Indiana Packers opens health clinic for employees

Indiana Packers Corp.’s employees and their families will soon have access to a free health clinic in Delphi, Ind. The 3,600-square-foot facility is opening this week and is a partnership between Indiana Packers, Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health and Unity Healthcare, reports the Journal-Courier.

“Our vision was to be a benefit to our employees,” said Jim Hardison, the company’s vice president of human resources. “It’s been one of the most positive things we’ve done in the past five years. It’s the talk of the plant.”

Indiana Packers employs more than 2,000 people, with 350 employees added to its workforce in 2012. The clinic is available at no cost to those employees on each employee’s health care plan. The company’s goal is to have 60 percent of its workforce elect to use the clinic within the first year.

The new employee health clinic features eight exam rooms, on-site lab services, electronic medical records plugged into the Franciscan network, medications and immunizations. Neither narcotics nor controlled substances will be at the clinic, which will be staffed with three nurse practitioners from Unity Healthcare.
