POCATELLO, Idaho – Organic food maker Amy’s Kitchen held a grand opening for its new health care center at its Pocatello, Idaho plant.
In a partnership with Vera Whole Health, a direct-to-employer primary care provider in the Western United States, Amy’s Kitchen transformed its existing onsite health services, first launched by the company in 2011, into whole health wellness centers in each of the company’s three U.S. plants.
Two fully redesigned Amy’s Kitchen whole health primary care centers and new wellness programs were launched at Amy’s White City, Oregon, manufacturing facility with a grand re-opening in June, followed by the Amy’s Santa Rosa, California, facility, which opened later that month.
The new Vera wellness and primary care centers prioritize preventative health and will be staffed by a dedicated team of mostly bilingual medical providers specially trained in individual health coaching. Amy’s employees will have the opportunity to establish wellness plans for not only themselves but also for eligible family members. Care will include ongoing progress checks, with Amy’s Kitchen fully covering costs for prescriptions and services conducted onsite. Employee access to the new wellness centers is in addition to the full range of health insurance benefits that Amy’s Kitchen also provides.
“We specialize in creating good-for-you foods that fuel a healthy body, mind and spirit,” said Amy’s Kitchen Global President Xavier Unkovic. “Our Amy’s Kitchen team is in many ways the soul of our company and vital to our mission. We want to ensure that our employees and their families enjoy top-notch medical care with attention to their personal goals and overall wellness. Vera’s approach to whole health aligns with our goal of better serving our team and helping foster health-minded communities.”
Amy’s Kitchen is a family-owned company that has been a pioneer in the organic food movement since its start in 1987. Its products are available in the U.S. as well as more than 25 other countries around the globe.
