The clinic is to offer care to employees only. We don’t want employees overworked and neglecting their healthcare. Is this a sign of the times and perhaps something we can soon see on Wall Street? We have all probably read by now how heart attacks are on the rise with some of their “stressful money making” positions to where they earn millions in bonuses.
I guess the rest of us have Minute Clinics for our needs. I don’t know much about BankAtlantic, but I do know that many employees who work for banks at the teller levels can’t afford the health insurance they offer, too expensive, so there are many “worker” level positions at many banks who also are part of the “uninsured” today.

CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Tenet South Florida, a region of the Tenet Healthcare Corporation, has opened an on-site medical clinic at the BankAtlantic headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
"The new clinic allows BankAtlantic to offer its employees a quality healthcare solution that is effective, efficient and is part of a growing trend that we believe many other corporations could benefit from as well," said Craig Bloom, regional director of strategic operations for Tenet Healthcare.
The Health & Wellness by Tenet clinic opened Feb. 25. Patients receive medical care from Anthony Maher, a board certified family physician with Tenet Florida Physician Services and a member of the medical staff at North Shore Medical Center-FMC Campus in Lauderdale Lakes. Services offered at the clinic include immunizations, physicals and consultations. Maher also works with patients who suffer from chronic health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma.
"The health and wellness of our employees is very important to our company, and with Tenet's help we were able to open our on-site clinic. We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Tenet in the community and at our corporate office," said Jarett S. Levan, president and CEO of BankAtlantic.
