Jackson employees take wellness testsWritten by Admin
MedWest-Harris and MedWest-Swain laboratory employees recently partnered for the first time with Jackson County Department of Public Health workers to conduct wellness tests for county employees.
As part of the county’s open enrollment period for benefits, all Jackson County employees participating in the county’s voluntary wellness plan were recently screened at the health department with the assistance of MedWest-Harris and MedWest-Swain lab workers.
“This is a good partnership utilizing local resources for providing lab tests that we collect,” said Jackson County Manager Chuck Wooten.
Jackson County has about 375 employees, and about 95 percent of the employees voluntarily participated in the county’s wellness program.
