Ruiz Foods Opens Third On-Site Employee Health Center

Ruiz Foods

Ruiz Food Products opened an on-site health center – the company’s third – for insured employees and their covered family members Feb. 12 at its plant in Dinuba, California. 

In late 2023, the company opened similar centers at its plants in Florence, South Carolina, and Denison, Texas.

The Ruiz Foods Health Center, operated by CareATC, provides access to primary care, including lab tests, chronic health services and generic prescription medications at no additional cost. It is staffed by a physician, nurse practitioner and two medical assistants.

“Having on-site healthcare with no additional cost or co-pay is important to the entire Ruiz Foods family,” said Kimberli Carroll, president and CEO. “The convenience of an on-site health center is proven to improve team member health, while lowering the cost of care for team members and the company. 

“We hope Ruiz Foods team members will appreciate that our health centers will intentionally schedule longer appointments than standard clinics, so our healthcare professionals have more time to answer questions and improve employee health.”

“Access to quality health care is an important component to a quality job here in Tulare County. The opening of this on-site health center shows the deep commitment that Ruiz Foods has to its team members” said Adam Peck, executive director of the county’s workforce investment board. 

“Ruiz Foods is an essential member of the Tulare County community and this shows their continued commitment to improving the lives of the people who work here and their families.”
