Watlow, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, is pleased to announce that it has opened an on-site medical clinic at its location on Pennsylvania Ave. in Columbia, MO. The “Health and Wellness Center (HWC),” which will be operated by Healthstat, will provide Watlow team members an opportunity to save time and money, as well as improve and maintain overall health.
The HWC will employ a credentialed and licensed nurse practitioner with oversight from a local supervising physician. Many services will be offered such as acute and episodic care, which includes cough, cold, flu, sprains, laceration repair, etc.; primary care and coordination, including medication prescribing, referrals, lab testing, etc.; chronic disease management; preventative health and health coaching.
The HWC is currently located in Watlow’s location in Columbia, MO. Team members and their spouses will access the clinic from an entrance located outside the building.
“The primary goal of our new on-site clinics is to help our team members live healthier lives,” said Sheryl Hicks, vice president of human resources. “If we engage team members in health promotion, prevention and health risk management activities, it will result in a healthier work place. It will also assist in the reduction of healthcare costs that Watlow and team members pay each year, so it helps everyone.”
