About SJC Wellness

What is the SJC Wellness program?
The Wellness Program is an employer / employee health partnership designed to assist employees with the guidance, encouragement, empowerment, and education to deal with health and fitness issues.

Why do we need wellness?
Besides the obvious — that we all want to live long and healthy lives — because health care costs are going through the roof and staying healthy is one of the best ways of reducing those costs!

How we help.
The County Wellness Program provides educational programs and resources to assist employees in recognizing and addressing potential health risks. It also provides employees opportunities to improve their overall health and well being.

Who is eligible to participate?
All employees who are in active work status and are eligible for benefits as defined by St. Johns County Employees Benefits are eligible to participate, along with eligible spouses and dependent children.

As part of the Health Partnership, the county will make available to employees educational materials designed to bring the latest and most innovative sources of information for making good healthy choices.
