HealthSolutions 

Taking proper steps to create a safe and healthy working environment not only protects employees, it also protects employers. With Sarasota Memorial’s HealthSolutions, you can create an on-site employee health clinic at your business, use our vast network of healthcare centers, or develop a customized plan that combines the two options. HealthSolutions’ flexible plans allow businesses to design an employee-health blueprint that meets their company’s unique needs, no matter the industry. Your employees will always have easy access to the best primary and emergency healthcare, and your company will have the most cost-effective solution for workforce health and wellness.

On-site Solutions

  • Flu shots
  • Biometric screenings (cholesterol, blood sugar, weight and BMI, exercise assessments)
  • Disease and lifestyle management (diabetes, high blood pressure, help to stop smoking, obesity)

HealthDirect 

With more than 5,000 employees, Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is one of Sarasota County’s largest employers. Truven Health Analytics and the U.S. News & World Report both recently named SMH one of the top hospitals in nation, and Becker’s Hospital Review recognized SMH as one of the “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.” We know what it takes to sustain a successful, local business. 

Integral to that success is our custom, provider-sponsored health plan, which significantly lowered the costs of providing healthcare for our thousands of employees. Through HealthDirect services, Sarasota Memorial is now offering our provider-based health management plan to other local businesses that are looking for a smarter alternative to the traditional health plans that are on the market.  

HealthDirect is a turn-key program that allows businesses to gain control over their employee-health expenses and simplifies the often-complicated processes of managing a corporate health and wellness program. HealthDirect corporate partners enjoy an extensive network of Sarasota Memorial providers and resources, an integrated medical management team that’s locally based and employed by Sarasota Memorial, and a simple, yet effective health plan. HealthDirect’s unique package of services allows you to invest in your employees’ health and wellness, while lowering your group’s healthcare costs.

Why choose SMH Corporate Health? 

Flexible, customizable plans: When it comes to corporate wellness programs, one size does not fit all. Sarasota Memorial Corporate Health specialists will work with you to create a solution that matches your company’s unique medical and wellness demands, so you can capitalize on your company’s greatest asset: your employees. 

Local plan management; local care: SMH Corporate Health is the only local option for comprehensive workforce wellness services that cover prevention, treatment and claims management. While there are large, national companies that market similar services, none are invested in the same local community as your business; none can offer a local provider network; and none care about your employees as we do. (Afterall, they are our neighbors and our patients, too.) 

Large, convenient care network: With SMH’s network of more than 900 physicians, six urgent care centers and 10 outpatient campuses, your employees will enjoy convenient access to the area’s largest healthcare system and 24/7 access to board-certified physicians. 

Your Employee Health Partner 

Outsourcing your health and wellness services allows you to focus solely on your business, and leaves employee healthcare and health insurance in the hands of the experts.  Are you ready to connect with a local corporate-health partner that understands your business’ needs and delivers comprehensive services that save time and money?
