SSM Health to Operate Retail Clinics at 27 St. Louis Area Walgreens Locations Walgreens and SSM Health have signed an agreement to expand their relationship, through which SSM Health will own and operate the clinical practice and management of operations of 27 retail health clinics within Walgreens stores across St. Louis, including four clinics in Illinois. The clinics will transition to SSM Health this fall, at which time the clinics will become an extension of the SSM Health Medical Group. Upon transition, the sites will be renamed SSM Health Express Clinic at Walgreens. Walgreens will continue to manage the existing Walgreens Healthcare Clinics in these locations until that time. SSM Health Express Clinic at Walgreens give consumers improved access to the compassionate, high-quality care provided by SSM Health. “This collaboration is an important step in SSM Health’s commitment to improving the health of our community,” said James Bleicher, MD, regional president of the SSM Health Medical Group, ambulatory services in St. Louis. “By combining the convenience of Walgreens locations with the personalized care and expertise of SSM Health Medical Group, we will provide a seamless health care experience for our patients. This means care that is truly integrated whether you visit an SSM Health physician, hospital, urgent care or Express Clinic at Walgreens.”

As part of the agreement, Walgreens & SSM Health will form a joint council to share best practices, experiences that improve patient care, quality and satisfaction while reducing health care costs. “Today’s announcement is yet another example of how providers can work together to help improve population health while helping to ensure a continuum of care for patients in the community,” said Pat Carroll, MD, chief medical officer for Walgreens Healthcare Clinics. “This also demonstrates the value of deeper health system collaborations which can facilitate transition of retail health clinics from urgent, episodic care to coordinated care.” Walgreens is a provider of pharmacy services for SSM Health patients and employees and the two organizations will explore opportunities to integrate other Walgreens services as part of the broader collaboration. SSM Health Express Clinics at Walgreens will operate seven days a week, including evenings, which gives patients the option to access a variety of health care services without an appointment.

Construction Impacts of Route 141 at I-44 Design-Build Project Construction impacts from this project are expected to be fairly limited. Most of the work on Route 141 will take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. or between 6 p.m. and 5 a.m. The work on the north outer road portions of the project will experience the most impact to traffic, but this will not significantly impact traffic on Rte. 141 or I-44. There are two closures on the outer road, each for three months, which will require a detour.

CONGRATS!

Administrative Assistant, Betty Rottler, recently celebrated 7 Years with the FACC Betty is an important piece of the Chamber Staff (and yes, sometimes the glue that holds us all together) so join us in thanking her for all that she does at the Chamber Office and at all of our events! Happy Anniversary, Betty!

MoDOT anticipates that the connection to the north outer road west of Route 141 will be closed between January and March 2017. The connection to the north outer road east of Route 141 will be closed between March and June 2017. Project completion expected July 2018.  June 2016 - Construction begins  January—March 2017 - Northbound Rte. 141     

Congratulations, 2016 Scholarship Recipients! Each year, the Fenton Area Chamber of Commerce awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors who reside in the 63026 zip code and plan to attend a college, university, technical or trade school. Since 1987, the Fenton Chamber has awarded more than $260,000 in scholarship funds to local high school seniors. This year’s recipients are: From Rockwood Summit High School: Joel Crumrine, Taylor Dedic, Kayla Drake, Shannon Griffin, Austin Henry, Abigail Phillips, Kevin Schmidt, Jack Welker; From Northwest High School: Katherine Meyer; from Ursuline Academy: Caroline Adams; From Cor Jesu Academy: Gabrielle Picard; and from Lindbergh High School: Natalie Schodl.

MODOT MAKES 3-WAY STOP ON RIVER ROAD Missouri Department of Transportation has added stop signs to a section of the I-44 outer road in Fenton. The department installed signs in both directions to Yarnell Road (aka River Road) at the intersection with Rudder Road. This change is due to the history of crashes at the intersection and the sight distance along Yarnell Road. For more information, contact MoDOT Customer Service: (314) 275-1500 or www.modot.org/stlouis.

