Successful implementation of an employer health center will vary based on specific client needs. Additionally, the timeline for recruiting care team staff can vary based on the location of the proposed health center.  

For onsite health centers, budgeting for approximately 16 weeks after the project kickoff is recommended. Recruitment and vendor timelines for internet installation and procurement of medical furniture drive this timeline. 

Joining an existing Network or adding virtual care takes approximately 12 weeks. Adding specialty services like behavioral health or physical therapy takes a minimum of 12 weeks. This timeline is often dependent upon the time required to recruit the best provider.
