Spirit opens primary health center for Oklahoma employees

Spirit AeroSystems [NYSE :SPR] has announced the opening of SolidaritUS Family Health Center, a new no-cost direct primary care health center in Oklahoma, the company said.

The health center gives Spirit employees and their families in Oklahoma access to personal physicians and broad-scope primary care services at no cost.

The number of patients under care of each SolidaritUS Health doctor is up to 75 percent fewer than the number typically seen by a primary care doctor in fee-for-service practice. The relatively small number of patients under each doctor´s care offers patients and their personal doctors the unique opportunity to get to know one another and build a trusted relationship of mutual responsibility for each patient´s health.
