Healthcare Franchise Star Wellness Provides Wellness Screenings To Move Employees Out of the ER and Onto the Road of Wellness

FranchiseWorks.com | Healthcare Franchise Star Wellness Provides Wellness Screenings To Move Employees Out of the ER and Onto the Road of Wellness.

DALLAS (April 2014) As our nation’s healthcare habits shift from costly trips to the emergency room to preventive care, Star Wellness® is at the forefront of educating both employees and employers on the importance of early detection.

With onsite wellness clinics providing a convenient way for a company to offer health screenings to employees, Star Wellness can help avert potentially devastating healthcare crises.

Since 2006, Star Wellness has conducted over 104,000 blood draws and tests, over 21,000 vascular ultrasounds and over 106,000 inoculations (78,000 of those for the flu). While the result can vary from industry to industry, here are the most common health issues Star Wellness has found facing today’s workforce:

  • Obesity / high BMI
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Vitamin D deficiency

Left untreated, these issues can lead to more serious problems ranging from diabetes and thyroid disease to heart disease and various cancers.

Star Wellness CEO Johnette van Eeden says that although a clean bill of health is always the most hoped-for outcome, the ounce of prevention in catching potential issues early is worth every penny that employers spend to keep their work teams healthy.  The key, according to van Eeden, is for the employer to take the initiative.

“Even though preventive screenings are covered at 100% under the Affordable Care Act, only 10 to 15 percent of employees (especially men) visit their doctor for an annual physical,” van Eeden said. “Fortunately, companies now recognize that early detection through screening is not only an effective way to protect the health of employees, but also one of the best ways for a company to control rising healthcare costs.”

ABOUT STAR WELLNESS
Founded in 2003, Star Wellness is changing the way healthcare is delivered by providing screenings and vaccinations directly to employee in the workplace, often saving lives in the process.

By focusing on early detection and prevention through affordable onsite testing, Star Wellness clients are able to encourage and improve employee participation in personal health management programs that lead to lifestyle change, tangibly reduce costs, and help protect corporate health benefits.
