Our Commitment to Your Health and Wellness

Feb 10 • 2016

Taking care of your health is extremely important. By regularly visiting your doctor, addressing any medical issues in your family history, and creating routines that maximize your wellness, you’re setting yourself up for success. For me, dieting and seeing my physician on a regular basis are just a couple of the steps I take to stay healthy.

At Baptist, we know that health care is wellness and we are proud to offer a variety of wellness programs that focus on nutrition, fitness, and prevention to help people in our communities take control of their health.

One of the biggest aspects of wellness is fitness. Staying fit can lower your risk for a wide range of diseases and improve your overall quality of life. Because of this, we offer classes taught by Baptist employees and guest speakers, support groups for people of all ages, seminars led by experts on different wellness topics, and even on-site fitness centers with diverse classes like aerobics, yoga, aquatics, and more. We want to encourage members of our communities to take charge of their health, so many of these wellness resources are available for free.

Knowing how you can prevent health issues is another key aspect of taking control of your overall health, but can be a challenge. And the vast amount of information available can often times be more overwhelming than it is helpful. At Baptist, we focus on helping people understand how they can avoid different diseases by making simple lifestyle changes. If you have a family history of diabetes, cancer, stroke, or another condition, we have screenings, educational programs, and support groups that can help. As with our fitness options, many of these health and wellness events are free of charge.

We pride ourselves on helping patients get better when they need to, but we also recognize that staying well is part of overall health, too. Have you taken advantage of any of our wellness programs yet? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Share your feedback in the comments section below or send me a tweet at @Jason_M_Little.
