Arkansas Hospital Challenge Invites Employees to Healthy Competition

Deadline for Employees to Enter is Feb. 28!

Here is a great incentive for Baptist Health employees to achieve their fitness goals this spring!

Following last year’s successful debut of this healthy competition, the Healthy Active Arkansas Initiative and Arkansas Center for Health Improvement are inviting hospital employees in the state to participate in the Arkansas Hospital Challenge.

The challenge for hospitals across the state will be a part of the upcoming Blue & You Fitness Challenge, and Baptist Health employees who register for this free program will be automatically entered to represent their hospital in the statewide contest.

Healthy Active Arkansas and BHealthy

The Arkansas Hospital Challenge is a great compliment to Baptist Health’s BHealthy campaign promoting healthy lifestyles for Baptist Health employees, and it is strongly endorsed by Troy Wells in his role as board president of Healthy Active Arkansas and Baptist Health CEO.

The Arkansas Center for Health Improvement will award a regional hospital fitness challenge champion within each region of the state, and there will be an overall state fitness challenge champion.

Make it a Baptist Health hospital that wins the state championship!

The Blue & You Fitness Challenge (hosted by Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the Arkansas Department of Health, and the Arkansas Department of Human Services) is a free three-month competition aimed at increasing cardiovascular activity.

The contest will run from March 1 through May 31 with participants striving to exercise as much as possible while logging their workouts and activity via the challenge website.

Regional winners will be chosen based on the Blue & You contest measurements, which include:

• highest percentage of eligible employees participating

• lowest dropout rate

• highest percentage of employees logging 30 exercise points

• highest average of most days exercised

The overall winner will be chosen based on the number of eligible employees participating.

The Arkansas Hospital Challenge is a fun way to track your weekly exercise and lead the way for other organizations in Arkansas.
