Good Samaritan is embarking on a new venture with Toyota Boshoku America,
Inc. by providing staff for onsite clinics at their Princeton and Lawrenceville
locations. A nurse practitioner and medical assistant/licensed practical
nurse will be employed by Good Samaritan to provide health care services
to employees Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
An onsite clinic at both locations will improve access and convenience
for employees, improve productivity, improve health outcomes, and promote
wellness and the importance of preventative care. “We are excited
to take on this new partnership with Toyota Boshoku Indiana, LLC and Toyota
Boshoku Illinois, LLC,” stated Mickey Pagan, Director of Integrated
Health. “By providing health care services in their employer-based
clinics, employees can avoid having to take a day off of work for a visit
to a health care provider for either an acute illness or scheduled visit.
Offering care through an on-site clinic will allow an employee to simply
visit the health office and, depending on their diagnosis, return to work
the same day.”
Each clinic will provide various industrial/occupational services such
as: return to work screenings, self care education, injury prevention/ergonomic
assessments, durable medical equipment (DME) supplies, first aid and post-injury
drug testing. Basic primary care will also be available featuring: low-acuity
illness treatment, minor disease management, health education, on-site
generic medications and more. Flu clinics and biometric testing services
will also be available to Toyota Boshoku group employees.
“This is a great opportunity for Good Samaritan to work with a large
employer and provide world class health care to their employees,”
said Adam Thacker, Chief Operating Officer of Good Samaritan Physician
Network. “We are always looking for new ways to offer services to
more people and we hope that this partnership will be the beginning of
more ventures in the future.”
The agreement between Good Samaritan and Toyota Boshoku America is still
in its early phase and candidates are currently being recruited to staff
the clinics. Both parties hope to see each office opened by the beginning of 2017.
