About VC-WELL

Slide As your dedicated Wellness team,
We Strive
to help you achieve your goals so that you can be your best you.

Slide The Ventura County Wellness Program (VC-WELL!) provides and encourages workplace policies, programs and practices that promote the overall health and well-being of all County employees. VC-WELL is comprised of a dedicated group of exceptionally qualified professionals to deliver on the program’s goals to promote the health and well-being of County employees, and mitigate increases in health care costs.

In 1983, the County of Ventura experienced a 71% increase in medical claims. In response, the Board of Supervisors approved a Labor Management Committee recommendation to establish the County’s Wellness Program as part of the solution to help contain escalating health care costs. Since initiated in 1985, the Wellness Program has continued to develop and offer innovative programs to help employees improve their health, and has been repeatedly recognized as one of “California’s Healthiest Employers.” Some of VC-WELL’s awards include the California Fit Business “Gold” Award, C. Everett Koop National Health Award, Health Action Leadership Award, National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award, Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports Commendation, National Association for Worksite Health Promotion Business and Industry Award and the Exemplary Public Worksite Health Promotion Program Award by the National Association of Public Worksite Health Promotion, in association with the Council of State Governments.

VC-Well is a well-defined and robust program which is aligned with the County Strategic Plan. In Focus Area #2 of the County’s Strategic Plan, our Board of Supervisors recognize that “a healthy workforce contributes to happy and productive employees that are better able to serve the community.” Strategic Goal 4 of Focus Area #2 requires us to: “Champion and invest in workplace policies, programs, and practices that promote the overall health and well-being of all County employees.”
