The new year brought a new way to get health care quickly for employees at Nature Fresh Farms, Leamington, Ontario — aboard a mobile health clinic.
The 38-foot bus, parked near Plant 1 greenhouse last week, offers services including diagnosis and treatment, counseling and referrals, according to a news release.
The mobile clinic alternates between the company’s Plant 1 and Plant 2 facilities every Thursday providing on-site health care services from a nurse practitioner.
“The weCHC Mobile Clinic treats illness or injury but can also serve as family doctor for our local and foreign employees seeking proactive health care,” Jeff Gagnon, Nature Fresh Farms corporate compliance director, said in the release.
The company also provides employees and families with workplace wellness resources through the voluntary Employee Assistance Program, offering free specialized services from professionals such as counselors, financial consultants, health professionals and lawyers.
“The programs we offer at Nature Fresh Farms are meant not only to attract and maintain employees, but to provide them with the best possible care,” general manager John Ketler said in the release.
