DALLAS (July 6, 2022) – While most employers are struggling to find qualified labor, 80 year old family distributor Hardie’s Fresh Foods is keeping and attracting potential new employees and with a FREE on-site health clinic.
In partnership with Hamilton Health Box, Hardie’s offers free healthcare through its Dallas location walk-in clinic staffed with a nurse and doctor available via enhanced video chat.
The Dallas clinic has already treated more than 100 employees, conducted annual physicals, lab work, DOT physicals and identified more than 9 patients that are at high risk for complications due to uncontrolled chronic conditions, and now receive medical care.
“Our on-site health clinic is good for employees and the bottom-line,” said Jennifer Austin, Vice President of Benefits. “Many of our warehouse employees don’t have easy access to doctors, so being able to walk-in without an appointment or insurance is the best care we can give. As a result, we make fewer insurance claims and fewer sick days.”
Hardie’s warehouses operate 24/7, and so does its employee health clinic with a combination of on-site nurse, robust suite of telemedicine, analytics technologies and dedicated care team. No appointment or insurance needed.
The Dallas clinic has been such a great success, that Hardie’s recently launched a mobile clinic for its Austin employees, and has plans for a third clinic in Houston later this year to serve all 700 of its employees.
Hardie’s Fresh Foods has provided fresh ingredients to some of your favorite restaurants for almost 80 years. Family owned and operated, Hardie’s Fresh Foods is the largest privately owned distributor in Texas providing fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy, meats and cheeses to restaurants, schools and hospitals across the state.
