Healthcare a Top Priority for Paul Johnson Drywall

Earlier this year, Paul Johnson Drywall (PJD) made health insurance available to every single employee. An important piece of this initiative involves enhancing preventive health services for our crews.

Last week we hosted our first free job site health screening with Redirect Health, our new health care provider. Thanks to the Redirect Health’s mobile health screening program, every crew member working at a North Phoenix job site had the opportunity to receive a free health screening with a Redirect Health doctor.

“Everyone is really glad to be here and getting checked and appreciates the care our new health program is providing,” said Miguel Sanchez, superintendent with PJD. “They made it very easy on us by coming out to the job site.”

While many of our people are in great shape and received a clean bill of health, several mentioned they had not been to the doctor in many years and underlying issues were identified. Those who needed it received the medical attention they needed, and are on the path to living a healthier life. Being proactive has already paid off for our people!

“Paul Johnson Drywall really cares about its employees,” said Noe Morels, project superintendent with PJD. “These job site health screenings are going to be really effective and positive way to connect our people with a physician. Everyone here is appreciative of this opportunity today and other jobs will be pleased as well.”

Redirect Health offers customized health-care programs for the construction industry. Compliance with the Affordable Care Act is challenging for some subcontractors, but through collaboration, PJD and Redirect Health were able to establish a program that is affordable, and prioritizes the care of employees so long-term healthcare issues are minimized.

“It’s comforting to know that all of our employees are under the care of a physician and those who need help are addressing their health issues,” said Cole Johnson, president of PJD. “I appreciate the idea that we can keep our employees healthy through programs like this and provide a platform for them to access care when they need it.”
