Health & Wellness

Healthy providers working in healthy environments can provide better care to patients. Yukon hospitals have a number of activities, programs and supports in place that are designed to reach our goal of supported and engaged people delivering safe and excellent hospital care.

Occupational Health & Safety

We support, promote and strive to maintain a safe and healthy working environment – and one that encourages work/life balance – for all staff. Our hospital team at all three facilities work together to encourage a culture of prevention by developing and implementing policies and programs such as:

  • Health and safety investigations and reports
  • Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees
  • N95 respirator fit testing
  • Flu clinics
  • Immunizations
  • Infection control
  • Musculoskeletal injury prevention
  • Falls prevention
  • Blood/body fluid exposure prevention policies
  • Disability management and return to work support
  • Occupational hygiene monitoring
Working on Wellness

Encouraging work-life balance is incredibly important to our team. Our hospitals fully support and offer a formal workplace wellness program called Working on Wellness (WOW), which includes activities and initiatives that promote the physical, social and emotional well-being of our team members. Initiatives of the program are completely employee-driven and organized. Some examples include:

  • Diabetes Awareness Month
  • Fitness Boot Camp
  • Fun Family Days
  • Mental Health Week
  • Mini-Massage Week
  • Retirement Seminar
  • Smoking Cessation Campaign
  • Staff Christmas Party
