Vision: Making the healthy choice the easy choice.
Mission: Enhance the health, wellness, and well-being of all WCHD employees.
WCHD Wellness is the Washington County Health Department’s employee wellness initiative. WCHD Wellness is created and run by the WCHD Wellness Committee, which is made up of employees and is open for any employee to join.
To learn more and see the currently planned activities for 2021, see the most recent Operating Plan on the WCHD intranet.
The general objectives of WCHD Wellness are:
- To make healthy choices convenient and easy and reward them and make unhealthy choices inconvenient and do not reward them (but don’t punish them).
- To offer programs that will enhance the health, wellness, and well-being of all employees and to offer programs that address the needs and interests of the employees and the organization.
The Washington County Health Department received a Gold Wellness at Work Award in 2020, a Silver award in 2019, and a Bronze award in 2018!
