About Us

Who We Are

BluMine Health was founded with a focused vision:  Find a better way to impact, communicate, and deliver better health outcomes with primary care and wellness.

We accomplished this mission with our clients and their 20,000 plus employees and family members. Our care centers are centered around concierge primary care delivered by veteran nurse practitioners with the quality and clinical oversight led by a physician based medical direction. Multiple avenues of design strategies, state of the art medical analytics, and wellness plan integration have allowed BluMine Health to impact the bottom lines of our patient employees, their families and the companies that employ them.  

In January 2019 BluMine Health and Baptist Health formed a strategic alliance to deliver BluMine’s Direct Primary Care (DPC) model to the Baptist Health markets throughout southern Indiana and Kentucky. Baptist direct employer strategies illustrate the collaboration of a major health care system, a Direct Primary Care model, and the employer community. Through this alliance, BluMine Health and Baptist Health created their “White Glove” referral process for easier access to acute and specialty medical care. A referral process that has plagued the employer health care market for years.

Greater care access to care is created when BluMine Health’s customers experience no wait times, same-day appointments, walk-ins, and more time with a medical provider. Additionally, Baptist Health’s dedicated resources with the “White Glove” referral platform continues the next level of care for BluMine’s mission.  


Vision Statement

We believe when you access good medical data and combine it with the outreach to care and educate, the result is a healthier patient population with the desired mindset to improve their wellbeing. This medical echelon has been a constant employer pursuit for many years. Ultimately the repetitive engagement of the same process can have a similar profound positive impact on the families of that employer’s workforce.

BluMine’s overall vision is to create greater access to that echelon level of primary care!

The staff at BluMine Health is genuinely concerned about you as a patient. They are very friendly and informative. I have loved my personal experience with them.


BluMine has been very accommodating on doing our physicals without prior notice. We receive the information back in a very timely manner. They always take time to talk to us about what is needed for our employees. It is good to have an occupational care facility close for minor emergencies.

Clark County Government began their association with BluMine Health in late 2017.  As the utilization and relationship grows, our employees and their families increasingly trust and rely on BluMine for their primary care as well as chronic care management needs. BluMine Health has been instrumental in helping us develop a wellness program. We would recommend BluMine Health to employers of all sizes.

BluMine Health partnered with Tarter about a year and a half ago and the relationship thus far has been terrific. Their team works hard to ensure that our employees and our company receive the utmost standard of healthcare. I would highly recommend that your company consider speaking to them about how they can help your organization.

The partnership with BluMine has been a great compliment to our employee benefits programs. The BluMine team works closely with us to identify areas to drive awareness to improve our wellness program initiatives and the overall health and well being of our team and their families. It’s all about the patient experience and how to help them improve their health and get back to the things they enjoy.
