Leesburg Regional Medical Center and The Villages Regional Hospital have achieved the Gold Award, an exceptional level of recognition, the American Heart Association Workplace Health Achievement Index recently announced in a news release.

Both hospitals are taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace. Based on science-based practices for evaluation, the Workplace Health Achievement Index measures overall quality and comprehensiveness of workplace health programs.

More than 800 companies completed the index assessment this year with 67 percent receiving gold, silver, or bronze recognition. “It’s an honor to receive this award. It is a true testament to all of the hard work and health changes being made individually and system-wide,” says Juli Romero-Gomez, RN, coordinator of the Healthy You, Healthy Us wellness program at Central Florida Health, operator of the two hospitals.

“We look forward to a continued successful relationship with the American Heart Association and to implementing changes that support a culture of great health and well-being for our team members and community.”hospitals with heart
