Illi­nois hos­pi­tal, in­surer to open em­ployee clinic

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Maria Castel­lucci

St. John’s Hos­pi­tal in Spring­field, Ill., and Ho­race Mann Ed­u­ca­tors Corp., a na­tional in­sur­ance com­pany, have teamed up with HSHS Med­i­cal Group to open an em­ployer-spon­sored health clinic in Spring­field.

St. John’s and Ho­race Mann are self­in­sured. Employees of each or­ga­ni­za­tion must use their re­spec­tive em­ployer’s plan at the clinic. The clinic will also be avail­able to employees’ de­pen­dents.

Melinda Clark, CEO of HSHS Med­i­cal Group, said the part­ner­ship with Ho­race Mann was ap­peal­ing, since St. John’s and Ho­race Mann are sig­nif­i­cant Spring­field em­ploy­ers. St. John’s, a 430bed hos­pi­tal, em­ploys nearly 3,000 area res­i­dents, while Ho­race Mann has ap­prox­i­mately 1,000 employees in its Spring­field of­fice, 800 of which are en­rolled in Ho­race Mann health plans. St. John’s and Ho­race Mann are less than a block from each other and the clinic is be­ing built be­tween them.

The clinic is ex­pected to open in early 2016.
