Standing on the Cutting Edge of Health Care Delivery

Lockheed Martin continues to innovate
by Laurie M.

I am a registered nurse, and yes, I am a Lockheed Martin employee!

Lockheed Martin continues the innovative philosophy that was the creative force behind the establishment of our foundation company 100 years ago, the Glen L. Martin Company. Today, Lockheed Martin is on the cutting edge of health care delivery. That’s right – health care!

Twenty-seven Wellness Centers have been established on Lockheed Martin campuses across the United States to provide free urgent care services to employees. By offering convenient, confidential campus-based medical care, the employee and the company benefit – employees will be healthier and the company reduces health care costs.

It’s exciting to be part of a business in its infancy! In October 2010, I joined Lockheed Martin and began work in a construction zone – the Sunnyvale Wellness Center was in full renovation. Over the next three months walls were constructed, offices created, carpet laid and equipment ordered. A state-of-the-art clinic replaced the previous Medical Services. Two-and-a-half years later, we treat illnesses and injuries and offer the latest in preventive care to 6,000 Sunnyvale employees.

Innovation created the Wellness Centers. Our values “Do What’s Right,” “Respect Others” and “Perform with Excellence” will ensure the longevity of campus-based urgent care, a healthy workforce and a profitable business.
