Dot Foods opens family health center for employees

“Caring for our employees and their loved ones is one of the most important jobs we do,” said Matt Holt, vice president of human resources for Dot. “We are a family business. And from day one, our co-founders Robert and Dorothy Tracy wanted to treat their employees like family. Our best-in-class benefits package is one way we do this. »

“I’m thrilled,” said Sergio Morales, warehousing manager for Modesto Dot Foods. “My family and I recently opted into the plan. Everyone is registered. If there is a need, we will come here first. It literally only takes me two minutes to walk on it. It is convenient.”

The Dot Foods Modesto Family Health Center is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to accommodate flexible employee schedules.

Dot opened its first Family Health Center at its Georgia site in 2013 and has since added facilities in California (Modesto), Indiana (Cambridge City), Idaho (Burley), Oklahoma (Ardmore), and Illinois (Mt. Sterling) .

The company plans to establish similar clinics at all of its US locations over the next two years.

“Our health and well-being is an extremely important part of all of our lives,” Holt said. “Our goal with these family health centers is to ensure that people benefiting from our health plan can access high-quality, personalized and affordable health services. Many standard services are free when employees visit the family health center, and if there is a cost, it is usually very low. Employees can use money from their health savings account or payroll deduction to cover the bill.

Dot Foods is the largest food industry redistributor in North America. It transports 125,000 products from 1,000 manufacturers in the food industry.

The Modesto Distribution Center opened in 1995.
