LIFEWISE Health Enhancement Coordinators

We’ve been in the business of providing health and wellness solutions to companies for more than 30 years, and we understand the critical importance of a healthy workforce and happy and productive employees. With Saint Luke’s LIFEWISE™ Health Enhancement Coordinator (HEC) services, we partner with employers to improve employee health and well-being.

HECs are wellness professionals certified in health coaching and dedicated to working with your organization. As a central part of LIFEWISE, they understand wellness at both the strategic level and the employee level. HECs work on-site with your organization to help identify and implement the most effective solutions for addressing specific population needs.

The Health Enhancement Coordinator works in partnership with you as the employer, your human resources and benefits representatives, and your broker and carrier.

While we work constantly to meet employers’ changing needs, our objectives remain consistent:

  • To find the best possible solutions for managing health risks through proven interventions and strategies
  • To improve employee health as a means to reduce or eliminate unnecessary utilization of expensive health care services
  • To demonstrate results tailored to the client’s goals by providing the most cost-effective and highest quality services and programs
