Central Florida Health, which includes Leesburg Regional Medical Center and The Villages Regional Hospital, was recently recognized by the American Heart Association. The two hospitals received the highest-level AHA Workplace Health Gold Achievement Award for the second consecutive year, according to a news release. “It is an honor to receive this award for the second year in a row,” says Juli Romero-Gomez, RN, coordinator of the Healthy You, Healthy Us Wellness Program at CFH.
“It is a true testament to all of the hard work and health changes being made individually and system-wide.”
More than 1,000 companies completed the assessment this year and out of those, only 75 percent received gold, silver, or bronze recognition. Benchmarking reports are sent to companies to allow them to identify areas for improvement to advance performance and recognition, helping their workforce move toward ideal heart health.
