AlloSource Recognized for Outstanding Corporate Wellness Program, Including its On-Site Health Clinic | July 25, 2014
AlloSource, one of the nation’s largest providers of skin, bone and soft tissue allografts for use in surgical procedures, and the world’s largest processor of cellular bone allografts, received a pair of wellness awards from Cigna and the Denver Business Journal.
AlloSource was selected for the second year in a row as Denver’s Healthiest Employer, but this time in the large company category, as judged by the 2014 Denver Business Journal Healthiest Employers awards program. In addition, the company received the Cigna Well-Being Award for Outstanding Culture of Well-Being.
The Denver Business Journal competition recognizes companies of all sizes and industries that commit to making wellness a reality for their employees by creating and implementing wellness programs, as well as educating and promoting wellness in the workplace.
The Cigna Well-Being Award for Outstanding Culture of Well-Being recognizes companies committed to creating a culture of health through corporate wellness programs. The Well-Being Award acknowledges employers that positively impact the health and wellness of their employees.
“Supporting and fostering the health and wellness of our own employees has always been a top priority because our people are the key to our success,” said Thomas Cycyota, AlloSource President and CEO. “Our commitment to wellness is even more critical today amidst rising insurance costs. Each year we make our wellness offerings more comprehensive, so we are honored to be recognized for our programming and results.”
The AlloSource wellness program provides opportunities that engage employees and their families to optimize their health. It uses an outcome-based system along with insurance premium discounts and positive reinforcement through multiple prizes. While the program is a constant stream of activities, the largest wellness activity of 2013 was the opening of the AlloCares onsite health clinic.
AlloSource employees and their dependents have access to the AlloCares Health Clinic as part of the company’s medical plan and wellness program. With just over 450 employees, it is noteworthy that AlloSource offers an on-site wellness facility, which is usually only done by much larger organizations. The clinic is open five days a week, including Saturdays, for both well and sick visits, and provides on-site lab and pharmacy services.
AlloSource is already seeing a reduction in health claims of 7% and prescription costs of 30% while the Health Clinic has been open for just under a year.
The Denver Business Journal and presenting sponsors Cigna, Humana and United Healthcare awarded the top five healthiest companies in three size categories during a luncheon July 23. Cigna presented its Outstanding Culture of Well-Being honors during its forum on July 17.
