Corporate Wellness

Baptist Health and the YMCA of Florida’s First Coast have teamed up to provide local employers with a new approach to employee health. It’s called PATH, Personalized Approach to Health.

Research has shown an effective wellness program can have significant impact on a variety of health risk factors including cholesterol, blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

Through a YMCA Corporate Wellness Partnership, companies can provide their employees with a comprehensive wellness program, health education and unprecedented savings on memberships, all of which can improve employee morale, absenteeism and productivity.

Employee Benefits

The Corporate Wellness Partnership provides an opportunity for employees to receive a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Access to state-of-the-art YMCA locations throughout Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties and an Aquatics Center in Baker County.
  • Choose from one branch or access to all
  • FastForward Fitness – our complimentary 90-day training and support program proven to make participants 4 to 6 times more likely to reach their goals
  • Complimentary on-site childcare while using YMCA facility with a household membership
  • Member exclusive rates on childcare programs, sports leagues, camps and instructional classes
  • Unlimited group exercise classes
  • Black Hog Farm Membership – $144 annual value. Order fresh-from-the-farm meats, veggies and more for pickup at the Y.
  • ActivTrax & Preva – two powerful technology tools that take the guesswork out of working out and help you succeed along your own personal fitness path

Employer Benefits

Improve Absenteeism
Employee wellness programs reduce the stress, depression, injury or illness that employees are experiencing in the workplace, causing them to spend fewer days away from work due to illness.

Decrease Health Care Costs
Employers have a vested interest in health-related issues and reducing unnecessary medical costs.

Improve Productivity
Improved employee productivity plays a big role in the success of a company.

Reduce Injuries
Healthy employees are at a lower risk for injury than those who are unhealthy with multiple risk factors

Improve Employee Morale and Retention
Companies that sponsor an employee wellness program send a clear message to their employees that executive leadership values their overall well-being.
