BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Premise Health, a leading worksite health and patient engagement company, announced today that it is continuing its national expansion with the opening of West Coast headquarters in Alameda, Calif. The company's corporate headquarters will remain in Brentwood, Tenn.
The expansion comes one year after Premise Health was formed through the merger of industry pioneers CHS Health Services and Take Care Employer Solutions, LLC, a former subsidiary of Walgreen Co. Today, Premise Health is a national leader managing more than 500 health centers across the United States on behalf of more than 200 organizations, ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to mid-size companies and municipalities.
"The decision to expand our corporate presence to the Bay Area is a proactive initiative to address the fast-evolving market on the West Coast," said Stuart Clark, CEO of Premise Health. "It advances our top priority of engaging our talent to develop innovative solutions to improve the cost and quality of employee healthcare. It also facilitates deeper support to our established customer base."
Premise Health provides employees and their families with personalized care through health and wellness centers located onsite or in close proximity to where they work - an approach that leads to a higher quality of care for patients and a lower cost of care for employers. The new West Coast location enables Premise Health to bring additional support to corporations based in the region, which include nearly 40 employers in California, Oregon and Washington.
"Today's announcement is great news for patients in the workplace. It ensures that Premise Health will stay at the forefront of designing and implementing innovative health center programming for companies here on the West Coast," said Archana Dubey, MD, Premise Health Global Medical Director for Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.
"Thanks to Premise Health, we've been able to ensure that each employee is able to spend as much time with our providers as needed, to care for all their medical needs. We're able to discuss comprehensive health goals with patients, and not just treat the issue at hand. It's having a positive impact on employees' health and quality of life."
