When employers are asked how they plan to control health benefit costs over the long term, they talk about improving employee health. This focus on employee health is one factor fueling growth in onsite employee health clinics across the country. The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) has partnered with Activate Healthcare to provide a convenient, onsite employee health clinic located on the south side of the MVCSC Transportation and Maintenance building at 1776 W. State Road 234, Fortville, IN 46040. Mt. Vernon employees who participate in the MVCSC Medical insurance plan now have access to this facility.
There is no cost to visit the on-site clinic.

This staff benefit will help control medical costs as Activate Healthcare is responsible for the return on investment and will provide cost analysis information. To continue to provide this onsite staff benefit, we will need to obtain at least 70% utilization of our capacity. Additionally, Activate has a health preventative component providing an overall wellness approach for our staff, designed to assist in lowering the number of medical claims.”
