Onsite health clinics in the workplace are not a new concept, but they are definitely growing in popularity. Cost is the primary factor, but millennials in particular love the convenience and time saved when seeing a doctor onsite.
On-site, workplace clinics are one method to control today's healthcare costs. These clinics provide preventive care and treatment to employees at their place of employment, thus increasing their attendance at work. On-site clinics are particularly beneficial for decreasing the number of off-site, health-related, patient care visits.
On-site workplace clinics used to be primarily focused on patching up people who got injured on the job. Then companies added primary care and started emphasizing preventive screenings and other “wellness” services. Now, some big employers are beefing up their clinic offerings further with a host of add-ons, including physical therapy, dental and vision exams, mental health counseling and even acupuncture and massage.
Employers say these clinics provide primary and preventive care, and encourage exercise, thus keeping workers healthier, reducing absenteeism and cutting benefit costs. They say the on-site centers reduce the amount of time workers spend away from work visiting off-site healthcare providers. In addition, the centers can help companies identify occupational health and safety risks, such as poorly designed workstations that result in back and neck problems.
