Apple will open a network of medical clinics for employees and their families

Apple is preparing to launch a network of clinics AC Wellness Network, intended for employees of the company and their loved ones, told CNBC sources familiar with the situation. The organization has already published several vacancies describing the project.

The first clinics will begin working in the spring of 2018 in the city of Santa Clara, near the headquarters of Apple. One of the medical centers will appear on the company’s new campus

Together with doctors, AC Wellness Network is looking for employees who will promote a healthy lifestyle. In particular, the company needs designers who will design such programs.

 According to CNBC sources, Apple is going to test its new health services in its own clinics, which will later be available to a wide range of users. The company did not officially comment on the situation.

Apple CEO Tim Cook in February 2018 said that the company can make a “significant contribution” to the development of health. For example, Apple is already working with scientists from Stanford over a system that will allow Apple Watch to detect abnormalities in the pulse caused by diseases.

At the end of January 2018, Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan Chase decided to open their own company for the medical care of employees. Partners expect that this will help to simultaneously reduce health care costs and improve the quality of treatment.
