Hormel Foods Corp. is opening a state-of-the-art health center situated close to its global headquarters and production facility in Austin, Minn.
Premise Health will operate the facility, which will improve access to high-quality, affordable health care for Hormel team members and their dependent family members, the company said.
The health center builds on the existing relationship between Hormel and the renowned Mayo Clinic. With this dedicated health center and additional resources provided by Mayo Clinic, such as radiology and specialty service referrals for things like cardiology, orthopedics, dermatology and behavioral health, employees of Hormel and their dependents will have full access to care when they need it.
The center will provide convenient access to a full spectrum of world-class health care services, including primary care, physical therapy, condition management, lab services and limited prepackaged pharmacy services. It will be staffed by a physician, nurse practitioner, condition management registered nurse, physical therapist, two medical assistants and a medical receptionist.
In total, the center will serve approximately 4,700 eligible individuals on the company’s health plans, including team members, their dependents ages two and older and retirees under age 65.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this incredible benefit to our inspired people. This addition is a testament to our commitment to ensuring our team members have easy access to high-quality health care,” said Janet Hogan, senior vice president of human resources at Hormel. “This health center will be a tremendous resource for both our team members and our company.”
Similar to Hormel, Premise also has a collaboration with Mayo Clinic that includes a Center of Excellence model via the Mayo Clinic Complex Care Program. Hormel team members will be able to take advantage of this program, which provides access to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for those with high-risk diagnoses that require the highest level of care.
