Trending: Jeff Bezos and other investors raise $200 million for vertical farming startup Plenty

Employers pay a lot to recruit and retain skilled workers. Now, at Expedia they are going the extra step to make sure they stay healthy.

The Bellevue online travel giant announced today that it plans to open a new health clinic early next year in partnership with Qliance, providing easy access to medical care on the corporate campus. Expedia employs about 2,000 people in the Seattle area. This marks the first time that Qliance has set up a clinic on a corporate campus.

“We are excited to be providing employees with an innovative new avenue for accessing medical attention and services that will make it easier for them to practice consistent health care,” said Connie Symes, executive vice president of human resources at Expedia. “In collaboration with Qliance, the opening of this new onsite clinic is another step in our ongoing initiative to make personal health and well-being a major focus for our workforce.”

Based in Seattle, Qliance’s backers include Jeff Bezos, Michael Dell, Drew Carey and Nick Hanauer. It is also funded in part by Rich Barton, the chairman of Zillow and former CEO of Expedia. Late last year, Qliance raised an additional $3.1 million.
