What Company Leaders are Saying

“To state that the Executive Health Program changed my life would be an understatement. I believe that in large part it helped to save my life! As a result of participating in my first Executive Health Program physical 4 years ago, it was discovered that I had many risk factors for developing heart disease. I was extremely overweight, I had very high (380 points) untreated cholesterol and was leading a very sedentary lifestyle. The attending physician wisely suggested that due to these risk factors that I take a stress test. I did and the results were not favorable. The irregular results of that test led to other test and eventually to discovering that at the age of 40, I was going to need coronary bypass surgery! One can only imagine the shock to myself and my family. After all, I felt fine and was way too young to worry about heart problems…or so I thought. However, what was at first received as devastating news became instead a wake up call. I had a very successful surgery to bypass the four blockages that were discovered and decided that it was time to get serious about managing my health going forward. To that end, I now exercise 5 days a week; over the course of 4 years I have lost 75 pounds; I eat a very healthy combination of foods; I have gotten my cholesterol down below 150 points and this past May, I completed my first half marathon and finished the 13.1 mile run in just over 2 hours. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank GOD and count my blessings that my employer participates in the Executive Health Program.”

“Having participated in Metro Health Hospital’s Executive Health Program for over 15 years, I am pleased to recommend it to others. Executive Health has become an integral, complimentary part of the care provided by my primary care physician and my personal health management plan. The program’s importance was made explicit when a potentially life-threatening condition was identified through a series of tests completed during my annual Executive Health Check-up. These early signals alerted my primary care physician to follow up and subsequently confirm diagnostic tests indicating a potential problem. Because of this early alert, immediate treatment was quickly initiated and a fully successful outcome resulted. It is because of that direct experience in the value of the program and the professionalism of the Executive Health team who administrate it, that I continue to participate in the program and more importantly, encourage my colleagues to participate. Executive Health is a key part of my strategy for good health.”

“As a 7-year veteran of the Executive Health Program at Metro Health, I find the program is a great benefit to Gill Industry’s executive team for more than the obvious reasons of preventing and detecting serious health conditions that could jeopardize our leadership team. The Executive Health team spends one-on-one time with each of us to discuss health issues and provide valuable information to better manage these issues. Health histories are received which give us measurable data and insight into positive or negative trends over time. I love being able to get all the tests and exams done in one place; it’s a great time saver. It’s also great that the staff is persistent in helping schedule yearly appointments to ensure I make time and don’t put examinations off. I highly recommend this program to other companies.”
