For Immediate Release:
medicine society recognizes Lilly
CHICAGO, May 15, 2002-The American College of Occupational and Environmental Health (ACOEM) has selected Eli Lilly and Company, Indianapolis, Ind., as a recipient of the 2002 Corporate Health Achievement Award (CHAA). The company was selected based on its exemplary health and wellness policies and programs for employees. In particular, Lilly's Employee Assistance Program (EAP), in-house physical therapy, and Lilly Exposure Guidelines have been designated as CHAA Model Programs.
The Award was presented April 17 during ACOEM's annual American Occupational Health Conference in Chicago, Ill. Gregory N. Larkin, MD, Director of Corporate Health Services, accepted the Award on behalf of Lilly.
ACOEM, an international medical specialty society of more than 6,000 occupational and environmental medicine physicians, recognizes the best corporate health programs in America through the CHAA competition. The award honors and provides national recognition to North American corporations and institutions exhibiting excellence in employee health, safety and environmental management, and recognizes the finest health programs in America. Competing organizations are judged on their commitment to, and excellence in, creating comprehensive and innovative health and safety programs. Examiners look for measurable results in 23 quality categories covering four areas - healthy people, a healthy environment, a healthy company, and management and leadership.
Lilly's management supports aggressive development of medical benefits and services that enhance productivity and the quality of the work life and environment of workers. Several health and medical programs are offered on site by Lilly for its employees. Chief among these is the on-site physical therapy program. Through this initiative, Lilly provides reduced fees, streamlined claims forms, and decreased time off from work resulting in ease of delivery of care, fewer numbers of visits per case, and higher patient satisfaction. In addition to the in-house physical therapy, Lilly also offers on-site mammography, gynecology, personal lab services, and a colonoscopy screening network.
