Iredell Health System was recognized as one of the 35 healthiest employers in the Charlotte area by the Charlotte Business Journal in its 10th annual Healthiest Employers of Greater Charlotte Awards.

Assigned a score based on surveys about its health and wellness program, Iredell Health System ranked seventh among employers with between 500-1,499 employees.

Iredell Health System is continually working to promote a healthy lifestyle among its employees, said Cindy Smale, Iredell Health Systems human resources director. As a healthcare organization, it is our job to inspire wellness in the community and be a guiding light for our citizens health. As we model those behaviors in everything we do, it is undeniably important for us to inspire wellness within our team members, and that is exactly what we do.

After the Charlotte Business Journal received nominations for the program from organizations across a variety of industries, nominees were evaluated based on company culture, leadership, strategic planning, communication, and programming, among other topics.

As other health systems have been forced to lay off or eliminate staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, Iredell Health System has not only kept its entire workforce but has implemented innovative ways to keep them healthy and engaged.

Nominated before the onset of the pandemic, Iredell Health Systems award reflects the preparatory importance of wellness programs focused on physical, financial, mental, emotional, and social health of employees. Iredells offices have remained open; its staff has remained employed; and its patients have continued to receive the care they need.
