Burlington, VT (PRWEB) December 2, 2008 -- Marathon Health, a leading provider of onsite employee health services and technology solutions, announced today that New Balance, a leading global athletic products company, has selected Marathon Health to develop, implement, and manage onsite health clinics for associates at their Norridgewock and Skowhegan, Maine facilities.

“Our commitment to health is woven into the fabric of our business and the athletic products we produce,” said Carol O’Donnell, Vice President of Human Resources. “Working with Marathon Health provides our Maine associates with access to ‘true’ primary care—preventative screenings, health assessments and coaching for reducing risks, assistance with managing chronic conditions, and a trusted clinician to help understand the complexities of our healthcare system. Their commitment to the needs of the individual and their proven ability to help people make positive health improvements made them the ideal partner for advancing the New Balance culture of health and well being.”

Services available at the clinic, which will be staffed by a nurse practitioner and medical office assistant, include acute and urgent care, health assessments and coaching, disease management, and access to a comprehensive health technology platform with a Personal Health Record, consumer health information, and interactive health tools.
