Having a medical clinic at your workplace probably seems too good to be true –but it’s not! In fact, you can have an onsite clinic, which is fantastic for employees and employers. U.S. HealthWorks understands the cost of employee care and loss of productivity are just a few concerns that employers have. But with the help of an onsite clinic, those worries will be all in the past.
Three great reasons for onsite clinic are:
1. Lower costs
Providing healthcare for your employees can be rather expensive. But when it comes to an onsite clinic, costs actually go down. According to the Towers Watson 2012 Onsite Health Center Survey, this was the number two reason why employers got onsite clinics. One reason costs would be lowered is because an onsite nurse would identify a problem before it got too serious. There are many visits to specialists, hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and more that could be avoided with an onsite clinic making it extremely cost effective.
2. More Productivity
According to the Tower Watson 2012 Onsite Health Center Survey, this was the number one reason why companies wanted an onsite clinic. One reason productivity is boosted with worksite clinics is because people can fit treatment into their schedule much easier than an offsite facility.
People applying for positions find the idea of a worksite clinic very appealing. Someone who is looking for a job may be more likely to take a position with a company that makes employee’s health a priority. Having an onsite clinic really shows applicants that they will always be in good care. Not to mention, employees who already hold a position at a company that has an onsite clinic are more likely to stay.
If you are interested in an onsite clinic for your company, U.S HealthWorks is happy to explain all the benefits that come with it. Get ready to reduce absenteeism, identify health conditions earlier, reduce offsite doctor visits, attract and retain employees, save money, and so much more with the help of an onsite clinic.
