SEARHC Wins American Heart Association Award

SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) has been awarded the designation of being a “Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite” by the American Heart Association for recognizing the importance of a healthy workplace for its employees, and creating a culture of wellness.

“To be selected, we had to show that SEARHC has strong systems in place such as the healthy meals served at the Litehouse Café at Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in Sitka, the employee fitness centers in both Sitka and Juneau, an employee wellness team and incentives for fitness such as free ski passes for employees to use at Eaglecrest Ski Area in Juneau. These are all great reasons to work at SEARHC,” said Martha Pearson, SEARHC Health Promotion Division Director.

The American Heart Association recognizes employers who go above and beyond when it comes to their employees’ health, and SEARHC is extremely proud to have received that recognition from such a prestigious and respected organization.
