Consistently ranked among America's Top Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, the Cleveland Clinic is one of the largest private medical centers in the world with patients arriving from all 50 states and more than 100 nations.
Curves and the Cleveland Clinic share a mission of health, wellness, and prevention, as well as the belief that a healthy population is more productive and requires less healthcare.
In November 2008 the Cleveland Clinic began offering free Curves memberships to its staff as part of its employee wellness program. The fitness and nutrition portion of the program resulted in a 100,000-lb weight loss among employees in less than one year.
The Cleveland Clinic's wellness program is groundbreaking and unique in its scale and scope. The hospital has made a strategic decision to fund fitness and weight management programs. The Cleveland Clinic's executive leadership is jointly committed to investing in the health and wellness of its employees.
The Cleveland Clinic continues to lead the way in changing how major organizations and health plans approach health and wellness initiatives. Curves is proud to be on the forefront of this work with the Clinic. Our ultimate shared goal is to show the benefits of both increased employee health and decreased healthcare costs so that other organizations will adopt similar programs.
