Workforce Wellness

JC Blair’s Workforce Wellness is a program delivered right to your workplace that helps you take care of your worksite family.

Regular screenings play an important role in the early detection of preventable diseases. We can tailor a screening to meet your specific needs.On-site screenings typically include:

  • Blood pressure check
  • Resting pulse assessment
  • Glucose (blood sugar) level
  • Full Lipid Profile (fasting) - triglycerides, HDL, LDL, total cholesterol
  • Waist circumference
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • One-on-one education by healthcare provider

Our clinically trained screening professionals use the latest guidelines and testing protocols to not only screen each employee but also offer recommendations along with each individual’s screening results. We provide you with a detailed aggregate report summarizing the results of the group, as a whole, compared with state and national indicators.  Also included is a description of what each indicator means and how it can be improved.

Based on these screening results, we can help you develop high quality, customized programs that focus on your workforce needs.

Medical Care Management

Many employees lack relationships with primary care physicians and then choose higher cost providers when they need healthcare. Without a medical home with a primary care provider, chronic conditions and diseases often go undiagnosed and later become much larger expenses to manage.
