Following Amazon’s lead, Apple announced plans to create its own primary in-house clinics and health service for employees, called AC Wellness, according to the Guardian.
Apple’s AC Wellness Network is designed to serve the company’s employees and their families and provide “compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population”.
Two such centres are set for a spring opening in the vicinity of Cupertino, in Santa Clara County, near the Apple Park and Infinite Loop headquarters. According to the company, they will provide a “unique concierge-like healthcare experience” that is “enabled by technology”.
Currently, Apple is looking to fill positions such as primary and acute care physicians, physical therapists, nurses and other. Appropriately, the job descriptions include the requirement for prospective employees to show “enthusiasm for new methods of care delivery using technology”.
Apple has more than 120,000 employees.
