Ascension Via Christi opened a new concierge primary care clinic on Spirit AeroSystems campus, replacing the temporary off-campus site that opened July 2019. Its services are available for use by Spirit AeroSystems’ employees and their dependents, and retirees enrolled in Spirit AeroSystems’ medical plan.
Patient-centered, team-based care and enhanced access is at the center of the clinic’s design, which helped deliver favorable results in its first year, such as a noticeable reduction of ER visits by Spirit primary care clinic members.
“Primary care enhances our employee benefits by providing same or next-day appointments, certain prescriptions at no cost, and virtual access to a doctor 24/7,” said Justin Welner, Spirit AeroSystems Vice President, Human Resources, Corporate Administration and EHS. “We are pleased to take this next step as we partner with Ascension Via Christi to offer innovative, personalized, and comprehensive healthcare to our employees.”
The onsite clinic, located north of Spirit’s HR Service Center, offers primary care, lab, X-ray, Healthier You health coaching and navigation and medication dispensing services.
“Our patients love the space because it is very warm and inviting,” says Sheryl Beard, MD, one of the clinic’s primary care providers. “It is nice to have a building with our very own X-ray machine and the technology is state of the art. The first day went very well!"
