Denver, CO, Thursday, October 29, 2020-- Covid-19 is pressuring the people who provide essential medical care. Tremendous stress is impacting those working in hospital Food and Nutrition Services (FANS), Environmental Services, and Nursing, and their patients and families. This pandemic compounds fears about physical, mental, and financial health.

Burnout and turnover are serious issues. Wellness programs address this by nurturing resilience, substantially benefiting care providers and the healthcare system. Progressive Health Center (PHC) is proud to donate wellness gift cards to Colorado’s healthcare front line, redeemable for health coaching, massage therapy, acupuncture, and aromatherapy at the hospital workplace.

“Gift card recipients are very enthusiastic, saying the treatments relieve stress, promote emotional wellbeing, and raise their resilience set points,” says Jeff Altman, Executive Director of Progressive Health Center.

How people can help.

Donate to PHC. Gifts are awarded as wellness gift cards to applicants within the Colorado healthcare community.

Give back to frontline healthcare workers so they can better care for themselves, their families, and their patients. Each donation is a gift to our entire community.
