How Children's Hospital of Philadelphia offered meaningful choices to increase mental health awareness, engagement and drive outcomes

The pandemic presented challenges and hardships for organizations across all industries and sectors, taking an exceptional toll on employee mental health. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the nation’s first hospital devoted exclusively to the care of children, was looking for a way to better support their 14,000+ employees—whether working remotely or on the frontlines—through the pandemic and beyond.

Mental health has always been recognized as a key component of CHOP’s employee wellbeing initiatives, but the pandemic and social unrest highlighted the need for a stronger approach. Through their strategic partnership with Virgin Pulse, CHOP launched several wellbeing initiatives that united their diverse workforce, addressed mental health concerns, and improved awareness and utilization of employee benefits programs—all while supporting the whole-person wellbeing of each individual.
