OMAHA, Neb. – Alegent Health is partnering with Lozier Corporation to provide affordable, high-quality health care and wellness opportunities outside of its hospital and clinic walls. Beginning Dec.3, Alegent Health will provide health care services at an on-site clinic for Lozier employees. The cost of the services will be covered by Lozier health insurance and provided free of cost to employees and their family members. Lozier Corporation chose to partner with Alegent Health to provide this unique service due to the company’s interest in promoting employee health and wellness and its strong belief that Alegent Health can provide the necessary support to employees and the company in this effort.

“The good health of our employees and their families is important to us. We are excited about the opportunity to promote their health and wellness, and we look forward to working with Alegent Health on this effort,” said Sheri Andrews, president of Lozier Corporation.

“As health care costs continue to rise, this unique partnership allows us to extend our healing ministry beyond our hospital and clinic walls to Lozier employees and their families and help them keep their health care costs to a minimum. Alegent Health’s presence at Lozier Corporation will not only help reduce employee sickness and injury but also provide them with wellness and health educational opportunities,” said Fred Hosler, M.D., MPA, and senior vice president and chief medical officer of Alegent Health.

Health services the Alegent Health Clinic at Lozier will provide at the on-site medical clinic include primary and urgent care, occupational health, patient education, screenings and health fairs. The clinic will be staffed by a highly trained Alegent Health provider working with employees and their families on preventative and acute care, disease management along with both adult and child immunizations.
