The center is around 2,500 square feet and can accommodate three employees per hour. The 73-year-old foundry and machine shop's president, JB Brown, said, "I've wanted to establish an on-site clinic for a long time. I think the benefits to offering something in our backyard for our employees and their families is just another way to show our appreciation for their hard work. The cost of health care continues to rise; this option allows access to free care and free medication for our employees throughout the week."

Bremen's announcement also said the nurse practitioner will work with employees individually on various wellness programs for assistance in treating diabetes, cholesterol, and other health issues.
