Johns Hopkins HealthCare Solutions has signed an agreement with GE Aviation to offer an onsite wellness program to 2,700 employees at a manufacturing facility the company has in Massachusetts.
Johns Hopkins will open a center staffed by a nurse practitioner as part of the agreement. The center will provide occupational health and urgent care services as well as help with employee wellness programs.
Johns Hopkins has operated wellness centers for more than 20 years and has locations at more than 50 corporate sites that serve tens of thousands of employees. The centers help companies and their employees by reducing out-of-pocket medical expenses, transportation costs and out-of-work time, Hopkins said.
GE Aviation makes jet engines at the plant in Lynn, Mass., north of Boston, where General Electric is relocating its headquarteres from Connecticut.
