Rittenhouse Women's Wellness Center Launches Corporate Wellness Practice With GlobalFit

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - An established medical and wellness practice is ready to whip corporate Philadelphia into shape.

Rittenhouse Corporate Wellness (RCW) is a new venture that provides small to medium-sized companies with the resources, strategies and services to improve their employees' overall health and wellbeing. RCW utilizes the team of healthcare professionals at the Rittenhouse Women's Wellness Center; both are under the medical direction of board-certified internist, Dr. Leslie Saltzman.

To round out their corporate offering, RCW turned to another local institution: GlobalFit, the Philadelphia 100 Hall of Fame company that has offered corporate wellness programs since 1992. A leading national provider, GlobalFit offers a range of options for healthy living to some 70 million covered lives at over 1,400 companies and groups in the U.S. and Canada.

"RCW works with companies to develop personalized comprehensive worksite wellness programs that fit each company's needs and culture," says Bob Saltzman, President of RCW. "Our goal is to help companies take a proactive approach towards educating, and improving the health of, their employees. GlobalFit gives us the core components of our health and wellness offering: special low rates on gym memberships, at-home fitness equipment and health coaching, as well as their own Destination: You activity program."

Dr. Saltzman leads the RCW multi-disciplinary team, which includes a registered dietician, psychologist, certified life coach, yoga and meditation instructor, fitness specialists and health coaches. Together, the RCW team offers health and wellness services, education and programs to its clients at their worksites in the Greater Philadelphia area.
