Well City Designation

In 1991, the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), developed a unique and important worksite health promotion initiative. Sponsored locally by the Wellness Council of Wisconsin, the “Well City USA,” initiative challenges local business communities to work together by engaging entire business communities in improving the health and well-being of their workforces.

The specific goal of the initiative is to bring recognition to our area as the nation’s next “Well City.” The goal will be achieved when a minimum of 20 employers who collectively employ 20% of the city’s workforce meet the requirements of WELCOA’s Small Business, Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Well Workplace Award within a three year period.

Ten cities have been designated as Well Cities:

  • Jacksonville, FL
  • Omaha, NE
  • Chattanooga, TN
  • Hobart, IN
  • Lincoln, NE
  • Kearney, NE
  • Kanawha Valley, WV
  • Gainsville, FL (Gold Well City)
  • Bangor, ME
  • Morgantown, WV
