Kindred and OSU Select Limeade to Drive Wellness Engagement
Limeade, the enterprise wellness company, today announced that it was selected by Kindred Healthcare and The Ohio State University to drive engagement in well-being initiatives for employees, faculty, and staff. These nationally recognized institutions join a growing list of leading organizations using Limeade, including Jamba Juice, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, and REI. Limeade’s positive, social approach is redefining wellness engagement with proven results. For example, Swedish Medical Center recently reported that 94 percent of benefits-eligible employees achieved their initial wellness program goals—including completion of a well-being assessment and a preventive care examination—within the first five months of program launch. “We know that engagement is at the heart of any successful wellness program, and are excited about our partnership with Limeade,” says Kelly Hamilton, CFO of The Ohio State University Health Plan. Kindred Healthcare, a top-125 private employer in the United States, has been on Fortune’s “Most Admired Health Care Companies” for four years in a row. Kindred recently launched their wellness program to 41,000 participants. The Ohio State University is among the nation’s largest and leading public research universities. The Ohio State University will soon offer their Limeade-powered program to 39,000 participants, as well as external customers of The Ohio State University Health Plan. The wellness-engagement programs created by Limeade include health and well-being assessments (including the Limeade well-being assessment), personalized goal setting and tracking, social challenges, integration with mobile apps and fitness devices, routing to prevention and other clinical resources, and tailored incentives that reward and motivate employees for their actions. “We are proud to be selected by these nationally-recognized institutions to help their faculty, staff and employees improve their health and well-being. Limeade is honored to deliver hyper-tailored and results-focused experiences to these market leaders,” said Henry Albrecht, Limeade CEO.
