The real-life impact of Healthstat clinics on the health of businesses and the lives of employees and their families.
"My time is very valuable to me. We’re out in the boonies at work, and I already have a 40-minute commute. So for me, the convenience of the clinic is really important. It’s high quality in terms of the care and the professionalism – not really any different from going to the doctor, except that it’s just one easy package, where going to the doctor would take a lot of time and be really out of the way."
"I saved well over $100 per month on my prescriptions by utilizing the clinic!! The people are polite and quick to help, love going there!"
"Our nurse practitioner is very friendly, very helpful and good at what she does. You can tell she loves her job. She cares about her patients. She knows my face and my name."
A different kind of healthcare delivery
Tonya’s family medical history frightened her. Diabetes, stroke, and a sister who died of a heart attack at only 42 years old. Tonya knew her own lifestyle was far from healthy and the risk of enduring the same outcome as her relatives was high. Her company offered a health insurance discount if she would complete an annual wellness questionnaire to measure key health indicators such as weight, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol. And every year, as her weight crept up, the rest of her numbers crept up, too.
But enough was enough and Tonya was determined to take back control of her health before it took control of her. When she first met Nicole, the nurse practitioner at her Healthstat clinic, Tonya expected to hear the familiar refrain “diet and exercise.” Nicole told her that alright, but then Nichole did something Tonya didn’t expect—she truly listened. She also provided tools that would help Tonya make healthy life choices. Together, they made small changes and tracked progress. Before she met Nicole and started her regular Healthstat clinic visits, Tonya struggled for 20 years to find something that would “stick.” Now 55 pounds lighter, Tonya is doing what she grappled with for decades...living a healthier life. And Nicole has been with her every step of the way.
