WARSAW — Bowen Center has qualified for an AchieveWELL certification through the Wellness Council of Indiana. The non-profit mental healthcare provider was honored at the 2018 Indiana Health & Wellness Summit, Sept. 6-7, in Indianapolis.
Companies that earn the AchieveWELL certification have established a corporate culture that encourages and supports employee health through worksite wellness programs. The Wellness Council of Indiana provides an independent assessment of wellness processes through AchieveWELL. Bowen Center achieved the Three Star AchieveWELL designation, which indicates that a company has a foundation for a comprehensive workplace well-being program.
Mary Gerard, Bowen Center vice president of human resources, emphasized Bowen Center’s commitment to its employees. “As a healthcare provider, the health and well-being of our employees is critical to the quality of care we are privileged to provide to our patients. This AchieveWELL distinction recognizes the on-going investment in our team members and the residents of northern Indiana.”
The AchieveWELL process offers a clear understanding of the necessary components of successful worksite wellness and recognizes excellence in the field of health promotion. The Wellness Council of Indiana provides helpful tools, templates and personal coaching to aspiring AchieveWELL organizations.
The AchieveWELL assessment and evaluation is available to all organizations in Indiana through The Wellness Council of Indiana, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

Founded in 1961 as Four County Mental Health Clinic, it was renamed in 1977 in honor of Governor Otis R. Bowen, M.D. Since its beginning, the non-profit healthcare provider has grown to serve northern Indiana’s mental health and addiction needs using a total care model that integrates mind, body and spirit into treatment.
