Category: Health & Hospitals

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

October 2, 2017 - Chatham County was recently awarded the ACCG - Group Health Benefits Program Health Promotion Wellbeing Grant by ACCG, Georgia's County Association.

Chatham County is one of 44 members to receive the Health Promotion Wellbeing Grant based on its commitment to employee health and demonstrated collaboration with other community groups and organizations engaged in health promotion.

"A successful wellness program is designed to encourage healthy lifestyles, which helps to control health care costs and contribute to a happier, more productive workforce", said Douglas County Commissioner and President of the ACCG - GHBP Board of Directors, Michael Mulcare. "Wellness programs greatly benefit employees, their families and the employer - everyone benefits."

The  Health  Promotion  &  Wellbeing  Grants  are  awarded  statewide  to  our  members  that_  are undertaking health and wellness initiatives to transform their living and working communities into healthier environments. The grants are to provide assistance in promoting worksite programs designed to enhance the health and wellness of county employees and familymembers.

As part of the grant process, the member designates a Health Promotion Champion to develop a workplace health promotion action plan and to attend the Health Promotion Champion training class offered by Local Government Risk Management Services (LGRMS). In addition,  employees will be offered a confidential health assessment program using a Health Risk Appraisal, with blood pressure screening and health improvement feedback.

Wellness programs have a reliable track record of improving employee health and quality of life while reducing medical claims and improving workplace morale. ACCG offers wellness services to all members through LGRMS, a not-for-profit agency operated jointly with the Georgia Municipal Association.
