Franciscan Saint Elizabeth Health and Unity Healthcare are partnering with a Delphi employer to open an on-site clinic. Indiana Packers Corporation has about 2,000 employees.

The company hopes to cut down on health care costs by offering the clinic to workers and their dependents, a number that approaches 4,300 people. It will focus on primary care services with preventive screenings and wellness education.

A lab and pharmacy are included in the facility, which is scheduled to open in December. It will operate eight hours each day from Monday through Friday and four hours Saturday.

Indiana Packers Corporation is a processor of pork products with a current daily production capacity of 16,800 hogs.
