Amazon isn’t the only US tech giant aiming to upend health care. Apple is now planning to launch its own independent medical clinics called AC Wellness, which will be “dedicated to delivering compassionate, effective healthcare” to its employees.
The iPhone maker is planning to open AC Wellness this spring in Santa Clara County, Calif., where it’s headquartered, according to a new website for the initiative.
“AC Wellness Network believes that having trusting, accessible relationships with our patients, enabled by technology, promotes high-quality care and a unique patient experience,” Apple wrote on its AC Wellness website. “The centers offer a unique concierge-like healthcare experience for employees and their dependents.”
As it prepares to launch the new centers, Apple has a number of positions to fill. The company is seeking primary and acute care physicians, a nurse practitioner, nurse coordinator, clinical exercise coach, and medical professionals for several other roles.
