The Florida Department of Health in Manatee County is proud to bring together key community partners in a collective effort to improve the health and well-being of our local workforce while creating an overall culture of health in Manatee. Through this collaboration, we hope to empower local businesses to implement employee wellness programs and recognize employers who are committed to helping their workforce be as healthy as possible. 


The primary partners working with DOH-Manatee are the Manatee Chamber of Commerce, along with our local Workplace Wellness Taskforce, a group of health experts and individuals who are passionate about fostering healthy lifestyles in the community. 



As the sponsor of the Health Links program in Manatee County, Blake Medical Center is a vital partner in this effort to promote well-being and positively impact the health of the community. As a hospital, and one of the largest employers in Manatee County, we are committed to caring for the health and well-being of our community and our employees. Health Links is a great resource to help our hospital and our fellow Manatee County businesses ensure that we are all helping our employees live healthfully. A healthy workforce is a tremendous step towards a healthy community.
