Of all the assets executives, trustees and officers oversee, their health is the most precious, and sometimes their least considered. At Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, our Executive Health and Physical Program is designed to make it easy for business leaders to continue performing well and feeling well – for themselves, their families, their businesses and their employees. Executives benefit from our efficient and personalized approach to evaluation and recommendations about their health, and from knowing that they are at one of the world’s leading health care providers.

Why Brigham and Women’s Hospital
Brigham and Women’s is a destination for advanced care for men and women throughout the US and from over 120 countries worldwide. Rated a top hospital in the country by US News & World Report, we’ve been on the Best Hospitals list for 24 consecutive years.
As a major research hospital – we are ranked second in the country among National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded hospitals – the Brigham is a leader in evidence-based medicine, developing guidelines followed around the world in preventing, diagnosing and treating health conditions. We bring this same evidence-based discipline to our Executive Health and Physical Program. All the physicians in our Executive Health and Physical Program are also on the faculty of Harvard Medical School.
Why the Brigham Executive Health and Physical Program Is a Good Fit
From your first contact with our team, our physicians and staff will develop a personalized program at the highest level of care and service.
Customized: Our Program is tailored to the individual executive’s needs and health goals – based on age, gender, personal medical history, family history and personal risk factors.
Efficient: Our streamlined approach to executive health care starts before arrival on our campus. A comprehensive pre-visit phone or video assessment takes place with a senior Brigham physician. Our team can then prepare for the Executive’s schedule on the day of their visit – both their medical schedule and any assistance with travel and arrival.
Comprehensive: Based on this assessment, a personalized Executive Physical is designed for your visit, including diagnostic tests that may be needed. You will leave the visit with a summary of test results and recommendations, and contact information for your providers. A full report will be sent to your physician(s) should you wish. In addition, the Brigham offers a state-of-the-art online portal, called Patient Gateway, which also provides test results and facilitates communication with physicians.
Flexible: In addition to the core physical, executives have the option of additional services, such as: nutrition counseling, vision and hearing tests, and/or well being and life satisfaction counseling. Please let us know if there are additional services that you are interested in that are not listed.

Additional Executive Health Offerings
Working with a registered dietitian can be a great way to make sure that you are on track or to kick start meeting a new dietary goal. Your initial in-person visit with our registered dietitian will include a full nutrition assessment, including a calorie, vitamin, mineral and macronutrient analysis of a three-day diet record; fat-mass and lean-mass body testing; calorie and macronutrient recommendations for client’s goals; and need for any vitamin/mineral supplementation. Further, lifestyle history will be assessed such as work schedule, exercise and sleep patterns, and stress levels to provide the best evidence-based recommendations for nutrition that achieve your goals and work with your lifestyle needs.
Working with a clinical exercise physiologist is the gold standard for individuals who want help creating the ultimate exercise program to meet their personal goals. Together with you, a lifestyle enhancement program is devised, consisting of cardiovascular conditioning, overall body strengthening with different forms of resistance exercises and stretching with stress relieving techniques. This program that you and your exercise physiologist co-develop will be uniquely designed to help you achieve your personal fitness and health goals.
Wellbeing and Lifestyle Assessment:
This program is comprised of an in-depth evaluation of the degree of satisfaction of your life experience.

Hearing loss can have impacts on communication and overall quality of life. In the Brigham and Women’s Otolaryngology Department, a highly trained audiologist can use a variety of advanced tests to assess your hearing. These tests determine the degree and type of hearing loss.
Coordinated with our colleagues at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, at its Longwood campus, this exam provides a full spectrum of integrated eye care.
The Whole Genome Predispositional Screening Module is a genome screening program that includes analysis and interpretation of 1,691 genes that have well-established disease associations, including 56 ACMG-designated medically-actionable genes. Carrier status for certain genetic diseases and results relevant to certain medications will also be reported. The program offers state-of-the-art CLIA genome sequencing (via Illumina, a world leader), in depth family history analysis, and return of results directly via video link with a BWH physician. The cost for the package includes sequencing, interpretation, and return of results. This is a great opportunity to receive state-of-the-art information on medically-relevant aspects of your genome.
