SOUTH KINGSTOWN – South County Hospital was the only hospital in Rhode Island to earn a Gold recognition for the American Heart Association as a Fit-Friendly Worksite, the hospital announced Thursday.

Fit-Friendly Worksites are recognized by the Heart Association as employers who “go above and beyond” when it comes to employee health, according to a hospital release.

Criteria for Heart Association distinction include walking routes, walking programs and tracking tools, a smoke-free environment, and exercise and yoga classes.

“We work hard at South County Hospital to provide a work environment that promotes good heart health,” Sherri Zino, South County Hospital cardiopulmonary services manager, said in a statement. “It is especially important to not only encourage healthy living, but to set an example to the community.”

This is the second consecutive year that South County Hospital was recognized by the Heart Association.

Since its 2007 inception, more than 5.6 million employees at more than 2,500 worksites have participated in the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly program.
