Wayne Health and Detroit Chassis Partner to Improve Preventive Care

The Wayne Health Mobile Unit and Detroit Chassis LLC, a Detroit-based automotive supplier, are partnering in a program to improve the health of Detroit Chassis employees and their families through regular, on-site primary and preventive health services.

The new relationship kicks off Aug. 24 with an event bringing a series of free health screenings, COVID-19 testing and vaccines, and community health resources to the Detroit Chassis Plant at 6501 Lynch Rd. in Detroit.

Ford Motor Co. was instrumental in the two Detroit-based organizations coming together. Detroit Chassis is a Ford supplier, and Ford is a partner in Wayne Health’s mobile health program, providing the custom-fit Transit vehicles used to deliver mobile health services throughout the community.

“By partnering with Detroit Chassis, we have a way of furthering our community health outreach by providing care where people work, not just where they live,” says Dr. Phillip Levy, chief innovation officer at Wayne Health and leader of the mobile health program. “It’s an innovative way of providing ‘care your way, where you work’ for small-to-medium sized businesses, with the long-term goal of improving employee and population health outcomes.”

Owned by Michael and Carlton Guthrie, Detroit Chassis is an automotive manufacturer of niche vehicles, and Ford Brand RV and commercial truck chassis.

“Carlton and I are excited about the opportunity to partner with Ford Motor Co. and Wayne Health to offer easy access to quality, on-site health care to all Detroit Chassis associates,” says Michael Guthrie, co-chairman. “Health, safety, and wellness is a priority. As we prepare for our first event, we anticipate having regular health and wellness events with Wayne Health as part of our benefit plan for our associates and their families.”

The Aug. 24 event will feature blood testing for diabetes, cholesterol, and kidney function; blood pressure screening; COVID-19 testing and vaccines; school immunizations and sports physicals; child wellness exams; HIV screening; behavioral health and patient education resources; and primary care physician referrals. All the services are free-of-charge for participants and insurance is not required. Insurers will be billed for screening tests.
