Grand Rapids, MI — A fourth generation, family owned and operated business, Roskam Baking Company has been making delicious bakery products and snacks since 1923. From quality ingredients to delivery and pricing, the organization’s core philosophy of standards and service revolve around value. To support this commitment, Roskam enlisted CareATC, a leading employee population health management provider, to better manage chronic (and pre-chronic) conditions in its employee pool and increase prevention efforts.
Partnering with CareATC, Roskam joins a shared-site clinic network to provide participants direct and easy access to high-quality primary care with issues such as chronic disease management, no-cost lab orders, medication prescriptions, acute/sick visits, allergy and asthma treatment, and tobacco cessation.
