CONCORD TWP., Ohio, November 9 - For the second year in a row, Lake Health was named a Start! Gold Fit-Friendly Company from the American Heart Association (AHA) for championing the health of employees by creating a culture of wellness in the workplace.
The “Gold-level” recognition is for companies that fulfill criteria such as offering employees physical activity support; increasing healthy food in cafeterias and vending machines; promoting a wellness culture; and implementing a designated number of activities in physical fitness, nutrition and cultural areas.
Concord Twp., OH, October 30, 2009 - Lake Health’s four Urgent Care Centers, located in Chardon, Madison, Mentor, and Willowick, recently received the Certified Urgent Care designation from the Urgent Care Association of America. With this certification, Lake Health and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings. When a medical condition can not be handled by a patient’s regular doctor during regular office hours – such as unexpected cuts, burns, sprains or fractures that do not require a visit to the emergency department -- Lake Health’s urgent care centers are staffed by a physician and equipped with x-ray and laboratory services to care for these non-life-threatening emergencies.
