Northwell Health, New York state’s largest health care provider and private employer, has joined forces with Canyon Ranch, the premier integrative wellness brand, to expand its existing health and wellness initiatives. The organizations share a common goal of enhancing the lives and wellbeing of their respective clients, and plan for this partnership to expand their reach of wellness, ensuring opportunities for individuals to live younger longer.

First the partnership plans to create a cooperative culture for health and wellness across the New York metropolitan area, starting with resiliency training for Northwell clinicians designed by Canyon Ranch Wellness Architects, the company's team of experts, focused on various self-care topics such as wellness, prevention, and lifestyle behavior changes. 

“As a trailblazer in integrative wellness for four decades, our affiliation with Northwell Health is testimony to our commitment to continue innovating with trusted experts,” says Susan E.
