Senior living provider is the latest company to offer near-site primary care
CINCINNATI (August 1, 2019) – OurHealth, the nation’s leading provider of near-site primary care clinics for employers, today announces a partnership with Caring Place Healthcare Group.
OurHealth will provide a full suite of primary care services, including wellness screens, physicals, acute care and health coaching for the company’s 230 medical plan-enrolled employees and their covered dependents. Based in Cincinnati, Caring Place Healthcare Group operates six healthcare centers across the greater Cincinnati area specializing in short-term rehab, nursing care, Alzheimer’s care, senior living and other senior health services.
OurHealth entered the Cincinnati market in early 2019 with the launch of its Cincinnati MyClinic network, which includes MyClinic locations in Springdale, The Shoppes at Kings Mills and at Fourth and Main Streets in downtown Cincinnati. A fourth MyClinic location will open this fall in Green Township.
The MyClinic network significantly lowers the barrier to entry by allowing employers to gain immediate access to a network of primary care clinics that are conveniently located within a 10-minute drive of the employee’s home or office.
Caring Place Healthcare Group adds to OurHealth’s growing presence in the Cincinnati area. In April, OurHealth announced a partnership with Hamilton County, Ohio. Other Cincinnati clients include First Financial Bank, Rumpke and ADVICS.
“As a healthcare provider, we strive to help our residents live active and healthy lifestyles, so it makes perfect sense that we offer exceptional health benefits for our staff,” says Chase Kohn, Caring Place COO. “OurHealth is a great fit for our company and we couldn’t be more excited to offer this benefit.”
Employers are attracted to OurHealth’s model for three key reasons — improved access to care for their employees and their dependents, independence from any hospital system or network allowing for unbiased referrals and robust reporting capabilities that allow business owners to easily understand their return on investment.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Caring Place to our Cincinnati MyClinic network,” said Ben Evans, OurHealth CEO and co-founder. “We’re confident they’ll love the experience, and we can’t wait to make an immediate impact on their employees’ health, and of course their bottom line.”
OurHealth is on a mission to save employers $1 billion in healthcare costs, and to date has saved its clients more than $160 million. The company takes a patient-focused approach to care, including waiting room times of less than five minutes, appointments that average 20 to 40 minutes and a patient satisfaction score of 98 percent.
