On-site and near-site health centers have been shown to improve employee health and well-being, increase access to quality health care, enhance employee productivity, reduce health care costs, and improve employee recruitment and retention. More than half (54%) of large employers have an on-site health center in at least one of their larger sites in 2018, and another 11% are considering doing so by 2020 (Figure 1).
Employers may also promote the use of convenience care or retail clinics, which are walk-in health care clinics in a retail store, supermarket or pharmacy that treats uncomplicated minor illnesses. They are popular among consumers due to their accessibility, extended hours and lower costs than urgent care centers or emergency rooms.
