We Opened A Health Clinic for Our Employees!

clinic room.jpgYou need a check-up with your doctor.  So, you wait on the phone to make an appointment that ends up getting scheduled several days later. You take time off work... drive across town... sit in the waiting room... see the doctor... and drive back to work.  Sometimes it can be a half-day adventure for even the simplest of doctor appointments. Sound familiar?

Lifetime knows that trying to figure out how to squeeze a medical appointment into work schedules and school schedules can be almost impossible sometimes.  So, we decided to make it more convenient for our employees and their families to get medical care.  How?  We opened the Lifetime Health Clinic right at our factory! 

Now our employees can make an appointment and simply walk a short distance to see a doctor right where they work.  And, they can bring their dependents, too.  Since the Lifetime Health Clinic is open only for Lifetime employees and their families, in most instances, we can even provide same-day, no wait visits!

Why was this important to Lifetime to offer as an employee benefit?  We know that the hassle of trying to see a doctor means care is sometimes skipped. So, the easier we can make it for our employees to see a doctor, hopefully, the more proactive they will be with their health care needs. After all, healthier employees mean happier and more productive employees. And, by providing this employee benefit of on-site medical care, we can help save our employees time and money.

The new 5,400-square-foot facility started seeing patients in late April and features a waiting room, three exam rooms, a treatment room for work-related traumas, and a physical therapy room.  Employees and their families can receive preventive care needs such as immunizations, well-baby and well-woman checkups, and chronic disease management. There is also a full, up-to-date lab to provide general health screenings. In addition, the Lifetime Health Clinic is able to provide urgent/non-emergency care and minor procedures. All work-related visits to the Lifetime Health Clinic are always free of charge, and all other visits require a small fee $10-$20 fee to cover the Clinic’s supplies -- a significant savings for our employees considering the average doctor office visit typically costs $100.

Fall Yard Sale Tips
Ive been to a lot of yard sales. At a recent one, I bought a 1921 replica Coca-Cola serving tray and made arrangements with a seller to pick up a refinished oak tool chest that I plan to use as a coffee table. After years of experience buying and selling, Ive also brought home what I call my three Ps for a successful yard sale: Planning, Presentation, and Pricing. Planning is crucial. If you sell it, they will come, right? Wrong. Run a classified ad in your local newspaper. Be sure to include popular and big-ticket items as well as the date, time, and location of your sale. Post a free listing at Craigslist.org also. Then make signs to put up at the nearest major intersections and other strategic spots to direct people to your sale. (Check with your local municipality or homeowners association first to make sure its okay to...
