Round Rock city employees have a new on-site clinic that will provide basic health needs

RockCare is meant to help the city get a handle on increasing healthcare costs. Round Rock Communications Director Will Hampton says the City expects to save up to $200,000 a year in health care and insurance expenses. City employees can get basic medical services, vaccinations, drug screenings and physicals. Hampton says,"That's one of the reasons, one of the savings that we see...it will just be in staff-time folks, not having to take time off to go to a clinic." The city of Round Rock contracted with HealthStat, which will provide a part-time physician, two physician assistants, and a medical assistant.
