The Benefits department conducts onsite meetings, presentations, communications and activities which have centered around three campaign themes in 2016: Nutrition, Fitness and Stress Management.Over the years, Bridgewell has benefited from vendor partners like The Partners Group (TPG) and Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oregon to enhance its wellness program and overall vision.
