Working Well

History

Working Well aims to be the comprehensive worksite wellness strategy to establish cultures of healthy living and improved population health in South Carolina. The initiative is a partnership between Prevention Partners and the South Carolina Hospital Association. It is generously supported by The Duke Endowment and Eat Smart Move More SC.

Working Well is making a sustainable impact using hospitals as community leaders. As community-oriented, mission-driven organizations, hospitals understand the role that health plays in the community and to the individual. As employers, they understand the high cost of preventable illness and disease among the almost 80,000 South Carolinians who work in hospitals. The initiative also includes 16 state cabinet agencies, numerous public universities, local municipalities and a variety of private businesses that are working together to make the healthy choice the easy choice in workplaces across South Carolina.
