Independence School District to offer employee health clinic

Friday, October 5, 2012 | 3:58 p.m. CDT

INDEPENDENCE — A suburban Kansas City school district is working to keep teachers healthy with an on-site employee health clinic.

The Independence School District is planning an open house Monday to show off the clinic. The district claims it's the only one between Houston and Terre Haute, Ind., offering the free benefit to employees.

The clinic won't just help employees. It's also expected to save the district about a million dollars a year in insurance premiums.

The district also hopes it will lead to more days of uninterrupted education for students and fewer days with substitute teachers.

The clinic will be operated and managed by Healthstat Inc.
