Joondalup Health campus has recognised a need for more support services and facilities to be provided to their staff. To cater to this need, a Wellness Program for all Joondalup Health Campus employees is currently in its planning stages.
A wellness program is a fantastic way to promote a healthy lifestyle through proper diet, light exercises, stress management, and illness prevention. It can also include social activities and events.
To improve the health and wellbeing of Ramsay Health Care employees at Joondalup Health Campus through the provision of a wellness program, which: promotes and facilitates healthy lifestyles; builds social networks; and boosts working morale.
JHC currently offers a range of services for our staff and now offers a range of new services through the Wellness Program.
