Stress, long hours, and frequent travel can put leaders at risk for diseases that affect performance and productivity. Through prevention and early detection, the Executive Health Management Program can help executives maintain and enhance their health.
The multidisciplinary team at Spectrum Health Lakeland uses the latest clinical guidelines and technology to give each executive an in-depth and appropriate examination. Diagnostic tests and procedures follow best practices and evidence-based medicine, along with the recommendations from the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.
The Executive Health Management Program is a one-day visit at the Center for Outpatient Services in St. Joseph, Michigan. Members of our Executive Health Management Program team will personally guide you through each step of the process throughout the day. If you have questions, please feel free to email us at: SHLexecutivehealth@spectrumhealth.org

“Probably similar to most people, I am typically anxious about annual health exams. I don't know many people who are thrilled to go to the hospital to get poked and prodded, test your oxygen levels, or experience a stress test. All this being said, I do enjoy how Kim Keiser and the team at the Lakeland Executive Health Program always make me feel comfortable and able to enjoy the day. The team is friendly, attentive, and professional. I appreciate the little things they do such as sending several reminders of the upcoming appointment, and transitioning me from one group to the next through friendly introductions. The day includes great breakfast and lunch options, showing me that healthy food CAN taste good. At Whirlpool we have many options for executive health exams, including Mayo, Cleveland, and Chicago. I like Lakeland Health because it is close to home, friendly, and thorough. I always leave each year encouraged to eat a little better, exercise a little more, and with an overall focus of improving my health. Thank you Kim and the Lakeland Team!”Frank Gregor, Director, Global Sourcing, Whirlpool
“I was weighed, measured, prodded, and tested, and valued every bit of it. The Executive Health Program is delivered in a proficient and personalized manner, and provides real-time, useful, and meaningful information that allows me to make wise decisions about health, habits, and activities. The program is terrific, the professionals who administer it are even better.”Richard Dyer, President & CEO Edgewater Bank
“I’ve had the opportunity to participate in the Executive Health Program at Lakeland Health for several years, and am extremely impressed with the knowledge, professionalism, and assessment of my overall health. This thorough health review is completed locally at the Center for Outpatient Services (COPS), conveniently located just a few minutes from my home, and perfect for accommodating my busy schedule. I always look forward to the friendly and personal attention I receive from this program. The Executive Health Program is a first class assessment supported by an experienced and knowledgeable staff.”Jason Schmidt, Senior Project Manager, Whirlpool
"Not only is the Lakeland Executive Health Program convenient, it is also very effective and practical. Each year, the staff helps me improve in key areas of my overall health and wellness. They truly listen to me when I provide feedback, and by my next visit I usually see the impact of my observations on the overall program. What a blessing to have such excellent and responsive care so close to home!"Randal Schwalich, Principal Engineer, Whirlpool
“I have been receiving executive physicals for many years at both the Mayo Clinic and Chicago. When I moved to the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor area I decided to try the Executive Health Program so I could choose a local Primary Care Physician (PCP) for my health needs close to home. My experience with the Executive Health Program at Lakeland Health was every bit as thorough as both Mayo and Chicago. The professionalism from the staff and doctors was exceptional, and much more personal than my previous experience at the Mayo Clinic. I received great advice and care during my visit. The team did an excellent job making sure that I was comfortable, and followed up with me in a timely manner.”Ken Kleinhample, VP of Consumer and Appliance Care, Whirlpool
“For the past several years I have had the privilege and pleasure to utilize the Executive Health program right here in our very own twin cities area. Staff members go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and special on that one day of the year that you may typically dread. I look forward to spending the day with "my" nurse Kim every year!”Sue Zvonar, Senior Manager, Whirlpool
