FAQ Topic: Employee Wellness

What is the Wellness Committee?

The Wellness Committee is a group of employees that will represent individual department interests in the program, represent the work force, help to steer the program and award the Employee-of-the-Month.  All departments are represented.  If you are interested in serving on the committee, email employee.wellness@ketteringoh.org.

Is my personal health information, as obtained from screenings, kept confidential?

Yes.  Due to the “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act” (HIPAA), Kettering Health Network (who we use for screenings) is legally bound to confidentiality with any personal information obtained from any screening.  Additionally, the City is not seeking information regarding individual health levels but rather aggregate information representing the overall workforce.
