News: CGM opens an IT-supported HEALTH CENTER

CompuGroup Medical expands corporate health management

Koblenz, September 27, 2012: Today at 4:00 pm, CompuGroup Medical AG opened its own CGM HEALTH CENTER in Koblenz. Employees are offered a variety of sports, preventive and health activities in facility that is 9150 square feet in size. With the help of intelligent IT for physicians, dentists, hospitals, other inpatient facilities and many other market participants, the company does its part to provide the best healthcare worldwide. CGM employees are now able to directly benefit from that focus on health.

"Check out the healthy choices at the CGM HEALTH CENTER" is how CompuGroup Medical is advertising at the salad bar inside the company-owned bistro. The company pays a lot of attention to health and to life-work balance. “Together with our customers, we work daily on improving people’s health. We would also like to measure our engagement in our own employees’ health against this aspiration,” emphasizes Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG.

The CGM HEALTH CENTER was developed together with renowned fitness experts and scores high with innovative health concepts in the work environment. For example, the strength training and endurance equipment is electronically linked to enable the optimized control and documentation of all training units. The result is safe and effective training: the employee can review his athletic activities at any time and can determine his progress together with his trainer or adapt his personal training plan.

Philipp Gabrian, Manager of the CGM HEALTH CENTER & Feel Good Manager, mentioned the movement concept as another example: “It is specifically designed as therapy and for the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders and may prevent the negative effects of working primarily while sitting.” These disorders should not be underestimated: nearly 80% of all adults in Germany suffer from back pain.

And this is what makes the CGM HEALTH CENTER even more special: the employees are able to use the endurance and strength training equipment free of charge. In addition, various classes, physical therapy and massages are offered as well.

CGM is continuously expanding its corporate health management program. The employees are already benefiting from measures to ensure safety at work and to provide an ergonomic workplace, preventive medical care such as eye exams, flu shots and sports events, or from healthy nutrition in the company-owned bistro. CGM‘s Koblenz Technology Park also boasts a daycare center that assists young parents in their return to work.
