Convenient clinic: Marvin Windows and Doors launches onsite clinic in Warroad, Minn.

WARROAD, Minn.—The hallway behind the human resources department at Marvin Windows and Doors‘ plant here appears to be an entrance to a factory floor.

But it also leads to a door to a much different environment, one that instantly feels like the sterile waiting room at a doctor’s office. Informational pamphlets were hanging on the wall, and an office worker greeted visitors from behind a desk.

The onsite clinic at Marvin’s Warroad production facility is open to the manufacturer’s employees and spouses, and provides health care services typically found off the campus but at a more convenient location. Employees can even stay clocked in during visits.

“We don’t want any barriers for people to use it,” said Alissa Partee, director of Total Rewards for the company. The “Total Rewards” moniker represents Marvin’s efforts to focus on a broader approach to employee compensation and benefits, including the onsite clinic.

The 1,764-square-foot clinic has seen more than 1,800 visits in the first six months after it opened in January. It’s run by Healthstat, a Charlotte, N.C.,-based workplace clinic management company, and includes a lab, hearing testing room, physical therapy space and medication dispensary room.
