Employee wellness at The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) is based on best practices and guiding principles from the Comprehensive Workplace Health Promotion Approach (CWHP). The Comprehensive Workplace Health Promotion approach protects and enhances the health of employees. The approach relies, and builds upon, the employer’s efforts to create a supportive management culture; and the employee’s efforts to care for their own wellbeing.

The Comprehensive Workplace Health Promotion Approach (CWHP) considers and addresses three important categories to building and ensuring a safe and healthy work environment:
1. Occupational health and safety,
2. Voluntary health practices; and
3. Organizational culture.

Using this model as a foundation, TSH has developed and implemented the “Balance: Make Health Happen” program to support employee health and well- being. The program integrates key components that help address the following:
– Physical wellness such as reducing work- related injury, illness and disability by addressing the physical environment;
– Occupational wellness which ensures a safe and healthy work environment by encouraging organizational engagement in safe and healthy work practices; and
– Psychosocial/ psychological wellness focusing on the emotional and psychological wellbeing.

At The Scarborough Hospital (TSH), our wellness programs are holistically designed with our employees' needs in mind. The key objective is to promote healthy, engaged employees who effectively serve our community by providing quality care. At TSH we offer a variety of health and wellness programs to support a healthy workplace environment. Programs are holistically designed to promote a positive work/life balance and overall well-being of body, mind and spirit. We are committed to providing a proactive approach to health and work collaboratively with partners to provide staff with a variety of recognition, wellness programs, health promotion, and disease prevention initiatives.

The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) is committed to building and sustaining its healthy workplace practices and standards by continuing to build on organizational capacity and existing supports for a healthy and safe workplace.
