Apple is not just a tech company but it is the company which is now hiring doctors and other medical staff to build its own medical clinics. CNBC first identified Apple’s new subsidiary, AC Wellness.
While AC Wellness’ website is still scanty, it does not try to hide its connection with Apple, Inc. On the about page, there is a big picture of Apple’s new spaceship campus. If you glance at the source code on the contact page, it sends an email to an @apple.com email address.
“AC Wellness Network, LLC. is a subsidiary of Apple, Inc. and is the dedicated management services organization (MSO) for AC Wellness Network, a dedicated independent medical group that serves Apple Wellness Centers in Santa Clara Valley,” you can read this in job ads on Indeed.com. “Our mission is to deliver the world’s best healthcare experiences for Apple employees.”
CNBC found two clinics in Santa Clara County, not very far from Apple’s offices in Cupertino. Additionally, to making sure that your employees have everything they require to remain healthy, Apple could use this subsidiary to test new devices and services.
This is not the first time private companies form healthcare companies for their own employees. Amazon, JPMorgan Chase and Berkshire are grouping up to create their own healthcare company.
It is yet another example that the healthcare system in the U.S. is broken. Big tech companies are now dealing with matters themselves. If you are working for a big company, you are going to be fine because they can assist you with a large range of benefits.
But everyone else is left behind. You do not want to get laid off, work as a freelancer, work for a small and scrappy company or retire.
