QuadMed, a nationwide leader in employer-sponsored healthcare solutions,
christened its newest onsite employer healthcare center at the corporate
headquarters of Safeway Inc. in Pleasanton, CA.

The new Safeway Healthpointe Center is a state-of-the-art primary care clinic
that uses a patient-centered model to provide holistic care focused on
wellness and prevention. QuadMed, a subsidiary of global printer
Quad/Graphics, will operate the center with an integrated approach involving
coordinated coaching, case management and condition management. An expansion
of Safeway’s previous health center, the new center is a full-service medical
facility staffed by a team of medical professionals.

Quad/Graphics Chairman, President & CEO Joel Quadracci and QuadMed President
Tim Dickman joined Safeway Chairman and CEO Steve Burd, Executive Vice
President Larree Renda and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kent Bradley for a
ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Healthpointe Center on October 4. The center,
which will serve Safeway employees and their dependents in the Pleasanton
area, will host several tours and events during October and begin patient-care
appointments in November.

“Safeway is committed to creating an environment that enables and supports a
long-term culture of health,” said Mr. Burd. “With the introduction of the
Healthpointe Center we now provide an innovative and personalized healthcare
experience,” he told Safeway employees gathered for the ribbon-cutting. “The
Healthpointe Center allows us to expand our employee health services and
provide a private and professional space to serve your health needs.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Safeway. It’s been our pleasure to help
transform the previous health center into a full-service medical facility,”
said Mr. Dickman. “Providing a holistic, patient-focused healthcare approach
is our main objective. The Healthpointe Center will go beyond traditional
medical practice and follow a patient-centered medical home model where the
primary-care physician will work with the care team to customize and
coordinate ongoing care.”

Safeway employees and their families will be able to take advantage of the
Healthpointe Center for a wide range of routine, preventive, urgent and
wellness healthcare services, including:

  *Preventive care, such as physical exams or immunizations;
  *Illness treatment (cold, flu, rash, etc.);
  *Injury treatment (stitches, sprains);
  *Chronic condition and disease management (asthma, diabetes, high blood
  *Health and wellness coaching (weight loss, smoking cessation); and
  *Coordination with specialty healthcare providers.
