If I worked in the judicial system I would feel duty bound to adhere to the innocent until proven guilty doctrine. As an ordinary system I feel I can pass judgement on this any time I want - just as I am NOT duty bound to agree with the decision rendered by a jury a.k.a. OJ Simpson.

Because they are not interested in a debate. Their goal is to brow beat any opposition into just shutting up. If you are against anything they are for you are either a racist, a bigot, a homophobe, a wife beater or a child killer. It will get worse. As these tactics become less successful they will go to even more extreme measures. You can't disagree with anything they say and still be a decent…

Yeah, that's an affliction that solely affects only ONE side of the political conversation in this country, right? Never heard terms like "libtards" and "Dumbocrats" and other childish nonsense? Be wary of casting those stones.

What's weird is some species are transexual---changing their sexual proclivities mid-life--or hermaphrodite, but no rampant homosexual species. But then, a dog will hump your leg with vigor........wonder where that fits in?

The state *is* supposed to exclude. They just can't do so in a way that discriminates against a suspect class (like when some states banned interracial marriage) or in a way that violates a fundamental right without a compelling state interest for doing so (interracial marriage and now gay marriage). The state interests in recognizing marriages include easier distribution of wealth upon the…

Knapheide Family Wellness Center to open Monday

Knapheide Family Wellness Center to open Monday

10 months, 3 weeks ago by

Clinic will serve more than 1,250 Knapheide employees and their families

The Knapheide Manufacturing Company will be opening its family wellness clinic on Monday, August 18 at 331 South 36th Street in Quincy.  

The wellness center will provide medical services to Knapheide employees and their families on the company’s health care plan.

“Healthcare and the wellness of our employees and their families is very important to us,” Bo Knapheide, Sr. Vice President of Distributor and Fleet Operations said.  

Currently, Knapheide employees more than 1,250 people in the tri-state area and have more than 2,600 people on the company’s health care plan.  

“In 2013, The Knapheide Company and our employees spent over 9.3 million dollars for healthcare, and those costs continue to increase,” Jim Rubottom, VP of Human Resources said.   “Employers have had to respond by raising employee premiums and redesigning benefits that increase deductibles, co-pays and other out of pocket costs to employees,” he added.  “It is exciting to be opening a primary care wellness center at no cost to our employees and their dependents,” Rubottom said.   

The clinic will be open five days a week.   All services in the wellness center - primary care, urgent care, annual physicals, laboratory services, health and wellness screenings, chronic condition management, disease education, lifestyle coaching, patient advocacy, and more - will be free to Knapheide employees and their families on the health plan.  

“By utilizing our wellness center, we can be proactive in addressing healthcare needs quicker by breaking down barriers that may be keeping people from accessing the appropriate providers,” Rubottom said. 

To offer this service to employees, Knapheide has partnered with WeCare TLC.  WeCare TLC is a medical management firm that develops and operates on-site and near-site primary care clinics for employers and other health plan sponsors, across the country.  Currently, they manage more than 40 clinics nationwide.  An employer sponsored clinic is the first of its kind in Quincy and the first operated by WeCare TLC in the state of Illinois.    

“Knapheide has envisioned an employee health clinic for 20 years. We are proud that they have partnered with WeCare TLC and we look forward to bringing their vision to fruition,” said Judy Garber, RN, WeCare TLC’s President and Co-founder.

“Employers are finding that this type of healthcare model can actually reduce their healthcare costs, which makes this a win-win for our employees and for us as a company,” Rubottom said.

“As we look to the future, it is vital that quality healthcare is accessible and affordable,” Bo Knapheide said.
