Marathon Health – Why Work For Us?

Since 2005, physicians, nurses, dietitians, specialists and staff members at Marathon Health have dedicated themselves to changing the way healthcare is delivered. Our motivation is simple: improve population health by identifying health risks and working with people, one-on-one, to help mitigate those risks. Because employers are often the gateway to healthcare within the U.S., we help develop healthy workers and decrease the cost of care in the process. The best way to keep people healthy is to keep them from getting sick in the first place.

Integrated healthcare for a healthy outlook

Based in Vermont, we operate clinics for employer organizations in 40 states and within several industry verticals--manufacturing, professional services, finance, school districts, city and county government, and hospitals. What these employers seek is a solution that respects their most important asset: their employees. They are also looking for an innovative, sustainable way to curb their healthcare costs, not just by decreasing benefits or shifting costs. They want a model of care that helps their employees live healthier, more productive lives. And in the end, they want documentation that this approach is working with detailed business analytics to evaluate performance. It is for these reasons employers choose Marathon Health as their onsite health center partner.

At Marathon Health, we're leading a grassroots effort to change health and healthcare in this country. And the best news is that it is only going to benefit your business's bottom line. Studies have shown that the economic impact of our healthcare model goes far beyond cost savings. In fact, companies that put an emphasis on healthcare and maintain a healthier staff can actually perform better in the stock market.

To accomplish our vision, we combine services from our extensive offering into a program tailored to each company’s culture, setting and workforce.

Company values, well-being programs and community giving.

We describe ourselves as Marathon Nation - and everyone who works here is an ambassador. Our ambassadors across the country work together to benefit their communities as part of our culture of inspiring ourselves and others. To help our staff and clinicians lead by example, we developed three programs that all work together to support us on our own journeys to lead healthier lives.

team-culture Our Ambassador's Code promotes our company values through the following tenets: integrity, compassion, respect, exceptional service, teamwork and living the mission. By living the mission, being present for others, accomplishing more together and giving people more than they expect, our employees embrace their work with passion.

My Marathon Health promotes programs that support employee well-being in mind, body and spirit. We want to practice what we preach and give all of our ambassadors the tools and opportunity to better themselves through health initiatives. Our motto? Live it. Be it. Give it.

Well Together promotes giving and volunteering in the communities where we live. Some of our outreach efforts include healthy-food drives to benefit local food shelters, educating middle and elementary school students about health and wellness, supporting Special Olympics, and providing free blood-pressure checks for senior citizens, all as part of a continuous effort to be leaders in the communities we serve.

Rediscover Your Passion
With a Marathon Health career, you’ll have the opportunity to reignite your passion for helping people become active participants in their own health.

When you practice medicine at our worksite health centers, you are part of the movement to change healthcare. It is our mission to not only treat people when they are sick, but help them live healthy, happy, productive lives. Our providers are the key to achieving these goals. Marathon Health was recently named as one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Vermont.

Practice Transformative Healthcare

We don't view every visit as a transaction. Instead, we encourage our clinicians to make the amount of contact they feel is necessary to help transform a person's life. Whether that's one visit or several, you get to pave your patients' paths to health.

Collaborative Care

While our health centers are located throughout the United States, the team at the corporate headquarters supports you at all levels -- in the day-to-day operation of the center, systems, tools and technology for practicing evidence-based medicine, and analytics to help you track individual and health center progress.

Let Us Take Care of You

Marathon Health offers regular hours plus a comprehensive portfolio of benefits, including health, vision and dental insurance. We also provide a 401(k) with matching, flexible spending accounts, paid time off, continuing education tuition and more.

    I have been working at Marathon Health full-time (Less than a year)


    I finally feel like am somewhere that I can make a difference in people's lives and their health. Marathon supports and equips us with the ability to build unique one on one relationships with our patients. I can finally say that I have now discovered "this is why I became a nurse practitioner!" The administration is very supportive and encouraging and easy to talk to. They treat everyone equally and they go out of their way to make their ambassadors feel appreciated.


    Honestly, I cannot think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change! Love being a part of Marathon Nation.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winooski, VT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Marathon Health (Winooski, VT).


    I applied for a communications position with this company. I was interviewed by phone and then contacted a week later by an HR representative (a woman). I was told the marketing team had decided not to fill the position and instead, they'd be creating 2 different, similar positions but they had not yet written the job descriptions for them, nor did she know what the positions would be called. She asked me if I would be interested in interviewing for one of those. I said I would consider it, and asked to be sent the job description once completed. They never sent it.

    A month later, after receiving no contact from the company, I was contacted by a different HR representative (a man this time) and asked to interview for the new position. Not only had I not received a job description for this position, but I had not even applied for it. I accepted the phone interview so that I could find out more. The interview went well, and a week later I was contacted by a third HR representative (another woman this time) to come into the office to interview with three members of the marketing team.

    It has now been well over a month and I have received no contact from anyone from this organization. I have followed up with HR to ask about the status of the position and received no response from anyone. I saw on LinkedIn that the position was filled two months ago, but I was never contacted. This company is disorganized and downright unprofessional. I interviewed with five different people over the span of three months and didn't even receive a generic e-mail telling me that they chose a different candidate. I'm very sorry I wasted my time here.
