CirrusMD today announced that it has been selected by Michaels, the largest specialty retailer of arts, crafts, and home décor in North America, to provide on-demand virtual primary care for its part-time and seasonal U.S.-based Team Members.
Michaels, which operates 1,290 stores in the United States and Canada, is the destination where all creatives get inspired, learn, shop and create. Michaels’ culture includes a core value of “putting people first,” which it extends to both employees and customers.
"We’re delighted that Michaels has entrusted CirrusMD to provide its Team Members and their dependents with instant, on-demand virtual primary care that’s accessible anywhere, anytime,” said CirrusMD CEO, Jamie Hall. “We share Michaels’ commitment to ‘putting people first,’ and are proud to provide our services to their team members, including Spanish-speaking employees who can now chat with our doctors in their primary language using our real-time language translation capabilities.”
Using CirrusMD’s secure, chat-based mobile and desktop apps, Michaels part-time Team Members can now initiate on-demand virtual care encounters with board-certified physicians in less than 60 seconds, at no cost to the Team Member for the consultation. Employees interact directly with a doctor from start to finish, without wasting time with chat bots, intake forms or virtual waiting rooms that delay care.
“CirrusMD’s chat-based virtual care provides Michaels Team Members with accessible, flexible healthcare at no cost to them,” said Lisa Cummings, Vice President of Total Rewards at Michaels. "Providing our part-time Team Members with the ability to discreetly consult with a doctor from anywhere, at a time that is convenient for them, and at no cost to them is a truly meaningful benefit that we are thrilled to offer.”
CirrusMD delivers on-demand, virtual urgent, primary, and acute care.
