In 2010, the district opened the first of two HISD Employee Health & Wellness Centers, one at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center and another at Attucks Middle School.
The Houston Independent School District has been named one of the top 25 healthiest employers in Houston, as rated by the Houston Business Journal. Rankings of the top 25 businesses will be announced at the first annual Houston’s Healthiest Employers Symposium on March 1.
“We’re proud to be one of Houston’s healthiest employers,” said Benefits General Manager Brad Bailey, “and we remain committed to providing our employees with access to high-quality wellness programs so they have the very best opportunities to stay healthy and enjoy life.”

1. Culture and Leadership Commitment
2. Foundational Components
3. Strategic Planning
4. Communication and Marketing
5. Programming and Interventions
