ACS opening health clinic for employees

Affiliated Computer Services, one of Lexington and the state's largest employers, announced Tuesday that it's opening an on-site health clinic for employees in the city.

It's the first such clinic at any of ACS's more than 500 locations and is being treated as a pilot project, said spokesman Chris Gilligan. Employees will be able to make unlimited visits to the clinic for checkups, blood work, illnesses and more, and will be serviced by a nurse practitioner. The cost will be $15 per visit, less than a co-pay, at a doctor's office, he said.

The walk-in clinic, which is a partnership with CIGNA, will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It opens Wednesday.

Gilligan said Lexington was the perfect testing ground because of the company's large concentration of employees here. The clinic will be located at the ACS facility at Yorkshire Boulevard, where 800 of the company's 2,000 employees in Lexington work.
