LAFAYETTE, Ind. — SIA Associates and Officers gathered today for the ground breaking of the new SIA Health & Wellness Center. Managed by WeCare, TLC, the center will provide SIA associates, retirees and dependents with primary and urgent care services, including laboratory services, medication distribution and Total Lifestyle Counseling (TLC).
The center will be located next to SIA’s Recreation Center and Child Development Center. Construction on the
new SIA Health & Wellness Center will begin soon and its opening is slated for this summer.
SIA said the decision to invest in an on-site medical facility was driven by their commitment to provide their associates with more personalized, convenient and cost effective health and wellness options.
“SIA’s new Health & Wellness Center is a substantial investment in our Associates and their families,” stated Tom Easterday, SIA’s Executive Vice President. “It will not only be convenient for them and reduce their healthcare costs, it will also provide greater access to free healthcare screenings and wellness counseling that will help them enjoy healthier lives.”
WeCare TLC, a national provider of Workplace Clinics will be responsible for the management and oversight of the SIA Health & Wellness Center.
According to Ann Roberts, Regional Sales Manager for WeCare TLC, “SIA providing a workplace medical center for its Associates and their families shows a great deal of foresight and dedication on the part of SIA to a healthier workforce population.”
Staffed with a Board Certified Primary Care Physician, a Licensed Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses, the new center will be accessible to SIA associates, retirees and dependents. The center’s extended hours of operation and convenient location are designed to meet the needs of SIA’s various shifts; and its on-site laboratory will result in additional time and cost savings for SIA’s associates and families.
In addition to primary and urgent care services, SIA’s Health & Wellness Center will offer Total Lifestyle Counseling (TLC). Because both SIA associates and SIA benefit from disease, illness and injury avoidance, SIA provides its associates with a comprehensive health and wellness program that focuses on prevention and healthy lifestyles. In a statement released by SIA, the company says that TLC will “enhance SIA’s health and wellness program by providing disease and wellness education through private, one-on-one counseling with a registered nurse.”
