Back yourself and prioritise your most important asset
Our expert health team understand the unique challenges faced by leadership teams. We know that executives face high-stress levels, burnout and constant pressure to perform at their best. An executive needs to be supported in their own health and wellbeing to be able to lead their teams effectively. Undertaking our executive health programs creates a fundamental change in the lives of the individual executive and their business.
Leaders are expected to make consistently good decisions under pressure
While medical testing is an important tool in our arsenal, our team rises to the challenge of understanding an executive’s specific circumstances to help them manage their health. After all, your most important asset to your team and business is your health!
A happier, healthier, and more resilient leader will thrive in their position with better decision-making, performance under pressure and improved work-life balance. Combined with better physical health and positive mental health, these things will propel you and your team to success.
Complete Wellbeing Program
A complete look at wellbeing is something that has been sorely lacking in corporate and executive health. Each sector of your physical and mental health interacts synergistically, and so it just makes sense to consider all areas when building a complete health profile. Our Complete Wellbeing Program leaves the old, siloed approach behind and takes a new holistic look at the health of leaders.
We have developed a complete model of practice for corporate wellbeing that fills a gap in wellbeing assessment to integrate physical and psychological aspects of health. We created our Complete Wellbeing philosophy based on our years of corporate health expertise, understanding of our clientele and evidence-based research on proactive physical health and positive mental health.
Ford Health’s Complete Wellbeing Program incorporates four integrated components: profile building, sense-making, skill-building and supportive coaching.
The Complete Wellbeing Program includes:
- A comprehensive medical, physical and pathology assessment
- Mental wellbeing assessment including current mental health status, resilience and positive mental health
- Consultation and planning for subsequent actions
- A personalised Complete Wellbeing health report
- Access to Complete Wellbeing resource hub
- Health and wellbeing coaching
Keep key individuals working effectively, build their resilience and develop them as leaders for a healthier culture across your organisation. Our Executive Health Assessments are designed specifically for executives and key staff.
This group face challenges and stresses that are unique to their level of position. Our team understand the expectations and responsibilities of those in leadership positions, and we provide health assessments centred around this. Our team of Doctors, Dietitians and Physiologists look deeper into the root causes of health issues faced by executives by taking a complete look at their health. Our medical practitioners utilise their years of expertise, understanding of the executive work-life and consultations with an executive to present an ongoing action plan.
Our concierge team is available throughout the year to assist executives in managing their appointments, scripts, and specialist referrals.
Ford Health operates in every state in Australia without using “partner clinics” or outsourcing. Executives attending any of our national clinics can be assured that they will receive the same quality of service, tacit knowledge and data security regardless of what location they choose.

This detailed 1-hour assessment is done by a Ford Health medical practitioner and Exercise Physiologist in the workplace or at one of our national clinics.
If our team identifies any health risks, they will advise on what changes need to be made to eliminate or manage the risks. Additionally, they will determine if any further medical investigation is required.
Before conducting the assessment, you will complete either standard or extended blood pathology tests at one of our preferred providers at a location convenient to you.
