Amazon tests primary healthcare program for employees

July 14 (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc said on Tuesday it launched a pilot healthcare program for its employees and their families to provide primary services such as vaccination and physical therapy.

The move comes at a time when the world's largest online retailer has been facing intense scrutiny from U.S. lawmakers and unions over its limited measures to protect staff from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under the program, a partnership with national medical group Crossover Health, 20 health centers would be built over the next few months across five cities near the e-commerce giant's fulfillment centers.

The first center will be located in Las Colinas, Texas. (Reporting by Neha Malara; Editing by Shinjini Ganguli)
