Health care provider will add 60-plus jobs and five clinics beginning in January
OurHealth, a provider of on-site and near-site primary care clinics for businesses of all sizes, is establishing a new network of health clinics in Charlotte. Beginning January 1, 2016, OurHealth will open five MyClinic locations throughout the city of Charlotte. At these clinics, employees whose employers are part of the network can receive annual exams, immunizations, blood tests, generic drug prescriptions, acute care and treatment procedures.
“We are excited to enter the Charlotte market, a city that understands the importance of health and wellness, and has a progressive health care industry,” said Ben Evans, CEO of OurHealth. “Making health care convenient and affordable for employees makes for healthier and happier workers.”
The nearby clinical locations, complete with wellness services and programs, are a true fit for the city and its employers, and the mission to promote the health of citizens.
The estimated $25 million investment and 60-plus jobs associated with this expansion create a large economic development win for the market as well.
“Our Center City and community are enjoying a period of great momentum through the coordinated drive of our economic development teams,” said Michael J. Smith, president and CEO of Charlotte Center City Partners. “We are very pleased to welcome OurHealth to all parts of our city as they bring investment and jobs in a core industry.”
“Health care is the largest industry by employment in Charlotte-Mecklenburg,” said Bob Morgan, president and CEO of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. “Our citizens enjoy affordable, high-quality health care services. We welcome OurHealth and the new jobs, investment and services that they are bringing to our market.”
