Kind Health Group Introduces Employee Health Coaching Programs for Corporate Clients Featuring Scientifically Designed and Medically Supervised Employee Wellness Programs
Kind Health Group coaching programs are physician-led and supported by a team of certified health coaches. Designed to develop health and wellness strategies specifically for individual employee needs, these programs are effectively treating and preventing many of the chronic diseases in our society today.
Over the past two years, Kind Health Group has been offering individualized health management programs – including regular meetings with personal health coaches and self-directed achievement tracking via their proprietary online app – to patients with great success.
“Our patients have achieved life-changing results by following our programs. We now want to take the next step by offering our holistic and preventive approach to corporate clients looking to power their workplace health programs and benefit from a healthier, more energetic workforce,” said Dr. Georgine Nanos, board-certified physician and Founder & CEO of Kind Health Group.
Employers stand to benefit significantly from offering corporate health coaching programs to their staff. First, they benefit from improved productivity and decreased absenteeism, which costs employers in the United States $225.8 billion, or $1,685 per employee, each year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additionally, employee wellness programs have proven to lower work-related stress, known as the leading workplace health problem. Finally, health coaching can lower self-funded insurance costs for employers, and unlock better employer insurance premiums from insurance payors, which have more than doubled since 2003.
Kind Health Group programs support the overall goals of Accountable Care Organization (ACO) relationships between employers and healthcare providers. The patient-centered focus on health education, results tracking, and participant accountability delivers results that sustain themselves into the future.
“We teach participants to set specific health-related goals and assume an active role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Instead of following the old care provider pattern of treating symptoms and diseases, we shift the focus towards preventive care by covering nutrition, exercise, and stress management with long term perspective,” said Dr. Georgine Nanos.
With plans starting at $249 per employee, Kind Health Group programs offer concierge health coaching to participants, including services such as:
- Individual health status assessment by board-certified physician
- Definition of personal S.M.A.R.T. goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time Bound)

Kind Health Group employee health coaching programs encourage participants to get more joy out of life, be more present in relationships, and build better communities according to their mantra, ‘Invest in your health, nourish your soul.’
