LP Opens Clinic for Employees

On Monday, March 21st, after almost a year in the making, LP Building Solutions opened the LP Health and Wellness Center for em­ployees, as well as for their spouses and de­pendants. Hosted in the Hahn Building at 709 23rd Ave, Two Harbors, the LP Health and Wellness Center will allow “greater flex­ibility for employees and their families to schedule and receive care,” says LP Build­ing Solutions Senior Specialist in Corporate Communications Colby Wilson.

LP Health and Wellness Center started as a corporate initiative to provide another bene­fit to employees. LP contracted a third party, Premise Health, to provide healthcare, mak­ing the clinic completely independent. A mo­bile app to schedule appointments and a 24/7 telemedicine service helps make the clinic convenient to families.

LP estimates that the clinic will see approx­imately fifteen visits a month. The required yearly health risk assessment physical exam (HRA) can be provided by the clinic, and LP estimates that 75%-95% of employees will take their HRA through the clinic. Currently, there are 140 employees at the Two Harbors LP mill. With that number, plus spouses and dependents, the clinic will have a good client base.

The clinic will cover many health and wellness needs, including treatments for flus, colds, ear infections, and other minor ailments. Labs can be done on site. Mental health concerns and counseling options are available. Virtual and in-person appointments are offered, and the staff consists of a doctor via telehealth and an in-person RN. LP’s company purpose is “Building a better world”, and this clinic will hopefully help to build a better world for its employees.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
