United Airlines opens free workplace health clinic at O'Hare

CHICAGO – United Airlines has announced the opening of the airline's new employee health clinic at O'Hare International Airport.

The clinic, managed by Walgreens, will serve a broad scope of employees' health needs, such as urgent care for routine illness, travel and other immunizations including flu shots, prepackaged medications, job-related physical training and pre-employment physicals, at no cost to employees.

Access to these and other health-care services is available to all United employees, including the more than 10,000 workers in the Chicago area.

"We're continuing to make significant investments in United, including investments in our co-workers," said United's Chairman, President and CEO Jeff Smisek. "This clinic will offer convenient health services at no charge to keep our co-workers feeling and performing well."


The 5,200-square-foot facility, located in the airport's Terminal 2 arrivals area, is the only one of its kind for any airline at O'Hare. United also offers health care clinics for its employees at its Cleveland, Houston, Guam and Newark/New York hubs, all managed by Walgreens..


"More employers are recognizing the benefits of worksite health centers and wellness programs to improve the overall health, satisfaction and productivity of their employees, while also reducing costs," said Walgreens President and CEO Greg Wasson. "This project brings together two companies with deep Chicago roots to make health and wellness a top priority."

Walgreens Employer Solutions Group operates more than 370 employer-based worksite health and wellness centers.
