GET STARTED! If you are eager to get started, you can call us directly at (585) 530-2050 or e-mail us at Healthy_Living_Center@urmc.rochester.edu. We will welcome your call.
You can get a head-start by “knowing your numbers” – your cholesterol levels, blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), and other measures which will give you a good snapshot of your health. That way, you’ll know where you want to focus your efforts and we’ll be able to help you find the services that best suit your needs and your schedule.
Free health (biometric) screenings are offered throughout the year at various locations convenient for employees. Registered Nurses from the School of Nursing conduct the screenings, and you can easily schedule an appointment online at e-health scheduler. You also have the option of working with your own doctor to get your numbers.
With your numbers in hand, you can then complete a Personal Health Assessment (PHA), an online tool that will help you gauge your current level of wellness. Check out the incentives above for completing your PHA.
LOCATION AND HOURS We offer services in several locations to make it convenient for you. Our main office is located at 46 Prince Street, around the corner from the Memorial Art Gallery. We also offer services at many worksite locations such as Helen wood Hall, Saunders Research Building, Medical Center, Corporate Woods, Science Park, River Campus and Sawgrass.
Our main office hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 am – 7 pm and Fridays from 8 am – 12 pm. Group programs are offered early mornings, over the lunch hour and after work, depending on the program and locations.
You decide! If you want to feel better and live healthier, get started by getting a biometric screening and then completing the online Personal Health Assessment, which produces a personalized health "report card." If, on seeing the results, you would welcome support, call us at (585) 530-2050 or e-mail: Healthy_Living_Center@urmc.rochester.edu. We'll talk things over and decide together how best to support you on your road to better health.
