PRINCETON — Three local businesses now have a health clinic opened in Princeton specifically for their employees.
Princeton Wellness Center, opened for The ARC of Gibson County, Highway Machine Corporation and A&B Contractors, hosted a ribbon-cutting event Wednesday afternoon with representatives from all three organizations.
The clinic was opened through Tri-State Community Clinics and will provide primary care services to the employees and their families of those three businesses.
Lisa Gish, the director of clinic operations, said though it is starting with these three organizations, there is room for potential growth.
Gish said this sort of endeavor helps companies save on employee healthcare costs and can be a recruitment and retention tool as well. The clinic focuses on health and wellness, so it can help employees limit their risk factors.
The clinic currently has a two-person staff, one nurse and one nurse practitioner. It will be open three days a week and hours will vary by day.
Gish said the goal is to start out at a reasonable point and then look to grow.
