About Elevation Corporate Health
How our company came to be.
Our past blends with our future
Our history goes way back! Our evolution has been a remarkable journey. See how our company has been around for over 20+ years and counting. Our founders, Tom and Sandy, began working together in the corporate health industry in the late 1980’s.
MidAtlantic Corporate Health was organized
Realizing there was a shared vision, the new company focused regionally and continued Meagher and Kapp’s commitment to responding and developing corporate fitness and wellness needs.
Our client base expanded beyond
MountainWest Corporate Health was created to respond to clients west of the Mississippi. Both companies were held under Pioneer Health Group, LLC.
Pioneer Health Group continued to expand
Offered onsite and telephonic Coaching Programs, leveraged technology with wellness portals, and incorporated strong incentive management and rewards programs to encourage greater employee participation.
The former MidAtlantic, MountainWest and Pioneer Health Group were relaunched under one brand that says it all – Elevation Corporate Health.
