Reaping the Benefits: Focusing on Health and Wellness
For Glen Raven, Inc. employees, one of the biggest perks may be the free corporate-funded health clinics the company offers employees, their spouses and dependents 18 and older. Offered in partnership with Cone Health Employee Health & Wellness providers, the clinics serve hundreds working at diverse facilities, including the corporate office as well as a warehouse, transportation center and manufacturing plants, located in Burlington, Burnsville or Norlina, N.C.
“Since 2009 Glen Raven and ARMC/Cone Health have partnered to provide on-site medical services and support to our associates,” said Leib Oehmig, Chief Operating Officer. “The clinical staff skillfully and compassionately cares for the health and well-being of their patients and works tirelessly with company leadership to support our commitment to our associates.”
“Glen Raven is extremely forward-thinking when it comes to the health of their employees and qualified dependents,” affirmed Wanda Smith, MPH, BSN, RN, COHNS, FAAOHN, Cone Health’s Systemwide Manager Employee Health & Wellness Contract Services. Glen Raven’s three free North Carolina health clinics are staffed by Cone Health employees, including three nurse practitioners, two occupational health nurses and a parttime registered dietician. Together, they offer acute care, chronic disease management and annual health risk assessments, including blood work, to inform healthy lifestyles and ongoing care plans. In October 2015, the clinic serving the corporate headquarters was re-opened in a new location next to the company’s free fitness facility.

“I am fortunate to lead an organization where our employees are our #1 priority, and our commitment to them shows in everything we do,” concluded Leib Oehmig, Chief Operating Officer. “The clinical staff goes above and beyond every day in every interaction to support our commitment to our employees.”
