Children’s Colorado was named the winner of the 2018 Governor’s Award for Worksite Wellness. Each year, the Governor’s Council for Active and Healthy Lifestyles partners with HealthLinks™, a signature program of the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health, to identify and honor organizations that are notable in their efforts to build a culture of health and safety in the workplace.
On May 2, representatives from Children's Colorado attended the 11th annual Colorado Culture of Health and Wellbeing Conference to accept the Worksite Wellness Award in recognition of the hospital’s outstanding team member health and safety initiatives.
Awards criteria included:
Heidi Baskfield, vice president of population health and advocacy, who accepted the award from Lt. Governor Donna Lynn, reflected on its significance. "It is an incredible honor for Children’s Colorado to receive state-level recognition for our comprehensive approach to wellness. We didn’t just surpass other hospitals for this award, but other businesses and government agencies as well. We have not only one of the best wellness teams in the state, but in the country."
Children’s Colorado’s multidisciplinary approach sets it apart. The hospital recognizes the many dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, social and occupational, and makes sure to have resources and programming to support all of these areas. In doing so, the hope is to foster a positive, engaged team that has the tools they need to stay well while caring for others.
