Michigan-based health provider increases full-time employment by over 20 percent in 2005; expects to double staff despite gloomy regional economy

Leade Health, a disease prevention company, expanded its full-time staff by more than 20 percent in 2005 and anticipates 100 percent employee growth in 2006, officials announced today. The healthcare provider is experiencing unprecedented success due to its “health coaching” services that focus on Tobacco Cessation, Weight Management, Stress Management and Cardiovascular Health.

The strong growth is fueled by Leade Health’s health coaching work that helps organizations lower medical costs in an era of continuous premium increases. Premiums for employer-based health insurance rose by 11.2 percent in 2004, the fourth consecutive year of double-digit increases. All types of health plans - including health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred provider organizations (PPOs) and point-of-service plans (POS) demonstrated double-digit increases, according to The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation’s Employee Health Benefits 2004 Annual Survey. Leade Health’s signature health coaching model coaches individuals in changing behaviors that compromise their health and productivity.

“Leade increased its full-time employment by over 20 percent in 2005 and is expected to increase the number of employees 100 percent by the end of 2006,” explained President and CEO Michael Mulvihill. “In the last three months, Leade Health has brought on a General Manager, a Quality Manager, and an Administrative Manager and has just filled an IT Manager position. This is a very exciting time in our history, and we are taking a very proactive approach to our expansion.”
