The latest trend in workplace wellness is the creation of worksite health clinics. These clinics provide primary medical care and rehabilitation services to a company's employees and their dependents.
A new study reports the early results of some companies who created these onsite clinics for their workers.
Q: What's the Verdict on Onsite Health Clinics? A: They're Working
Over half the companies in the study reported using their onsite clinics to address chronic conditions for their employees. A great statistic to note is the 63% of respondents who reported a reduction in lost workdays.
When employers already spend so much time and money on health care coverage for their employees and dependents, it only makes sense that there is a trend towards creating onsite clinics.
