BASi employees take advantage of on-site clinic

Jun 27, 2012

A company in the Purdue Research Park hopes to cut down on health care costs with an on-site wellness clinic.

BASi opened its 1,800 square foot health center in March. Senior Vice President of Human Resources Lina Reeves-Kerner says participation by employees has been growing steadily since then with 78% of them using it in April.

"We see it as the employees are receptive to the clinic and we think more will participate once they get more comfortable with the clinic."

A pharmaceutical development company is adding to its Purdue Research Park facility.

BASi is building an 1,800 square foot health and wellness center on site to help employees stay healthy and cut costs.  Dependents of staff members also will have access to services there.

Construction on the $200,000 project started Monday (Nov. 21) and Senior Vice President of Human Resources Lina Reeves-Kerner says it should open in January.  She says the facility with three exam rooms, a lab, and pharmacy will save BASi about $250,000 annually.
