SPARTANBURG, SC -- Walgreens and BMW Manufacturing celebrated the grand opening Jan. 8 of a comprehensive worksite health center on the BMW campus in Spartanburg, SC.

The 25,000-square foot facility, managed by Walgreens Employer Solutions Group, will provide BMW associates, dependents and eligible retirees a wide range of health services, including primary and occupational care.

Patients will have access to physical exams, chronic disease management, dental, vision, physical therapy, high blood pressure management and personalized health coaching. The center will also offer a laboratory for medical testing, digital X-rays, biometric screenings and mobile mammography scans.

The expanded full-service pharmacy will include private consultation rooms, an extensive selection of over-the-counter medications and a drive-through window.

"Walgreens has increasingly shown how investing in worksite health programs can be instrumental in helping to reduce costs for employers, while improving the overall health and productivity of their workforce," said Peter Hotz, Walgreens group vice president. "We're proud to expand our relationship with BMW and look forward to helping its associates, their dependents and company retirees get, stay and live well through a broad scope of on-site health and wellness programs and services."

The new health center is located on the campus of the company's 4 million square-foot manufacturing facility.

"We want to bring quality health care to associates and their families in a cost-effective and efficient manner," said Annmarie Higgins, vice president of human resources for BMW Manufacturing. "We want to provide individuals greater opportunity to reach and maintain optimal health through education, prevention, early detection and management of existing health conditions."

Walgreens has operated an on-site pharmacy on the BMW campus since 2005.
