FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Salt Lake City becomes 7th market with one-of-a-kind employer health center solution
INDIANAPOLIS – Aug. 8, 2022 – Marathon Health, a national leader in employer health solutions for companies of all sizes, today announces the opening of its newest Network in Salt Lake City. The first health center, located in Draper Peaks, opens this month with more locations to follow from Ogden to Provo. Salt Lake City becomes the 7th market to provide this unique offering to local employers, joining Indianapolis; Charlotte, N.C.; Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Las Vegas and Orlando, Fla.
“We love partnering with employers to design and deliver a totally different healthcare experience,” said Jeff Wells, MD, CEO and co-founder of Marathon Health. “Our ability to flex and implement a solution that meets each employer’s unique needs is critical, especially now as they face once-in-a-generation shifts in workplace culture.”
Longtime client CHG Healthcare, based in Midvale, will expand its onsite health center benefit to include Network access for all employees and their dependents. “We’re thrilled to offer another innovative solution that offers flexibility and choice to the people of CHG,” said Anne Hopkins, Director of People & Operations, benefits and wellness for CHG Healthcare. “The Network center will provide extended hours so that our people and their families have another option for free healthcare in our hybrid work environment. It’s one more way we’re continuing to pivot and promote our belief that our people should have access and choice to a broad range of benefits based on personal need. Over the past 10 years, our partnership with Marathon Health has allowed us to continue to build better healthcare for our people.”
Onsite health centers, which operate at an employer’s place of business, are a great solution when there is a large concentration of employees in one place. For those with a hybrid workforce or with smaller concentrations across multiple offices, the Marathon Health Network is a great alternative. Network centers are located in popular shopping centers where the employees and their families live, work and shop. That convenient access drives higher engagement, which in turn drives healthier behaviors and financial savings for the employee and the employer. This care model also reduces the barrier to entry for employers by providing a turnkey health solution staffed with world-class providers, behavioral health counselors, onsite medications and labs, health coaches and incentive programming.
Marathon Health delivers an independent primary care model that gives providers extra time to build relationships with their patients and remains free of any hospital or health system partnerships. This unique model includes multichannel access – virtual or in person – which is critical in delivering true primary care. Marathon Health’s data-driven approach also gives employers comprehensive reporting and analytics to demonstrate the value of improvements and overall cost of care.
Marathon Health patients save their employers $2,000 on average annually and report better management of chronic conditions and their overall health. To date, Marathon Health has saved its clients more than $1 billion in healthcare costs. With more than 250 onsite, Network and virtual health centers across the United States, Marathon Health is fulfilling a mission to be the most trusted healthcare solution for employers nationwide.
Local employers, benefit consultants and healthcare professionals are invited to join us for the grand opening event of our Draper Peaks location at 131 East 12300 S. Unit R400 in Draper on August 23, 2022, from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. Tour the health center, meet the care team, and learn more about providing this cost-saving benefit for your employees. Register for the grand opening!
