|Henry Ford Partners With Chrysler To Open Onsite Healthcare Clinic And Pharmacy
Chrysler LLC and Henry Ford Health System unveiled plans
to open an onsite health clinic and pharmacy inside Chrysler
LLC’s Auburn Hills, Mich. headquarters.
Chrysler said the clinic will provide nearly 12,000 Chrysler employees and contractors with access to medical care.
The onsite clinic and pharmacy, which is scheduled to
open in the fall, will offer diagnosis and treatment of chronic
conditions in addition to common ailments, such as strep throat and ear
The clinic will be staffed by Henry Ford Medical Group physicians and professionals. Preventive services will also be provided.
"The onsite clinic and pharmacy allow Chrysler to
continue its mission of promoting a healthy workenvironment," said Kate
Kohn-Parrott, director of integrated healthcare and disability,
Chrysler LLC. "We are proud to partner with Henry Ford Health System in
providing convenient access to high-quality, cost-effective medical
care to our employees and contract workers directly in the workplace."
Treatment costs will be billed through the individual
employee’s healthcare plan, with the same applicable co-pays and
deductibles. Because the facility will be independently operated by
Henry Ford Health System, patient confidentiality will be maintained
just as it is at any traditional free-standing Henry Ford facility.
"The onsite clinic and pharmacy is a wonderful
opportunity for Henry Ford Health System to deliver easily accessed,
high-quality healthcare to people working at Chrysler headquarters,"
said Nancy Schlichting, Henry Ford Health System president and CEO. "It
is a model we believe could be successful with many Michigan employers
in the future."
