Towers Watson's 2012 survey of employers that have established or are planning to establish onsite health centers provides up-to-the-minute insights on how these centers are perceived and used. Overall, both the employers and employees throughout the organization continue to view centers positively.

With employee health and productivity a primary concern for employers looking to control costs, we believe the growth of Onsite Health Centers will continue. Health care reform will only add to this trend as employers aim to manage health care costs in line with the goals of the federal law. Onsite health centers can help them combine the law's increased focus on quality with information technology to drive patient satisfaction and positive health outcomes.
