Thompson Health partners with UR Medicine Employee Wellness to make prioritizing your wellbeing possible, with simple, convenient, enjoyable programming. All programs are available to all full-time and part-time associates and spouses or domestic partners enrolled in a Thompson Health medical insurance plan. With plenty of opportunities available, there’s something for everyone.

Personal Health Assessment

Step 1: Online health survey

Grab your smartphone or computer and log in to your secure wellness portal; or create your account using your full name and date of birth. Once inside, the survey will ask about your lifestyle, health habits, and overall wellbeing. Takes about 10 minutes.

Step 2: On-site biometric screening

A registered nurse will measure your blood pressure, heart rate, abdominal girth, and BMI. They’ll also take a small sample of blood through a finger stick (no blood draw!) to get your cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood glucose numbers within minutes. Don't worry—you don’t need to fast beforehand. Your nurse will explain your results, answer your questions, and offer useful recommendations and resources to help you live your best life. Takes 20 minutes.
