Yanmar Opens Health Clinic


Yanmar America Corp. yesterday opened an onsite health clinic at its Adairsville, Ga., headquarters.

The Yanmar Wellness Center, operated by Atrium Health Floyd, will provide employees and their families with free primary and urgent care, Atrium Health said in a statement yesterday.

The facility can provide a variety of services from consultations and comprehensive primary care to preventive screenings, lab services and urgent care. It can dispense a range of common medications. All services are free of charge.

“Currently, the only option for employees who need a medical consultation is to take personal leave or to postpone their care needs,” said Jeff Albright, president of Yanmar America, in the statement. “The Yanmar Wellness Center will allow employees to seek quality, timely care and save their leave days for vacations or time with friends or family. This center is part of Yanmar America’s approach to improving overall employee wellbeing.”

Yanmar America’s relationship with Atrium Health Floyd began more than seven years ago when Floyd Health (now known as Atrium) delivered flu shots to Yanmar employees. The service expanded into onsite biometric screenings, health fairs and mobile mammography.

“We’re very pleased to be partnering with Yanmar America to serve the medical needs of their employees,” said Chris Butler, director of corporate health. “The establishment of this facility firmly places Yanmar ahead of the curve in employee wellness and we’re excited to be working with them to deliver real benefits to employees and their families.”
