WGAT Celebrates 60th Anniversary, Opening of New Oxnard Health and Wellness Center with Open House Series

Western Growers Assurance Trust celebrates 60 years of leadership in offering quality health care options to the agricultural community with a series of open house events in each of its four Cedar Health and Wellness Centers. The open houses will take place from May 9-12, 2017 in Salinas, Watsonville, Santa Maria and their newest location in Oxnard.

The Cedar Health and Wellness Centers offer benefits to farm workers and agribusiness employees including same day appointments, bilingual care and quality care options with lower copays than standard health plans. Health services also include immunizations, preventive routine checkups, health screenings, first aid and pediatric care for children two years and older.

The Cedar Health and Wellness Centers in Salinas, Santa Maria and Watsonville will be hosting open houses to reintroduce themselves to the business community since opening their doors. In an effort to further provide access to health services for ag workers, Watsonville has added radiology services, while Salinas and Santa Maria have moved to bigger facilities to accommodate more clients. In February, WGAT opened its newest Cedar Health and Wellness Center in Oxnard and will have an official ribbon cutting during its open house.

Agriculture employers and their employees in the local communities are invited to the following open houses, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in:

  • Salinas – Tuesday, May, 9 [951 Blanco Circle, Suite F in Salinas]
  • Watsonville – Wednesday, May 10 [150 Carnation Drive, Suite 5 in Freedom]
  • Santa Maria – Thursday, May 11 [525 E. Plaza Drive, Suite 302 in Santa Maria]
  • Oxnard – Friday, May 12 [650 Hobson Way, Suite 207 in Oxnard]

All attendees will receive a guided tour, light refreshments, and a chance to win an Apple watch (for employers) and a new bike (for employees). Employees may also receive a complimentary health screening during the open house hours.
