Ruiz Food Products, Inc., the largest frozen Mexican food manufacturer in the United States, on November 13 announced the opening of an on-site health center for insured team members and their covered family members at the company’s Florence, South Carolina plant.

The Ruiz Foods Health Center, operated by CareATC, will provide insured team members and their covered family members with access to primary care, including lab tests, chronic health services and generic prescription medications at no additional cost. The health center will be staffed by a physician, nurse practitioner and two medical assistants.

“Having on-site healthcare with no additional cost or co-pay is important to the entire Ruiz Foods family,” said Kim Ruiz Beck, Ruiz Foods’ chairman of the board and daughter of co-founder, Fred Ruiz. “The convenience of an on-site health center is proven to improve team member health while lowering the cost of care for team members and the company. We hope Ruiz Foods team members will appreciate that our health centers will intentionally schedule longer appointments than standard clinics, so our healthcare professionals have more time to answer questions and improve employee health.” Beck noted that the Ruiz Foods Health Center operated by CareATC will have extended hours two days a week to accommodate team members working second and third shifts at the Florence plant.
