SIMED is honored to announce that we have been recognized as a Fit-Friendly work site for 2015.
SIMED is honored to announce that we have been recognized as a Fit-Friendly Worksite for 2015. The Fit-Friendly Worksites Recognition program is an award given by the American Heart Association’s My Heart. My Life. initiative. It is intended to be a catalyst for positive change in the workplace across America and right here in North Central Florida. It recognizes worksites for making the health and wellness of their employees a priority.

We have been recognized at the Gold level, which means that: 

  • We offer all employees physical activity support at the worksite.
  • We promote a wellness culture at the worksite.
  • We embrace at least nine criteria as outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture.
As a Fit-Friendly Worksite, we are corporate trailblazers who have adopted the spirit of the initiative and have the vision to try improving the health and wellness of employees and the worksite.  This is the third year in a row that SIMED has been recognized and we are proud to continue on our path towards workplace wellness.
We would like to offer special thanks to all of our employees who practice healthy lifestyles and are making positive healthy changes every day!

It's No Joke! April 1, 2015 is National Walking Day.

SIMED Health celebrates National Walking Day with the American Heart Association.

On Wednesday April 1, we’ll be celebrating National Walking Day with the American Heart Association.

Physical inactivity is a huge national problem. Eighty percent of adults in America don’t get enough physical activity. That’s true for many of us right here at SIMED. And it means we’re at greater risk for heart disease, stroke and other chronic diseases. But we’re not going to take it sitting down.

On April 1, we’ll join millions of men and women across America as they pledge to live a healthier lifestyle and get physically active. Here’s what you can do to join in the celebration:

  • Show your support and wear sneakers to work on April 1.
  • Since you’ll be wearing your sneakers, we challenge you to take a 30-minute walk on April 1 — and keep it up.
  • Visit and use the American Heart Association’s free tips and tools to stay motivated on your walking program and to sign up to participate and raise funds for your community’s Heart Walk.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for a 30 minute walk on April 1st! We'll see you outside.
