LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville-based SentryHealth recently won two awards for their efforts to improve healthcare and lower costs in the healthcare industry. Awards include the 2019 Inc.credible Health & Wellness Award presented by Greater Louisville Inc. and the Worksite Wellness Gold Award, which honors companies that provide health and wellness programs for their employees, presented by the Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville. Both awards recognize the hard work of businesses in Louisville, KY.

Combining years of data, advanced analytics, and a high-technology platform called Healthward, SentryHealth addresses the chronic employee health issues that are associated with more than 70 percent of medical spending.
SentryHealth was recognized during two award ceremonies held on Thursday, May 16.
“We are very pleased to accept these awards and to be recognized as a leader in the industry. We are committed to a healthy outcome for every participant and a delighted client,” said CEO and co-founder, Alice Shade. “The tremendous amount of growth and success SentryHealth has accomplished up to this point is a testament to the hard work and dedication our employees put forth every day.
