Lafayette, Ind. -- Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA) Associates and Officers, WeCare TLC representatives and community members gathered today for the Ribbon Cutting of the new SIA Health & Wellness Center. Managed by WeCare, TLC, the center provides SIA Associates, Retirees and Dependants with primary and urgent care services, including laboratory services, medication distribution and Total Lifestyle Counseling (TLC). The new SIA Health & Wellness Center is conveniently located next to SIA’s Recreation Center and Child Development Center.
The decision to invest in an on-site medical facility was driven by SIA’s commitment to provide its Associates with more personalized, convenient and cost effective health and wellness options. WeCare TLC, a national provider of Workplace Clinics will be responsible for the management and oversight of the SIA Health & Wellness Center.
Staffed with a Board Certified Primary Care Physician, a Licensed Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses, the new center will be accessible to SIA Associates, Retirees and Dependants. The center’s extended hours of operation and convenient location are designed to meet the needs of SIA’s various shifts; and its on-site laboratory will result in additional time and cost savings for SIA’s Associates and families.
In addition to primary and urgent care services, SIA’s Health & Wellness Center will offer Total Lifestyle Counseling (TLC). Because both SIA Associates and SIA benefit from disease, illness and injury avoidance, SIA provides its Associates with a comprehensive health and wellness program which focuses on prevention and healthy lifestyles. TLC will enhance SIA’s health and wellness program by providing disease and wellness education through private, one-on-one counseling with a registered nurse.
