Stellantis has announced the opening of a comprehensive primary care health and wellness center in Toledo, Ohio, exclusively for the more than 9,500 employees and their families working and living within a 15-mile radius of the facility.
With a focus on keeping people well, Stellantis is collaborating with ProMedica Health System to provide a personalized, comprehensive health and wellness experience supported by a leading and respected health system in a new, state-of-the-art medical center.
ProMedica is a mission-based, not-for-profit health and well-being organization headquartered in Toledo, Ohio. It serves communities in 28 states. The organization offers acute and ambulatory care, an insurance company with a dental plan, and post-acute and academic business lines. The organization has more than 43,000 employees, 12 hospitals, 2,500+ physicians and advanced practice providers with privileges, 1,000+ healthcare providers employed by ProMedica Physicians, a health plan, and 335+ assisted living facilities, skilled nursing centers, memory care communities, outpatient rehabilitation clinics, and hospice, palliative, and home health care agencies.
Opening to employees and their families this month, this new health and wellness center provides easy access to such services as preventative and acute care, chronic disease management, infant/pediatric care, women’s health services, behavioral health services, physical therapy, nutrition, and health education coaching, advanced medical diagnostics, virtual care options, pharmacy services and more.
“As a global automaker and mobility provider with a diverse and talented workforce, Stellantis understands that investing in our employees’ health and well-being is good business,” said Tobin J. Williams, Senior Vice President for Human Resources, Stellantis North America. “Our goal in opening this facility is to improve our employees’ access to quality and convenient health care.”
The 12,000-square-foot health and wellness center, located at 3500 Executive Parkway, will feature 13 examination rooms along with eight consultation, lab and treatment rooms, and a large physical therapy area. It will provide a convenient, low- to no-cost option for acute, preventative, and wellness-focused primary care services for all Stellantis employees and their covered family members enrolled in the company’s health care plans.
UAW-represented employees will not be charged any office visit co-pays when they use the services offered by the clinic. And, as a non-traditional medical office, appointment times are expected to be longer to ensure adequate time to address each patient’s medical needs.
“We are excited to be partnering with Stellantis on a top-notch, dedicated family health and wellness center for its northwest Ohio employees,” said Kent Bishop, MD, President, ProMedica Physicians and Chief Medical Officer for ProMedica Physicians, Pharmacy, and Acute Care. “ProMedica’s expert care team is committed to helping Stellantis employees and their eligible family members improve their health and well-being by providing coordinated, customized, and convenient primary care and wellness services. With the potential to provide patient cost-savings benefits and encourage a healthier workforce, this new clinic presents a win-win situation for Stellantis and its local employees.”
Featuring same-day appointments, extended hours, and virtual care options, the center will connect employees with multiple primary care providers and needed wellness services. Care plans will focus on a comprehensive approach to wellness across lifestyle, fitness, and medical integrations, providing a unique opportunity for managing chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes.
ProMedica currently provides care at six on-site/near-site health and wellness centers, representing 13 employer clients. ProMedica has more than 1,200 physicians and advanced practice providers with 2 million patient visits each year across Ohio and Michigan.
Stellantis, with support from the UAW, was the first domestic automaker to establish a near-site health and wellness center with the opening of a site in Kokomo, Indiana, in 2018. Toledo is the fourth center opened by the company, which also includes sites in Belvidere, Illinois, and in Detroit, Michigan.
“With high per capita health care costs and difficulties for employees accessing primary care services, Stellantis looks forward to ProMedica delivering an easy-to-access, personalized, and distinct health care experience,” said Stellantis’ Williams.
