For over 20 years, Palmetto Primary Care Physicians (PPCP) has provided excellent quality health care to nearly 300,000 patients, proving to be the Lowcountry’s leader in primary care. PPCP focuses on ways to make health care more accessible and accommodating. Through successful evidence-based programs such as our Patient Centered Medical Homes, Diabetic Education, Smoking Cessation, and Clinical Research, PPCP has facilitated patients living healthier lives.
PPCP’s Corporate Wellness Programs focus on awareness, prevention, and wellness to improve the health of your employees.
If you would like to include Wellness, or Biometric, screenings as part of your employee wellness program, our professional medical staff are available to provide these screenings on-site. Our screenings focus on prevention and interventions that reduce employees’ health risk factors and can result in benefits such as decreased employee absenteeism, reduced health expenses and increased productivity. Using either a venipuncture or finger-stick method, employees will be screened and then provided individualized education by a Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner. Both individual and aggregate reports are included with screenings.
Multiple screening options are available and all events are customized to meet the needs of the employee group. Common testing includes:
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Cholesterol (total, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides)
- Fasting glucose
On-Site Wellness Clinics
On-Site Wellness Clinics are designed so that employers can offer their employees the opportunity to receive quality preventative and acute care at their work place. These services can be a great benefit to both the employer and employee; employees don’t have to use PTO or be absent without pay for medical appointments, and employers are able to see increased productivity and attendance by keeping their employees healthy.
When it comes to receiving appropriate medical care, two major deterrents for employees are
time and cost; both of these can be addressed and reduced when this service becomes available to your employees. Depending on the needs of the organization, on-site clinics can assist in processing new hires, implementing workplace drug-free policies, and managing on-site employee injuries.
Aside from our health screenings, we also provide
educational sessions to help target those high risk areas that were identified in your employee population.
We are excited to offer some new topics this year, particularly one on the importance of getting established with a primary care provider. It is important, and our responsibility, to educate those in our community on appropriate use of the ER, urgent care, and primary care.
You may work with a very different demographic, and for them what will be important is getting information and tools on how to better manage chronic illnesses. Some other topics we address are menopause, mental health, nutrition, cardiovascular health, and colon cancer awareness. We want to cater our presentation to your employee demographic, so if there are any specific needs that you have identified and would like addressed,
let us know!
