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.
