Apple's health clinic manager opens first San Francisco facility

Crossover Health, which contracts with companies like Apple to provide on-site healthcare services for employees, will open its first brick-and-mortar health center in San Francisco Oct. 25, according to BisNow.

The health center will mark Crossover Health's eighth location in the Bay Area and will serve as a healthcare facility for multiple employers in the city. Crossover Health signed the lease for the property last winter and began construction on the facility earlier this year.

The company has 20 locations nationwide.

"Launching the SOMA location represents another step in our movement to fundamentally change the way healthcare is practiced, delivered and experienced," Crossover CEO and co-founder Scott Shreeve, MD, said in a statement obtained by BisNow. "We are excited to partner with health activist employers that share our mission and help them deliver exceptional employee care experiences without the barriers of cost, access and quality."

Crossover Health's retail locations provide primary care services, as well as physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, behavioral health, health coaching and fitness services, the report states. The difference between Crossover's locations and traditional healthcare facilities is that at Crossover, patients have access to many of the services they need in one facility, instead of traveling between different physicians and pharmacies to obtain care or treatment.

The company can also provide its partner employers with aggregate information about employees' visits, treatments and other health programs, like nutrition coaching and weight management.

Several larger organizations like Apple and Amazon have created on-site health clinics for their employees as an alternative to traditional healthcare facilities. For example, Apple said in February it was launching a subsidiary called AC Wellness to serve employees and their families. The tech giant recruited employees from Crossover Health, which previously ran the company's on-site Bay Area clinics, and continues to run its clinics in other locations.
