Apple is set to establish its own healthcare clinics for its 120,000 employees, CNBC has revealed. Similarly to the partnership between Berkshire Hathaway, JP Morgan and Amazon, Apple will begin supporting its employees by launching two new clinics in Santa Clara, California, with one situated close to Apple Park.

Named AC Wellness, the subsidiary is set to launch in the Spring, and has been described as “an independent medical practice dedicated to delivering compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population,” according to its new website.

Providing exceptional healthcare enabled by technology, Apple has stated that its centres will offer “a unique concierge-like healthcare experience for employees and their dependents.”

The company is advertising for medical professionals in a number of roles, as well unconventional roles such as Clinical Program Designers on Indeed and GlassDoor, whilst stressing the importance of driving patient engagement and the need for preventative care.

The company has also advertised for laboratory focused roles, signalling a move to undergo a onsite laboratory tests, on top of traditional methods of testing its consumer-focused services and products.

One core example is the Apple Watch, built with the support of Stanford School of Medicine to provide its heart monitoring capabilities. Additionally, the update on Apple’s iOS platform will enable users in the US to access their medical records through the Health app.

By improving the health of its employees, Apple will remain one of the most competitive technology companies globally, with an awareness that supporting employees through the provision of healthcare is becoming a significant recruitment driver for businesses.

Escalating healthcare costs, and an uncertain political climate surrounding the delivery of healthcare in the US will continue to drive new digital solutions, reshape traditional models of care and provide key solutions within the healthcare industry on a global scale.
