Employee Wellness Month 2020

Wellness Month 2019

This October we’re celebrating Employee Wellness Month at Northwest Colorado Health!

All month long our employees will have a chance to participate in wellness activities that will be available live and recorded. And for every activity that an employee tracks, they will be entered into a drawing for 5 HUGE prizes! Staff will get bonus points if they submit a photo of their activity or surroundings during a Wellness Activity. We will be uploading the photo submissions on this page daily, so please check back to see everyone’s wellness journey this month.

You can set your location, type in the drug that your provider is writing and find local prices so you can get the best deal on your prescriptions! It also allows patients to know what they’ll be expected to pay.
