CO+HOOTS, central Phoenix’s first and largest coworking community and entrepreneurial collaboration hub, is now offering its members a health benefits program, which will give members access to exclusive insurance benefit plans that allows individuals to influence their costs by taking care of and monitoring their health. This is the first known health benefits program offered by a coworking space in the U.S.

CO+HOOTS is partnering with fellow Valley-based companies LifeCore and Core Health & Wellness to offer the program, which will include classes and workshops on nutrition; yoga, stretching and massages on site; and access to a personal online health account to track and monitor their health activity and data. CO+HOOTS members in the program will also have access to exclusive insurance plans. Those members can lower their healthcare costs with increased participation in the program’s activities and classes.

“CO+HOOTS strives to stay at the forefront of innovation and problem solving in the world of coworking and entrepreneurial collaboration hubs,” said Jenny Poon, CO+HOOTS founder. “Not only is the cost of insurance an obstacle for many entrepreneurs, freelancers and small businesses, but so is the process of obtaining a plan. With this health benefits program exclusive to members of CO+HOOTS, we will continue to mitigate the risks and issues entrepreneurs face. As a strictly community benefits project, CO+HOOTS will continue to put the needs of our members first.”
