RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Valley Health System has earned CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ re-accreditation for maintaining a strong commitment to the health of its employees and satisfying the latest, comprehensive requirements of the Gold Standard.

The CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of CEOs founded by former President George H.W. Bush, developed and administers the Gold Standard, an employee wellness accreditation program that addresses cancer prevention in the workplace. Nearly 200 private, nonprofit and government employers in a wide range of occupational categories have earned Gold Standard accreditation, including the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and a number of NCI- designated cancer centers.

“Achieving CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ re-accreditation reflects Valley’s commitment to providing exceptional cancer prevention services to our employees, their families, and to all of our patients, and is recognition of the quality of our comprehensive, multidisciplinary patient care,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO, Valley Health System and The Valley Hospital. “We are proud to have met this high standard once again and to be recognized for our efforts to reduce the risk of cancer for our employees and the community.”

One of the initiatives Valley was applauded for is its comprehensive and voluntary Health andWellness screening program for its employees called “It’s Your Move”. The program incentivizes employees through discounts on health insurance premiums, to complete a Health Risk Assessment and biometric screenings. The Employee Health and Wellness staff then reviews all lab results and personally contacts participating employees regarding their results.

The employees receive individual education, health coaching, resources and three-month, follow-up lab work to determine progress and improvement. The program’s outcomes showed dramatic improvement in the overall health and lab values for those employees who were found to be pre-diabetic but unaware of that fact, illustrating that lifestyle changes and positive support do make a difference.

In addition, Valley’s It’s Your Move program has been selected as a Gold Standard Best Practice and is highlighted on the CEO Cancer Gold Standard website as a model program.
