SHEFFIELD | Sukup Manufacturing Co. announced plans to open a health clinic at the company's headquarters.
The facility will include five exam rooms, two offices, and one lab, and a registered nurse and nurse practioner. Mercy Medical Center–North Iowa will staff the clinic.
Employees, according to a release, will have access to biometric screening, health coaching, weight loss coaching, smoking cessation, telecounseling, and other routine clinical tests.
“Some benefits the company hopes to realize are earlier detection and treatment of illness, fewer emergency room visits, and reinforcing a culture of wellness here at Sukup,” Sukup human resources representative Samantha Petersburg.
The clinic will begin taking appointments in January 2018.
The company, which makes grain storage, drying and handling equipment, has more than 600 employees on its 1 million square-foot campus.
