Celadon Trucking Services (CTS) is expanding its “Highway 2 Health” program with the addition of a full -service medical center located at its Indianapolis headquarters. A division of the Celadon Group, CTS started its “Highway 2 Health” program in 2006 in partnership with the Community Health Network to encourage Celadon employees to take a more proactive role in managing their overall well-being.
Since its inception, CTS said “Highway 2 Health” has been instrumental in a variety of company-sponsored health campaigns. These include: employee weight-loss competitions, exercise challenges, truck-stop friendly meal planning and wellness counseling.
With the addition of the medical center, Celadon employees will have convenient access to primary care services, worker’s compensation rehabilitation and disease counseling at Celadon’s headquarters. It will be staffed with board-certified family practice physicians, board-certified nurse practitioners and certified athletic trainers.
Primary-care services will be provided exclusively to Celadon employees covered under the company-sponsored health insurance plan. Employees can take advantage of services with no co-pays and initial supplies of certain prescriptions will be provided free of charge.
"Our employees, especially our team of drivers, are Celadon's most valuable resource,” said Steve Russell, Celadon chairman & CEO. “It is of the highest importance to keep our people healthy, at work, and on the road.
“With this new facility,” he added, “we are able to provide additional services and better overall care right here on site, including primary physician care, prescription services and physical therapy.”
