Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Life can present unexpected challenges like work-related stress, an illness of a family member or a change in finances that require an objective perspective from trained professionals.

Lucas County Health Center recognizes the importance of providing a confidential resource to help our employees deal with life’s challenges. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a benefit designed for you and your eligible family members.

 


Community Benefit Reporting

An effective community benefit program builds on the foundational beliefs and consists of several interrelated and essential components. Defining community benefit and developing standard approaches to reporting are essential to program credibility. On this page, you will find definitions and guidelines for determining “what counts” and how to accurately report your community benefits.

Our online reporting form does require a password. If you need this password, please contact Jena Wiley in Marketing.

If you have any questions or need assistance with reporting, please contact Jena Wiley, Marketing Manager, at (641) 774-3219 or via email at jwiley@lchcia.com.

Wellness Program

Lucas County Health Center’s vision for the wellness program is to foster a culture of well-being. To carry out that vision, we have enhanced our wellness program to improve the quality of life of all employees by promoting health and well-being.

Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is absolutely crucial to live a higher quality of life. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.

The Health Solutions link, below, allows you to view your biometric information as well as options to receive the 2017 medical wellness incentive (a savings of $1079) by tracking your wellness points and also allowing you to use online action plans and more to help you achieve your person health and wellness goals.
