---- — INDIANAPOLIS — Comlux USA, located on the grounds of the Indianapolis International Airport, has launched another benefit for its expanding workforce: An onsite, multi-employer health and wellness center, providing acute and primary medical care services, generic medications, and lab work to Comlux employees and their dependents that participate in the Comlux health-care plan.

“Comlux has made a significant investment in our employees and the community by offering access to our on-site Primary Care Health and Wellness Center,” Jerry Crone, Comlux CFO, said in a press release. “Our goal is to enhance quality of life by helping our employees and our partners become healthier while simultaneously driving down health-care costs. I see this as a win-win for all participating parties.”

More employers are seeking innovative solutions to enhance employees’ health and wellness while managing escalating health-care costs. Comlux’s Multi-Employer Activate Health Care Medical Center is at 6404 Turner Drive, Suite 100. As an employer-sponsored health and wellness center, the cost of medical services is paid by the employer (Comlux) to improve healthy employee lifestyles.

Working with Indianapolis-based benefits brokers Apex Benefits, an employee benefits advisory firm, Comlux has been looking for ways to save money on escalating health-care costs for employees and their families, while still providing exceptional medical and wellness services. The health and wellness center helps lessen the financial cost while empowering employees to work with their health-care team to reduce health risks and lower health-care costs over the long-term.

“Apex Benefits is pleased to once again partner with a community leader in Comlux USA,” Brian J. Elson, principal consultant for Apex Benefits, said. “Over the past 36 months, Comlux has made a substantial investment in central Indiana by creating hundreds of new jobs. The new Health and Wellness Center shows a continuing commitment to Comlux’s number one asset — their employees. By bringing on-site primary care to the grounds of the Indianapolis International Airport, numerous other employers in the immediate area could also benefit by partnering with Comlux. This concept of a near or onsite clinic works because proactive health and wellness drives quality of life while also reducing unnecessary health-care cost.”

Powered and staffed by Indianapolis based-Activate Healthcare, Comlux’s Health and Wellness Center provides 20- and 40-minute appointments with doctors to help build relationships that lead to improved care. Added benefits include convenience of care, online appointment scheduling, health coaching, a 24-hour nurse hotline, health risk assessments, biometric screenings, and electronic health records.

“Activate Healthcare has been selected by Comlux because of the unique and powerful ways that we engage associates in taking charge of their health and the powerful track record we have for hiring and retaining excellent medical staff,” Peter Dunn, principal with Activate Healthcare, said. “As a result of these factors, Activate Healthcare’s participation rates, patient satisfaction ratings, and savings have been exceptional. Activate Healthcare also has unique capabilities to help clients of all sizes share the benefits of full-time clinics. These benefits have enabled Activate Healthcare to open 20-plus clinics in the last three years. We are excited about making these services available near the airport and across Indianapolis and the state.”
