Tyson Foods to Launch New Healthcare Clinics for Workers

Tyson Foods to pilot seven new health clinics near company production facilities in an effort to promote a culture of health.

Employers around the country are working to lessen Coronavirus exposure risk to their employees and create a company culture fixated on better worker health. Tyson Foods is working towards that goal by opening seven new healthcare clinics near company production facilities.

Tyson is partnering with Marathon Health to pilot the new clinics, which they hope will bring employees and their families access to high-quality healthcare and, in most cases, at no cost. The clinics will provide primary and preventive care, including health screenings, lifestyle coaching and health education, as well as behavioral health counseling. The company also plans on collaborating with plant community health providers, including primary care physicians and specialists, to ensure appropriate care is delivered.

The pilot clinic project represents the expansion of the company’s WE CARE workplace safety program to include overall team member health and wellness. It is an addition to the company’s existing health services staff, which includes on-site occupational health nurses at most plant locations.

“We’re piloting these clinics to promote a culture of health in our company that results in a healthier workforce,” said Johanna Söderström, executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Tyson Foods. “Some of our frontline team members aren’t using their health plan benefits, and others don’t seek care until there’s a crisis. We want to change that by providing access to care that can help detect health conditions early and promote healthy habits.”
