When it comes to healthcare, the last thing you want is to be treated like a number. We all deserve exceptional, affordable, accessible care administered by a qualified, compassionate staff. Fortunately, Dot has taken that into consideration as we expand the Mt. Sterling Family Health Center (FHC) to help us achieve our goals.
Mt. Sterling Family Health Center Relocation
The FHC will be relocating from its current location at the Red House to 108 West Main Street in Mt. Sterling. This new location is less than a mile from Dot on the first floor of a two-story building that is currently under construction.
Family Health Center Grand Opening
The Mt. Sterling Family Health Center grand opening was held on Monday, February 3 at the new space located at 108 West Main Street. Representatives from the city and Dot employees and their families toured the state-of-the-art facility, which includes four exam rooms, a testing lab, two doctor’s offices, waiting rooms and a rehabilitation center.
“We take a lot of pride in being a family business,” said Matt Holt, Vice President of Human Resources.
“From day one, RT and Dorothy Tracy believed their employees were a part of their family; taking care of our Dot family and their loved ones is a responsibility we take seriously, and a big part of that is providing an exceptional benefits package to our employees. As we celebrate Dot’s 60th anniversary this year, it feels very fitting that we’re opening the Mt. Sterling Family Health Center and taking our health benefits to the next level,” Matt added.
Services Available at the Family Health Center
Beginning February 4, the following expanded services will be available to all Dot Foods and Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI) employees, spouses, and dependents age 3+ enrolled in Dot’s health insurance:
- Biometric screenings with complete lab panel and up to 30-minute consultation
- Condition management for high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol
- Occupational health visits
- Acute care visits

The Family Health Center performs many services at no cost to patients. Basic laboratory services and medication may include a minimal fee. Payment can be made through your Health Savings Account (HSA), payroll deduction, or any major credit card.
