A new health clinic available to Oklahoma County employees will begin seeing patients this week.

Justin Tomberlin, director of business development for Arkansas-based IMWell Health said the clinic at 136 NW 10 will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, starting Monday.

Oklahoma County employees who seek treatment at the IMWell clinic will have no co-pay or deductible obligations and will receive an incentive to get wellness checks. The program is entirely voluntary, Tomberlin said.

The county is one of several large employers in Oklahoma City to approve a contract with the company this spring.

Other participants include MTM Recognition and Mutual Assurance Administrators.

County officials said the clinic could reduce claims and payouts by improving the overall health of the employee population and reducing emergency room and inpatient visits. Nearly 3,000 county employees and their dependents will be eligible for treatment at the new clinic.

A grand opening has been set for July 20.
