5 Benefits of an Onsite Employee Health and Wellness Center

Posted by Neopath Health on Aug 16, 2022 9:00:00 AM

We all know an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But even the most committed among us may put off scheduling health care appointments for various reasons - enter the option of an onsite employee health and wellness center.  

For starters, health care is expensive, and costs continue to go up. (PwC's Health Research Institute projected a 6.5% medical cost trend in 2022.) Health insurance is a complex process and can require tremendous patience to navigate. Even after you’re insured, can be weeks before a primary care physician has an opening in their schedule. After all that, you may only get a few minutes with a doctor already juggling multiple patients in a busy family clinic. 

Not an ideal set of circumstances, especially if you have a chronic condition like high blood pressure, diabetes or anxiety.

Stressors like these have some mid-size companies considering whether to build their own onsite clinic for employees. While that may seem like a huge undertaking, it’s more common - and easier- than one might think. Partners like NeoPath work closely with companies like yours to create a game plan that will help you tackle everything from benefits structure, ownership structure, culture, retention strategy, physical space, and more.

Is cost management one of the primary benefits of this approach? Sure. Companies need to manage costs to continue offering their employees comprehensive health coverage. But the benefits of an onsite employee health and wellness center don’t end with costs. Let’s look at how employees, providers, and employers all benefit from onsite care.
