Financial Well-Being

This year Financial Well-Being continues to be one of our three core dimensions of health and well-being with on-demand webinars and one-on-one consultations.

Why does a focus on financial well-being matter?

Financial Health impacts all areas of your health – including your physical and personal health. All teammates are encouraged to participate in a webinar, class or one-on-one consultation.

Planning your retirement is an important part of your financial well-being. Become familiar with your career stage and Atrium Health’s retirement savings plans. Access the Atrium Health Teammate Retirement website for a retirement plans tutorial, guidelines to save based on your career stage, FAQs and more.

Making small changes to your day can add to your savings. Practice financial well-being with small daily changes using the LiveWELL Money Wise Challenge.

Hear from Teammate Nadine Keen, RN

On a Tuesday evening in April 2019, one of Atrium Health’s nurses finished her day at work. She visited the gym and stopped by the mall before heading home. Within two hours of leaving at the end of her day, she underwent emergency brain surgery for a stroke.

“If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone,” said Nadine Keen, RN. 

As a case management nurse covering the med-surg units at CMC Main, Nadine taught several patients the importance of advance care planning. She had the conversation with her mother, but never considered any paperwork for herself.

She did not have family history of heart disease or strokes. That did not matter. During her last stop at the mall last April, she felt fatigued and weak while trying on clothes. Suddenly she collapsed, losing all movement on her left side. Medics arrived and noticed her slurred speech. They first took her to the nearest emergency department. Assessing her condition, she was then airlifted to CMC Main for immediate neurosurgery on a clot in a cerebral artery.

Fortunately, many factors worked in Nadine’s favor. She spent two weeks in the ICU, one month in rehab, and three months recovering with her mother temporarily helping at home. The time paid off – she participated in a 5K recently and is so grateful for the support and care provided by her teammates.

Although Nadine has more work to do, she shows no sign of a person who suffered a stroke or underwent brain surgery.

By sharing her story, she hopes to inspire and motivate teammates to complete their advance care planning. Speak with your loved ones about their future health plans. Choose a Healthcare Agent and complete your paperwork (for Healthcare Power of Attorney and Living Will). Although the future is uncertain, we can always take steps to be prepared.
