BASi employees lend a hand demolishing walls to make way for a new health and wellness center.

A pharmaceutical development company is adding to its Purdue Research Park facility.

BASi is building an 1,800 square foot health and wellness center on site to help employees stay healthy and cut costs.  Dependents of staff members also will have access to services there.

Construction on the $200,000 project started Monday (Nov. 21) and Senior Vice President of Human Resources Lina Reeves-Kerner says it should open in January.  She says the facility with three exam rooms, a lab, and pharmacy will save BASi about $250,000 annually.

Reeves-Kerner says the company is talking to others in the research park about using the wellness center and says four have already expressed interest.  These business would pay BASi a fee to allow their employees access.
