What is Living Well?
Living Well is your custom employee wellness program here at Haywood Regional Medical Center. This program is designed to help improve the health of employees so that we can better serve our patients and community.
What is the Living Well Passport?
The Living Well passport is a booklet of events for 2017. For each event that you attend or complete, have a staff member from employee wellness stamp it for credit.
What do I get for attending events?
Prizes will be awarded throughout the year for various events. Also, at the end of the year, the individuals with the most events attended will have the chance to win a treadmill, smart TV, Garmin™ watches, PTO, iPads, Amazon® gift cards and much more!
