Last Updated: 230 days ago
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A new health clinic for employees at Paramount Farms is opening its doors.
The clinic is a joint-partnership between the citrus company and Kaiser.
Medical services at the clinic are free to employees and their families.
Kaiser hopes the additional health resource provides care for people who might otherwise go without needed healthcare.
"Our intent is to really take care of our employees. The concept is wellness at work. We have no co-pays, no fees at all whether they have insurance with Kaiser or not, it doesn't matter," said David Krause with Paramount Citrus.
Kern County Public Health said it would like to see more employer sponsored health clinics in our area.
