Dalton, Ga. -- Shaw Industries Group Inc. opened a full-service family health center this week.
The new center, operated by employer-sponsored healthcare provider QuadMed, officially opened its doors November 5 with a special celebration but began receiving patients in late October.
The Shaw Family Health Center serves Shaw associates and dependents covered by the Shaw medical plan.
"The Shaw Family Health Center is intended to provide Shaw associates with convenient and affordable healthcare options," said Paul Richard, Shaw vp of human resources. "We want to provide our associates with resources to make informed decisions - designing a sensible diet plan, incorporating exercise, for example - that will lead to better health."
The center promotes wellness and provides affordable care through range of services including acute care, routine physicals, immunizations, preventive screenings, and lab work. Its medical staff include a physical therapist, athletic trainers, a wellness coordinator, registered dietician, and a certified diabetic educator who work in collaboration with the doctor and nurse practitioners on-site.
The center will also refer patients to local specialists within the community.
"By adding another high quality healthcare option to the Dalton-Whitfield County community, we can increase the likelihood that associates will seek medical care when necessary," said Eddie Reeves, Shaw's director of human resource operations.
