Apple Inc. (AAPL) Opening Primary Care Clinics For Its Own Employees

The medical care clinic is going to be named "AC Wellness" and it will offer services towards Apple employees and their families.

Numerous job listings suggest the AC Wellness clinics will be full-service facilities providing "unique concierge-like healthcare experience for employees and their dependents".

"AC Wellness Network believes that having trusting, accessible relationships with our patients, enabled by technology, promotes high-quality care and a unique patient experience", the company wrote on the webpage. Though it's featured prominently in the CNBC story, it's unclear where the company promises the "world's best health care experience", but it repeatedly references "exceptional health outcomes" on its web site and recruiting pages.

The clinics, named AC Wellness, will provide "compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population" through the use of technology and health-monitoring devices. It has also looked into ways its Apple Watch could have medical applications, like detecting irregular heartbeats in wearers. Currently, Apple has one Wellness Center in its headquarters in Cupertino that employs a handful of doctors, chiropractors, dietitians, and physical therapists.

The tech company is planning on opening wellness clinics for its roughly 123,000 employees worldwide.

According to TheVerge, the services offered by Apple's new medical care clinic will be available only to people who work in the Spaceship. Because of this, the company is also looking for "designers" who can help put together programs to help promoted healthy living. There are very few companies with the means to launch their own private medical systems, so it's not surprising that among the first to do it are Amazon and Apple. Amazon partnered with Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan to develop a cost-effective way to improve employee healthcare for the companies' combined 1 million employees.
