Health Clinic Targets Ag Community
Will serve unique needs of members' agricultural workers & their families

IRVINE, Calif. — UnitedAg, a member-owned agricultural trade association representing more than 600 organizations in California and Arizona, will open its first Health & Wellness Clinic in Visalia in January 2017. Open to all UnitedAg members’ covered employees and dependents, the clinic will provide a full range of services focused on the unique needs of the agricultural community – from acute and episodic care to health-risk and disease management to wellness and prevention –all without charging service co-pays or deductibles for most plans.

Located at 315 South Johnson Street in Visalia, the UnitedAg Health & Wellness Clinic will emphasize short wait times and personalized care, and feature on-site lab services and many available on-site prescriptions.

“This first UnitedAg clinic in Visalia represents a new model in health and wellness – one that delivers the comprehensive, high-quality services that ag workers and their families need at a cost they can actually afford,” said Kirti Mutatkar, President and CEO of UnitedAg. “At the same time, our clinic’s operating model focuses on helping to lower our member organizations’ employee health-coverage costs by treating health problems early, before they worsen; reducing unnecessary emergency-room visits; and lowering worker absenteeism.”

“We hope this will be the first of several such UnitedAg Health & Well Clinics serving our members and their employees and dependents in the months and years to come,” Mutatkar added.

The clinic’s services will be provided by Visalia-based Elite Corporate Medical Services, a respected health-services provider operating workplace clinics throughout California.
