Companies offering on-site healthcare
Philadelphia Inquirer, September 3, 2008
Like many other companies, Philadelphia-based Cardone Industries Inc. was struggling with the cost of its workers' healthcare.
Many of its 4,000 employees lacked primary-care doctors. Rather than deal with problems early, they'd wait until they were really sick, then head for emergency rooms. In addition, a small but growing number of workers was turning down the company's health insurance plan because it was too expensive. To help, Cardone and Holy Redeemer Health System broke ground on a 2,500-square-foot health center for Cardone employees and their families that will be staffed by Holy Redeemer doctors. Workers who use the center will have a lower insurance co-payment and, those who sign up for Cardone's new Exclusive Provider Organization will pay less for their insurance.
