GREENWOOD, Ind. -- Employees of the City of Greenwood enrolled in a medical plan with ADVANTAGE Health Solutions Inc. SM  (Advantage) now have a central location to have their medical and wellness needs met.

Franciscan WorkingWell and Greenwood have partnered to offer an employee health and wellness center, which will open June 3 at the New City Center Building, 300 S. Madison Ave. The clinic’s focus is to provide convenient primary care for acute illnesses and minor injuries for covered city employees and dependents over the age of 1.

"The health center is a tremendous benefit to our employees and their families,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers. “It’s convenient and offered at no cost to the employees and their families covered under the city’s health insurance plan and should reduce our medical care costs.”

The clinic will be led by Daniel Wikse, MD, a family medicine and occupational medicine specialist with Franciscan St. Francis Health.
