Latham & Watkins today opened the LiveWell Center, the firm’s new on-site health centre in its Los Angeles office, managed by Johns Hopkins Medicine. The new centre expands the firm’s market-leading well-being platform which, for over a decade, has provided innovative physical and mental well-being programs designed to meet the unique needs of its personnel.
The LiveWell Center provides a variety of medical and preventive services such as acute care for minor illnesses and injuries, screenings, flu shots, travel immunisations, blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, and blood work. The new centre will also provide counselling and well-being coaching, chronic disease prevention and management, and physical therapy.
These expanded services complement the ongoing programs of LiveWell Latham, the firm’s global health and well-being program, including concerted efforts across the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Asia around mental health, resilience, diabetes prevention, ergonomics, and other areas.
LiveWell Center services are available to all lawyers and staff in the firm’s downtown Los Angeles offices, as well as those visiting on firm business — with nearly all services being free of charge.
Johns Hopkins Medicine manages the LiveWell Center in adherence with Johns Hopkins medical protocols. The experienced clinical team is led by an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and includes two well-being counselors, two physical therapists, and a Registered Nurse.
The firm plans to open a second LiveWell Center with Johns Hopkins in New York when the office relocates to 1271 Avenue of the Americas in 2020.
