Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) January 23, 2012 -- Allstate Insurance Co. (NYSE: ALL) today announced the opening of a state-of-the-art onsite medical facility for employees and their families. The Allstate Wellness Center is the latest addition to the company's range of services that support the wellbeing of its employees and their families.
The new facility, which features a physician, a nurse practitioner, a physical therapist and a health coach, will give Allstate employees - as well as their family members and Allstate retirees - a setting where they can receive medical care and health information that encourage long-term wellbeing.
"Our goal is to build a culture that embraces and encourages our employees' pursuit of wellbeing in all aspects of their life," said Catherine Winn, vice president, Human Resources. "The Wellness Center is an innovative facility that provides onsite medical care while offering employees an opportunity to save on rising health care costs."
Allstate's Wellness Center offers an innovative, holistic approach to medical care, offering physical examinations, vaccinations and immunizations, wellness counseling, physical therapy, blood pressure checks, laboratory services and screenings. The facility will also include a pharmacy that will open later this spring.
All employees enrolled in a company-sponsored self insured medical plan are eligible to receive preventive care at the Wellness Center at no cost. Depending on their medical insurance coverage, non-preventive care can be received for as little as a $10 co-payment.
The Center joins a wide selection of offerings designed to encourage health and wellbeing for company employees. Allstate's Energy For Life workshop, its Destination: You walking program, wellness coaching and subsidized, more nutritious meals in the company cafeterias all contribute to employees' overall wellbeing. A second wellness center is scheduled to open at Allstate's campus in Irving, Texas this summer.
