Workplace Health Services

Your employee's health is our business

At Providence we understand that your employees are your greatest asset. The Providence Workplace Health Services division is focused on helping them stay healthy, resilient and productive. Our ultimate goal is to help you reduce your overall health care costs while creating and maintaining a healthy workforce.

Worksite employee health clinics

Workplace Health offers several models for on-site employee clinics. Our on-site health clinics provide health care for your employees’ non-life-threatening medical conditions (work-related or not). Not only do on-site clinics offer care at a lower cost , but they reduce the amount of time your employees are away from work, and that improves your productivity.

Solutions:

  • A clinic fully staffed with a nurse practitioner and a medical assistant
  • Telehealth clinic offers web-based video conferencing with a nurse practitioner
  • Mobile health clinic
