Rush System for Health shares its employee wellness program’s success

Rush System for Health shares insights on Improving Employee Wellness and Lowering Costs.

Resource cover image Now in its eighth year, the Choose Health wellness program at Rush System for Health, headquartered in Chicago, continues to evolve to improve the health of its 14,000 eligible members.
