As both an administrator for the Township and a member of the plan itself, I can personally attest to the value added benefits that the Wellness program bring. I’ve learned tips and tricks from all of the webinars I’ve attended, lowered my cholesterol thanks to my biometric screening and received money just by being proactive regarding my health. It’s a complete win for everyone involved and I cannot say enough great things about the program.

Testimonials

The Health and Wellness Team at the Delaware Valley Health Trust is exceptional! The Trust has numerous resources that focus on all aspects of health – physical, mental, preventative, and environmental. The Borough has benefited greatly from wellness programs like annual biometric screenings,  health incentives, and the development of an employee wellness and fitness room in the Borough of Conshohocken Administrative Building. We could not have spearheaded that initiative without access to the resources available to Health Trust Members. For the Borough, having access to these pivotal resources has helped encourage and support a healthier lifestyle for all our employees. More importantly, membership in the Trust has enabled the Borough to take concerted steps towards fully developing an internal culture of health and wellness at our workplace.
