Decatur County Memorial Hospital is ranked #2 in the 2014 Healthiest Employees 100 list.

Decatur County Memorial Hospital recently announced that it is has been inducted into the 2014 Healthiest Workplaces in America. The hospital is ranked 2nd in the national list.

The award is sponsored by Healthiest Employers, a technology and data research company that is focused on corporate wellness.

The hospital has integrated several initiatives to promote employee wellness and practices. The hospital now offers annual staff and spouse health screenings, discounted insurance and fitness programs, a wellness garden and weight loss challenges.

“Not only am I proud from a personal standpoint because I feel that I contributed to that success,” said Lynzee McDowell, marketing and communications director at DCMH.

“You know we are such as a small town hospital so to have any national recognition, it truly means something- I think it shows everyone our efforts we do internally and externally are really being noticed,” McDowell added.

The hospital also won Indiana’s Healthiest Employer award for the 100-499 employee sized company in August.

DCMH is leading the charge for a healthier community. If other area businesses are interested in implementing screenings or programs, contact DCMH WorkWell Occupational Health at (812) 662-6450 to learn more.
