Businesses Open Their Own Medical Clinics For Better, Cheaper Health Care

Businesses Open Their Own Medical Clinics For Better, Cheaper Health Care

In light of rising health care costs, many US corporations are now providing their employees with in-house health care services.

Don Michael Acelar De Leon

As health care costs in the United States continue to rise, various companies are now looking into providing their own health facilities for employees as a cost-efficient alternative. This coming fall, Intel is slated to open medical clinics on its campuses in Hillsboro, Oregon, and in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, and hire a full roster of doctors and medical staff to care for its 9,043 employees who work there. The gesture is expected to bring down insurance costs, improve employee health, and stimulate productivity. Michelin North America has also built a medical clinic on its campus in Greenville, South Carolina. Hewlett-Packard opened a clinic in Palo Alto, California, while Sanofi-Aventis opened a clinic and pharmacy in Bridgewater, New Jersey.

Tami Graham, Intel’s director of global benefits design, shares thoughts on the initiative:

It’s the right thing to do. People have come in because it was convenient, and they’re finding life-threatening issues they wouldn’t have known about, and they’re taking action.
