Executive Health Check

The health of your key executives is vital to the health of your company. Mercy's Executive Health Program offers evaluation and counseling with an emphasis on preventing health problems. Individuals receive a comprehensive screening examination, followed by a complete report and guidance for managing their health while maintaining a crowded calendar and highly productive lifestyle.

Individuals and spouses are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Executive Health Programs. We offer two Executive Health Check program levels:

  • Executive Health Check
    This comprehensive test includes a diagnostic cardiovascular exam, as well as an evaluation of your lifestyle, nutritional
    habits and fitness level. Mercy ’s team of heart experts provides specific diet and stress management guidelines, a custom exercise program and additional heart health recommendations based upon your needs.
  • Executive Health Check II
    Executive Health Check II provides a comprehensive medical examination combined with an analysis of your lifestyle,
    nutritional habits and fitness level. Assessment of your overall health and cardiac risk serve as a baseline to develop
    personalized exercise and prevention programs.
