At work healthcare facilities offer convenience

March 9, 2018

A recent survey found a third of companies now offer some form of health services on site, according to an article on the ABC30 website.

"Having an onsite clinic really gives them a great opportunity to quickly get to the service they need or pick up the drug or see the doctor or nurse and then get back to work," said Larry Boress of the National Association of Worksite Health Centers.

Services can range from a single room where employees can check their vitals and Skype in to an on-call doctor, or to elaborate facilities such as the one at PG&E, which can offer services ranging from acute care to acupuncture and even physical therapy.

"We don't want them spending time traveling or waiting for health care. We want them to get the right healthcare at the right time," said Angela Lombardi, PG&E spokesperson.
