Evidence has shown a strong correlation between a healthy provider and the positive care that the provider can promote to others. Many evidence-based health promotion programs have been implemented throughout many health systems. These programs have shown improvement of the providers’ overall health. And in return, these providers are able to better care for their patients. Detailed reports have shown many health consequences that healthcare providers have acquired due to long hours, intense training, lack of time, lack of sleep, and the concept of always putting their patients first. A health system in Springfield, Illinois was examined to determine if a health promotion program would benefit their providers. This health system had not yet implemented a health promotion program for providers, due to time and uncertainty if people would participate.

Surveying was taken into great detail to evaluate what areas of health providers would like to focus on improving, and how they would want this information presented to them. Providers also rated their overall health. This information was interpreted and presented to stakeholders at this specific health system. An explanation of the data collected was provided, as well as a sample health promotion program they would be able to implement. This sample program was developed using an evidence-based planning method. This specific program was developed based on survey results. An evaluation was then completed after the presentation to determine the likelihood they would implement the health promotion program, along with any potential issues. A follow-up project would be recommended to implement the actual program discussed in this project and to evaluate its effectiveness.
