Harris Teeter Selects OurHealth for Near-Site Clinic Solution

Supermarket chain is latest employer to join the Charlotte MyClinic network

CHARLOTTE (May 21, 2019) – OurHealth, the nation’s leading provider of near-site primary care clinics for employers, today announced a partnership with supermarket chain Harris Teeter.

OurHealth will provide a full suite of primary care services, including wellness screens, physicals, acute care and health coaching for the company’s more than 2,500 Charlotte-area associates and their covered dependents. Based in Matthews, North Carolina, Harris Teeter operates over 230 grocery stores and 14 fuel centers across the South Atlantic states.

OurHealth entered the Charlotte market in January 2016 with its system of industry-leading near-site clinics, called the MyClinic network, and today has five convenient locations around the city: Uptown, Tower Place, Northlake, Wilkinson Boulevard and Albemarle Crossing. The partnership with Harris Teeter adds to OurHealth’s growing client roster, which includes the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and Belk Department Stores.

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. OurHealth’s MyClinic network includes seven clinics in Indianapolis and three in Cincinnati.

“Being an incredible place to work and shop starts with having associates who feel their best and provide world class service to our shoppers,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “Being healthy is a big part of that equation, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our valued associates primary care through OurHealth.”

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 excited to welcome Harris Teeter to our growing Charlotte MyClinic network,” said Ben Evans, OurHealth CEO and co-founder. “Savvy businesses are actively working to make an immediate impact on their health spending, and our model has proven an effective solution for our Charlotte partners.”

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.

In 2018, OurHealth patients lost a combined 40,000 pounds and 32,000 points of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. OurHealth clients enjoy an average savings of 17 percent on health plan costs through better management of chronic conditions, ER avoidance and reduced lab and drug costs. OurHealth clients include a wide range of employers of all sizes and industries, including the City of Indianapolis, Anthem, First Financial Bank, CNO Financial Group and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.
