"Been There, Done That" - You Won’t Have to Reinvent the Wheel
Our Business Health team will help you create a culture of well-being in your organization, using the same successful approach that the MUSC Office of Health Promotion utilized with our own employees. Our programs are based on the science of health promotion and evidence-based practices, and are delivered directly to your worksite by our team of health experts.
Our program dovetails with the nine tenets of the South Carolina Hospital Association Working Well and the Charleston Healthy Business Challenge, of which MUSC is a partner.
Our Business Health approach is tailored to meet the specific needs of your organization. We will listen to your issues, develop a recommended set of services and customize a health promotion program to your budget, health needs, and physical environment.
Business Health offers a comprehensive suite of health solutions from which to choose. We can develop individual programs or a comprehensive approach based on your business’ needs. Here is a list of popular programs and services we deliver to Lowcountry employers. If you have a special request or would like to consider an option we do not currently provide, let us know and we will develop a solution. Call Alicia Culler at 843-792-2840 or utilize the form to request a free, no obligation proposal. We will send you an assessment that will provide the essential information needed for us to provide a plan. Depending on the size and complexity of your organization, a site visit may be necessary.

- Virtual Health - Telehealth technology allows you to see a doctor from the comfort of home, work or on-the-go, without having to travel to a clinic.
- Executive Health - Executives undergo an efficient and thorough examination that focuses on early detection, lifestyle enhancement, and disease prevention.
Good mental health is essential for maintaining good physical health and overall well-being.
- Stress Management - Helping your employees and work teams understand unhealthy stress and healthy ways to cope with stress are key business imperatives.
- Employee Assistance Program (EAP) - An EAP provides employees, their spouses and children mental health services to manage anxiety, depression, workplace stress, relationship issues, sleep problems, and grief.
