Employee health: UHS is good as 'Gold'

Gold StandardUHS has earned "CEO Cancer Gold Standard" re-accreditation for maintaining a strong commitment to the health of its employees and satisfying the latest, most comprehensive requirements of the Gold Standard.

The CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of health-minded corporate chief executive officers, developed and
continues to administer the Gold Standard, an employee wellness framework based on taking concrete actions in five key areas to address cancer in the workplace.

To earn and maintain CEO Cancer Gold Standard accreditation, an employer meets specific requirements in corporate culture and health benefits: establish policies and programs to reduce cancer risk by prohibiting tobacco use and supporting tobacco cessation efforts; promote physical activity, healthy nutrition
and weight management; provide health insurance options that include detecting cancer at its earliest stages, access to quality care and participation in clinical trials; promote employee awareness of these initiatives; and support the needs
of cancer survivors in the workplace.
