Headquartered in Winooski, Marathon Health is a provider of workplace health centers committed to helping employers throughout the country transform healthcare delivery and optimize the health of their workforce and business while addressing the high cost of healthcare.
MSN wrote this about its 50-state list:
"Some companies are more than companies — they're local heroes and cornerstones of the community. Don’t believe us? Try traveling to Beaverton, Oregon — home of the Nike Swoosh — and mention how much you love Adidas in a local coffee shop. (Yeah, that won’t go over well.)
"With that in mind, we pulled together the complete list of beloved companies based in every state, drawn from interviews, local business trade magazines, major outlets like Forbes and Fortune, and other statistics.
"So click ahead and learn all about the companies all but guaranteed to stay profitable in their home states.
"Vermont: Marathon Health
"On top of offering on-site healthcare, this healthcare company works to motivate the people it serves to take an active part in staying healthy. Named one of the Best Places to Work in Vermont per Vermont Business Magazine, it encourages clinicians to take the time they need with patients rather than looking at each visit as a transaction, and it’s nice that a company would have such a vested interest in the well-being of their clients."
