You’ve heard of ObamaCare, but now comes what might be called DaraCare as Expedia Inc. plans to open an onsite healthcare clinic at its headquarters in Bellevue, Washington, in January 2013.

We don’t know Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi’s position on the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but like the law the online travel company is partnering with healthcare provider Qliance to emphasize preventative care for the 2,000 employees who work at headquarters or in nearby offices.

“We are excited to be providing employees with an innovative new avenue for accessing medical attention and services that will make it easier for them to practice consistent health care,” says Connie Symes, who heads Human Resources for Expedia. “In collaboration with Qliance, the opening of this new onsite clinic is another step in our ongoing initiative to make personal health and well-being a major focus for our workforce.”
