Employees will experience new healthcare benefit

Apple is opening medical clinics for its employees

Apple will open health clinics for its employees and their families this spring in Santa Clara County, Calif., where the company is based.

Without any fanfare, Apple has quietly rolled out a website trumpeting a new healthcare initiative called the AC Wellness Network that will service the company's 80,000 USA -based employees and their families.

"We believe in Trusting, Accessible Relationships with our patients, enabled by handsome and seamless technological experiences", it continues.

"The centers offer a unique concierge-like healthcare experience for employees and their dependents", according to the AC Wellness website.

The seven adults have the freedom to play outside, exercise, and use iPads at the hospital. Six of the Turpin children are minors, and they've been split among two foster homes.

Primary care physicians, acute care physicians and nurse practitioners are all being hired for the jobs. About 12,000 employees work at Apple's headquarters. As first reported by CNBC yesterday, Apple "quietly published a website, acwellness.com, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs". Apple is also looking for clinical program designers that can create programs to help prevent disease and promote healthy lifestyles for its employees.

As the cost of health insurance and medical care continues to rise, Apple has a unique solution to combat the increased expenses. The move, as told to news outlets by sources, comes soon after Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan have announced their own healthcare ambitions. Apple did not respond to a request for comment. These moves are an indictment of the state of the USA healthcare system - the tech companies are saying, "We can do it better and cheaper" - but the question is if the lessons they learn can be applied more broadly.

While Apple's healthcare plans gain interest, a Bloomberg report, citing sources, states the next iPhones will include a larger, high-end model as well as a lower-priced model, with fewer key new features.
