Business Health & Wellness


Business Health & Wellness

Business Health & Wellness was established at Franciscan Healthcare in 1997. A team of healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists, work together to develop programs to meet the unique needs of employers. Each year employers lose billions of dollars because of on-the-job accidents and injuries. Employees spend most of their day at work – for this reason, employers encourage a developed environment that promotes healthy behaviors and safety for their employees. Companies benefit from fewer absences, lower turnover rate, and higher job satisfaction. We offer a variety of programs and services to help employers care for the health and wellness of their employees.
