"A real benefit of having a nurse on site is having a knowledgeable, trained person to help with employee health care decisions. I feel confident that I am saving the company money. An onsite nurse provides treatment and can reduce the number of unnecessary trips to the ER or Urgent Care."

"I enjoy interacting with the employees and being the person they can talk to about any health concern or personal issue."
