Memorial Hermann, Hamilton Health Box Making Health Care More Accessible and Affordable Through Innovative Care Delivery Model

Memorial Hermann Health System – a non-profit, award-winning health system committed to creating healthier Houston communities – has partnered with Hamilton Health Box, Inc. to bring on-site health care to Houston-area employers with as few as 100 employees.

Memorial Hermann currently operates on-site clinics for several local, large employers.

By utilizing Hamilton Health Box’s operational model, which is based on both telemedicine and in-person care, the partners are now making on-site care accessible and affordable for small employers and their employees, as well.

“It’s unfortunate that high-quality health care is difficult to come by for so many hardworking Americans,” says Toby Hamilton, MD, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Hamilton Health Box, “I am excited to be able to bring health care to those who previously did not have access.”

Results from early clients already show increases in annual physicals, primary care visits, and chronic care management, while expensive emergency room and urgent care visits decreased, along with the overall amount spent on healthcare services.

“Our partnership with Hamilton Health Box aligns with our commitment to innovative care delivery models that deliver positive health outcomes at a manageable cost,” said David L. Callender, MD, President and CEO of Memorial Hermann. “The partnership supports both employers, by helping them retain employees and control healthcare costs, and employees, by helping them stay healthy, productive, and engaged.”
