Lake Granbury Medical Center (LGMC) recently hosted a Wellness Kick Off celebration. This event encouraged LGMC employees to take steps to transform their health through exercise, education, healthy cooking, and engagement with partner programs right here at home.
The highlight of the kickoff came when Chef Johnny Carino performed cooking demonstrations for employees. While in Granbury, Carino also taped a special LGMC cooking segment to be posted on the hospital website at LakeGranburyMedicalCenter.com.
During the event, employees visited stations covering the main components of the wellness program.
In addition, the entire staff was encouraged to join three different competitions:
Healthy Recipe Contest.
Biggest Loser Contest.
T-Shirt and Slogan Contest.
The grand prize winner of these contests will be given the opportunity to enjoy a private dinner prepared by Chef Johnny Carino.
To help augment its employee wellness initiative, LGMC established a partnership with LIVEO, a new start-up health and wellness company.
LGMC was selected by LIVEO to be one of their beta test sites for an innovative mobile app that offers real-time tracking of health metrics, weight loss, and work-out routines. In addition, the LIVEO app offers an extensive library of videos; including exercise routines, healthy lifestyle tips, celebrity chef Carino, cooking easy, cost-effective and healthy meals.
