Apple launches AC Wellness subsidiary to deliver healthcare for its employees

Apple is launching a group of medical clinics called AC Wellness to deliver the "world's best healthcare experience" to its employees and their families, CNBC reports. The initiative includes two clinics in Santa Clara County, California, so far.

Apple has published a website, acwellness.com, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs including primary care doctor, exercise coach, and care navigator, as well as a phlebotomist to administer lab tests on-site. The site is described as “an independent medical practice dedicated to delivering compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population.”

Info on the website also says: 

AC Wellness Network believes that having trusting, accessible relationships with our patients, enabled by technology, promotes high-quality care and a unique patient experience.

This is fostered by an environment of continuous learning and teamwork, which in turn allows us to work with our patients to achieve exceptional health outcomes. The centers offer a unique concierge-like healthcare experience for employees and their dependents.

Several of the job listings on Apple's site describe AC Wellness as a "subsidiary of Apple, Inc.” It will be interesting to see if the company plans to expand the program for others besides its employees.
