Wellness is an essential aspect of life, and at the American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS), it is ingrained in our culture. We understand the importance of supporting our students on their wellness journeys. That's why we are thrilled to provide a remarkable student benefit called TimelyCare, which offers 24/7, no-cost, virtual care support for all our active enrolled students.
What is TimelyCare?
TimelyCare is a partnership between ACHS and a leading virtual care provider, offering students a wide range of resources to enhance their overall well-being. The best part? There are no out-of-pocket costs or insurance requirements. It's a comprehensive service designed to supplement the health and wellness knowledge our students acquire through their studies at ACHS.
ACHS chose TimelyCare because of its wide range of services, including Health Coaching. As an institution that trains health coaches, we want our students to experience personal health coaching as they go through their program. ACHS also wanted to students to be able to access health and wellness professionals quickly, so TimelyCare's short time to appointment was another important consideration in choosing their service.
"At ACHS, wellness is a core part of our mission. TimelyCare provides essential health and wellness supports that everyone should have access to - from scheduled appointments with providers, including Health Coaches, to self-care journeys such as yoga and meditation. We're proud to see our students, staff, and faculty prioritize their health and wellness through these services and to be an institution that truly lives its mission," shares ACHS President Tracey Abell.
