(June 02 2014) Once again, Trilogy Health Services team members are putting their culture into action through Leading by Example, or LBE, a cornerstone of the Trilogy Health Services’ culture. Usually LBE focuses on operational and cultural expectations for this Louisville-based provider of senior health and senior living services, but since early 2013, LBE has taken on a new meaning as Trilogy Health Services placed a special focus on employee health and wellness.
Last year, a group of Trilogy employees traveled 200 miles by bicycle during the, Trilogy 200, a 200-mile wellness bicycle ride. This year, 22 employees will take part in the 3-day ride, some riding the entire 200 miles, while others participate for a portion of the ride. The Trilogy 200 will begin on June 3 and will progress over 3 days across 200 miles, with stops at 11 of Trilogy’s 80 health campus locations. Sixteen of the riders are expected to ride the entire course.
“As we continue our wellness journey we are really focused on educating our employees about the importance of wellness and being informed consumers when it comes to their healthcare services. The Trilogy 200 is the signature event for our Trilogy Wellness Week which kicks off on Saturday, May 31,” commented Randy Bufford, CEO and President of Trilogy Health Services. “We are continuing to stress the fact that each of us must take personal responsibility for our own health, which includes three basic steps: First, being active and avoiding a sedentary lifestyle; second, knowing your metrics and having regular preventative screenings; and, quitting use of tobacco products. Trilogy, as a company that cares about its employees, is here to support our team members on their personal journey to wellness.”
The route begins in Lafayette, Indiana at Creasy Springs Health Campus, and proceeds on Day 1 to Trilogy’s other Lafayette location (St. Mary Healthcare Center), West Lafayette, Indiana (Cumberland Pointe Health Campus), Delphi, Indiana (St. Elizabeth Healthcare Center) and concludes in Monticello, Indiana (White Oak Health Campus). Day 2 includes stops at Logansport, Indiana (WoodBridge Health Campus), as well as Peru, Indiana (Blair Ridge Health Campus) and Kokomo, Indiana (Waterford Place Health Campus). Day 3 wraps up with stops in Anderson, Indiana (Bethany Pointe Health Campus), Noblesville, Indiana (Prairie Lakes Health Campus) and Lebanon, Indiana (Homewood Health Campus). During Day 2 of the ride, cyclists will enjoy a trip down the Nickel Plate trail, a 40 plus mile, railtrail corridor running through Howard and Fulton Counties.
At each stop, Trilogy will host a wellness fair for campus employees. The fair will feature booths to educate and inform employees on a range of topics, including diet and nutrition, understanding your health statistics (blood pressure, etc.), and available benefits and wellness programs.
“Through our Trilogy 200 and our ongoing focus on wellness, we are encouraging our employees to embrace an active lifestyle that incorporates healthy choices into their daily routine,” Bufford continued.
In addition to the support of the Trilogy Home Office team, several organizations were instrumental in providing support for the Trilogy 200. On behalf of Trilogy’s 10,000 employees, we extend a thank you to the following companies for their support: Anthem, UHC, Metlife, GFS, Patient Care, Magellan, Trilogy Perks, Bigalow Tea, Delta Dental, and BMS.
