History

Wellness Programs with Value (WPV) opened its doors in 2007. Our mission is to actively promote health and wellness through community and employer engagement, and to assist individuals to maximize their productivity by maintaining and improving their overall health.

WPV is a health promotion, disease prevention and wellness organization that provides a variety wellness services to create and sustain a healthier community in the Greater Rochester area and New York State. WPV is a recognized leader in preventative health and wellness promotion.  Our nurse-based delivery of services, from our large team of experienced nurses with both clinical and academic backgrounds, allows us to focus on the whole you, providing you with Wellness Solutions from Nurses who Care.

At WPV, we recognize that continually rising costs have caused dramatic changes in the healthcare industry, leaving consumers and organizations looking for ways to cut down on healthcare expenses. With this demand, more employers are moving their organizations to consumer directed healthcare choices with HRA's, HSA's and High Deductible Health Plans. These new healthcare options and rising costs have both employers and employees looking for cost-cutting answers on healthcare, yet have given consumers more control than ever on how their healthcare dollar is spent.

Amidst the jungle of rising costs and consumer choice, WPV offers wellness solutions that provide employers and employees with an opportunity to save money, increase their bottom line, and to create a healthy work environment, which will sustain the long-term health of your business as well as your employees.
