The MediSys Health Network is pleased to announce that it has launched its Staff Wellness Station program at Flushing and Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. The initiative was created by the Department of Psychiatry to support the mental health and overall well-being of all employees.
The goal of the Wellness Station program is to offer a personal and sensory-based experience to help team members relax and feel comfortable enough to express their thoughts and feelings about their experiences during these difficult times.
Each wellness station is staffed by community wellness coordinators, who are also creative arts therapists. These individuals utilize several stress-reducing modalities and offer a variety of relaxation tools and inspirational materials to help employees unwind. Some of the tools and materials used include: Tibetan singing bowls, essential oils, coloring sheets and affirmative cards with words of encouragement printed on them. There are also printed informational handouts and referral resources for those who want more assistance.
The wellness stations are open five days a week and employees are encouraged to visit them routinely so that they can achieve the best results.
