Humana opens health-and-wellness center with MinuteClinic healthcare services

LOUISVILLE, Ky. The Humana Center for Health and Well-Being opened here on May 10, bringing together multiple health-related services for Humana associates in one location, including healthcare services provided by CVS Caremark's MinuteClinic.

"By offering treatment in a convenient setting, we can work with Humana to help reduce healthcare expenses for its associates, improve well-being and health outcomes and reduce time spent away from Humana associates' families and the workplace," stated Andrew Sussman, M.D., president of MinuteClinic and SVP/associate chief medical officer of CVS Caremark.

A MinuteClinic nurse practitioner will offer preventative health screenings plus walk-in care for minor illnesses and injuries.

"Our associates and their families need a holistic health approach that is convenient and cost-effective," said Bruce Perkins, SVP healthcare delivery systems and clinical processes for Humana. "This exciting new well-being concept is designed to improve the health of and access to care for our associates through a combination of personalized services."

The center's health coaches from Humana's LifeSynch subsidiary will provide personalized support to help associates stay focused on achieving their health and fitness goals. Wellness coaching will help associates eat better, lose weight, manage stress and quit smoking, among other things.

An "Innovation Showcase" section of the center will give associates and other visitors an opportunity to explore Humana's new and pilot products and services.

The integration of data and services available at the center will help impact lifestyle changes for Humana associates (those who live in the Louisville area or are visiting from other parts of the country), their spouses, domestic partners and dependents, as well as Humana contractors.
