Wellness Program

At Kootenai Health, we care about the health of our employees as much as we do about the health of our patients. To help promote employee wellness and offset unwanted health care costs, Kootenai was proactive and created incentivized programs to get employees moving.

MyHealth Program

Kootenai’s self-developed employee wellness program is called MyHealth. Several MyHealth initiatives are in place to help employees achieve their personal goals, including:

  • Free health coaches
  • Weight Watchers at the Workplace
  • LiveWell program
  • Discounted memberships to PEAK Fitness
  • Reimbursements to employees who compete PEAK’s “Biggest Loser” challenge
  • Summer walking series and step challenges
  • Free yoga, bootcamp and Zumba classes
  • Reimbursements for smoking cessation products and services
  • Financial counseling
  • Ongoing free financial seminars for employees and their spouses
  • Partnerships and discounts with local area agencies such as the Coeur d'Alene Marathon.

We believe patients will most likely receive better care as a result of having a happier, more engaged employee caring for them.

 

Well Workplace Designation

In 2009 and 2016, Kootenai received the Wellness Councils of America's Gold National Well Workplace designation for quality and excellence in work site health promotion. The Gold designation recognizes Kootenai's development of comprehensive programs for employee wellness.
