One of the key factors to running a successful business is maximizing employee productivity while minimizing overall costs. When you provide health care benefits, you are offering a great incentive to your employees and investing in the success of your company. The Covenant Corporate Wellness Program can help promote the health of your business, whether it is large or small.
Many of these services may be covered under your group health insurance wellness benefit, thus resulting in minimal, if any, out-of-pocket expenses for your employees. For any organization to be successful, it is important that your employees are healthy and able to work to the best of their ability. Through the Covenant Corporate Wellness Program, we can help empower your employees to lead healthier lives. If you would like further information about the program or would like to schedule a screening date, please do not hesitate to call 806-725-6543.

One size does not fit all.

Through basic medical history and family history risks, our work site health professionals can screen for an employee's current state of wellness and track wellness progression by monitoring family history, fitness status, nutrition status, current symptoms, stress levels, lifestyle habits (smoking, alcohol or drug use) and implementation of safety precautions.

Body measurements are translated into accurate percentiles of muscle mass, body fat and water mass. The results provide a picture of the individual's metabolic rate and exercise prescription

The first step in preventing a heart attack or stroke is to identify your risk. Plac2 is a blood test that detects the presence of the more dangerous soft plaque hiding in the lining of your arteries. It is the only FDA-approved blood test that can predict your risk of heart attack or stroke.
Fasting insulin levels, along with the hemoglobin A1C and fasting blood clucose can detect diabetes years before it is diagnoses. This information can provide an individual the opportunity to address health concerns and turn the course away from diabetes and towards better health.
- Sudden death is the first symptom of 60 percent of all heart attack victims.
- 80 percent of individuals with diabetes die of heart attack or stroke.
- If you have elevated blood pressure and elevated Plac2, your risk of having a heart attack or stroke is seven times greater.

For your business to be successful, it is essential that your employees are healthy and able to work at full capacity. Part of staying healthy is practicing preventive medicine or treating a health problem before it becomes too complicated. Thousands of Americans continue to ignore their health because they do not have access to health care, because they do not practice healthy lifestyles, or because they do not take time to visit their physician for regular check-ups. The Covenant Corporate Wellness Program can help empower your employees to lead healthier lives.
Our Corporate Wellness staff will compile a personalized profile for each participant. This report is provided to each individual along with education to help them get started a healthier way of living.
By comparing wellness and clinical factors throughout the company, we can better understand the specific needs of your employees and track long-term wellness progression company-wide.
The Covenant Corporate Wellness Staff is committed to the confidentiality of individual results. Wellness testing participants may rest assured that their personal health information will not be released to anyone other than themselves. The only information given to the company is an executive summary of the general group health status and risk factors.
