Shaw Industries has opened the Shaw Family Health Center, a full-service family health center located at 2659 Abutment Road in Dalton, Ga. The new Health Center, operated by QuadMed, a nationally recognized leader in employer-sponsored healthcare, began receiving patients in late October and celebrated with an official grand opening on Nov. 5. The Center serves Shaw associates and dependents covered by the Shaw medical plan. 

“The Shaw Family Health Center is intended to provide Shaw associates with convenient and affordable healthcare options,” said Shaw Vice President of Human Resources Paul Richard. “We want to provide our associates with resources to make informed decisions - designing a sensible diet plan, incorporating exercise, for example - that will lead to better health. The Shaw Family Health Center is part of our focus on creating a better future for our associates and their families.” 

With a focus on wellness and providing affordable, high quality care in a convenient location for Shaw associates, the Center provides a full spectrum of services including acute care, routine physicals, immunizations, preventive screenings, lab work, and wellness services. The Center is staffed with medical professionals including a physical therapist, athletic trainers, a wellness coordinator, registered dietician, and certified diabetic educator all of whom work in close collaboration with the doctor and nurse practitioners on-site. The Center will also refer patients to local specialists within the community. 

“By adding another high quality healthcare option to the Dalton-Whitfield County community,” said Eddie Reeves, Shaw’s director of HR operations, “we can increase the likelihood that associates will seek medical care when necessary.”
