New Clinics

Just a quick update on a few new clinics which recently opened or are under serious consideration (and the trend continues with municipalities and other governmental units).  The city of Albany (Georgia) just opened their Employee Wellness Clinic in early December, staffed by a nurse Practitioner.

Birmingham (Alabama) Water Works will open a clinic, under a contract with HealthStat, in the first quarter of 2012.  They are projecting total savings of about $4,000,000 over a five-year period.

The Lee County school board (Florida) is exploring the concept of on-site clinics for their employees – up to potentially four sites (due to the size of the county and the employee population).  The board considered partnering with Lee Memorial Health System (which apparently has four clinics already for their own employees).  Ultimately, more planning must be done before a final model can be approved, but the County appears to be ready to take those steps.  (I think I sense an opportunity here for vendors.)
