IMWELL HEALTH AND RHEEM PARTNER FOR EMPLOYEE HEALTH
Fort Smith, Ark., December 5, 2016– IMWell Health, a Premise Health company, is proud to announce a partnership for employee health that will positively impact Rheem employees and their families. On December 5, IMWell Health opened a clinic serving employees on the Rheem campus in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The IMWell Health model uses acute health care visits to engage with patients and address long-term chronic health conditions.
Rheem employees who are health plan members will have access to the on-site clinic. Employees’ dependents who are health plan members will have access to IMWell Health multi-employer clinics. The clinics will see patients by appointment only. IMWell Health provides same-day or next-day appointments to patients with acute or urgent needs. Other appointments for wellness exams and chronic disease management are also available. All services provided are covered as a 100% health benefit and are completely free for health plan members.
“Rheem has been a leading employer in Fort Smith for many years,” said Eric Simpson, Chief Operating Officer of IMWell Health. “We are excited to partner with them to bring them the best health care the area has to offer.”
Sharen Reeder, Human Resources Director of Rheem said, “We are a passionate advocate of the benefits of preventive care and chronic condition management for our employees and their families. As we continue to elevate our health and wellness strategy, we want to remove as many barriers to quality care as possible. Opening the clinic is an important step towards accomplishing this goal.”
IMWell Health, a leader in the development of on-site and multi-employer primary care clinics, serves the employees and dependent family members of 50 companies throughout Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma. IMWell Health clinics offer the latest in medical technology to deliver first-rate primary care and exceptional convenience for patients.
