inc., and Edington Associates LLC. This awards program identifies companies that are using innovative wellbeing practices and programs to cultivate a high-performing culture.

The award nominees were considered based on five core pillars of success, including senior leadership, operational leadership, self-leadership, recognition and rewards and quality assurance. The panel of judges was comprised of 20 experts in the wellbeing and human resources field and they were asked to recognize the organizations that were most engaged in innovative and creative wellbeing initiatives.

CentraState was awarded the Edington CBIZ Great Beginnings Award for self-leadership after careful evaluation of the development and implementation of its Plant-Powered nutrition and lifestyle program designed to improve the well-being of its employees.

CentraState’s Plant-Powered Program, which promotes eating a diet rich in whole, plant foods, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, was offered solely to CentraState employees and their spouses last summer and provided the participants with the education and tools necessary to successfully make lifestyle changes to improve their overall health over the course of 12 weeks. At the end of the program, all participants experienced improved health and a greater sense of well-being, including a decrease in waist circumference, weight loss, decrease in total cholesterol, and improved blood sugar values.

“The Great Beginnings Award for self-leadership recognizes our efforts to better manage chronic disease and focus on disease prevention for all of our employees, says Tracey Saliski, Wellness Program Coordinator, CentraState Healthcare System.” “We are grateful to be lauded for our efforts to not only take care of our employees, but to be an innovator for the future of employee wellness.”
