On-site Medical Clinics Continue to Interest Employers

Embracing the belief that providing on-site medical care can keep employees healthy and productive and save money, more and more employers are opening their own state-of-the-art health centers.

Mercer reports that, nationally, 15% of employers with more than 500 employees have health centers, up 4 percentage points from last year. The larger the employer the more likely they are to have on-site centers.

These centers are moving beyond urgent, now offering preventive services, such as mammograms and prostate screenings , pharmacies, allergy shots, physicals, and some clinics are even offering dental services.

Qualcomm reports reduced emergency room visits, hospitalizations and medical claims since having its on-site clinics.

Workers like the convenience of having medical services close at hand. It saves them a lot of time and many as one employee put it "I don't go to outside doctors anymore".