Scholarship recipients will be recognized at July’s Membership Luncheon on Wed. July 6th at Andre’s West—211 South Old Highway 141—at which we will present them with their awards. Please join us at this special luncheon, along with the high school seniors and their families, to recognize the outstanding achievements of these scholars.

LEAVE “BUFFER TIME” IN BETWEEN TASKS When we rush from task to task, it can be difficult to appreciate what we’re doing and to stay focused and motivated. Allowing ourselves down-time between tasks can be a breath of fresh air for our brains. While taking a break, go for a short walk, or do a mind-clearing exercise.

Energizing STEM Education and American Ingenuity Article in St. Louis Business Journal - Written by: Jim Curran, Electrical Connection Each year, hundreds apply to IBEW/NECA Electrical Industry Training Center, but a growing number fail to earn acceptance into the program due to deficiencies in STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and math. Ten years ago, about five percent failed to meet our qualifications. Today, it’s 15 percent. That’s alarming because the projects we complete today are becoming more complex.

Local One and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). So, it’s easy to understand why the IBEW/NECA has tasked its Electrical Connection labor-management partnership to help schools and civic organizations energize STEM education. For more than seven years, the Electrical Connection has engaged more than 9,000 students in how STEM subjects translate into electrical careers.

Just take a look at IKEA, for example. It is not just a retail store. It’s a retail store with Missouri’s largest rooftop solar array, with 4,085 solar panels, enough to power 169 homes. It is a store lit with 100 percent energy-saving LEDs and infused with automation to efficiently operate lighting and environmental controls. Nearby, Shriners Hospital contains specialized health care infrastructure including voice, data, nurse call systems, access control, security, television, fire alarms and wireless access. Data center cabling has become extraordinarily specialized to increase transmission speed. The newly-expanded GM plant in Wentzville relies on intricate process controls to operate advanced robotics in auto manufacturing.

Nowhere was this more evident than at this year’s Partners for Progress of Greater St. Charles STEM recognition breakfast, honoring 18 high achievers in STEM education in St. Charles County high schools. The program united the engineering ingenuity at the GM Wentzville plant with the high level of electrical skills required to power and integrate its manufacturing operations. Just a week later, the Electrical Connection was one of the key sponsors of the three-day St. Louis FIRST Robotics regional competition at Chaifetz Arena.

All of these projects were delivered by members of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW)

Pacesetter Partnership

Edward Jones—Sean C. King

The Electrical Connection’s support of STEM not only cultivates workforce development, but idea generation that is the foundation of a robust entrepreneurial future for St. Louis and Missouri. It is every bit as important to nurture the ideas that our IBEW/NECA workforce will ultimately build.

Last fall at a Fenton Chamber luncheon, Circle of Concern Executive Director, Cyndi Miller, and, owner of Organization In Bloom, Terry Capehart, made an important connection. Terry explained that her St. Louis Chapter of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) would like to donate time to help Circle of Concern with any organizing that they might need. Cyndi, of course, agreed and a date was set! Armed with containers in hand, Terry and six others helped at Circle of Concern, in the kitchen, mail, supply and multipurpose rooms, making them neat and orderly. Terry noted that many of the volunteers who stopped by were happy to see improvements and loved the labels!

Do you have a story to share? Email kellyo@fentonmochamber.com

The ladies from NAPO were amazing to work with. They were super efficient, working independently throughout the day, but quietly checking in with us on various projects to get our feedback, too. Our mailroom, kitchen and all-purpose rooms are now beautifully organized and labeled, ensuring that we can quickly find what we’re looking for; maintaining order will be as simple as reading the labeled shelves and putting items in their appropriate places. What a blessing to our staff and volunteers! Cyndi

Small Business Owners Not Aware of New Federal Overtime Rules, Impact on Payroll U.S. Department of Labor is expected to release a new overtime rule in May that could have a big impact on small business payrolls. The pending FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) update will raise the annual salary floor for overtime-exempt, salaried employees from $23,660 to $48,000 or above (the final figure is expected in May).

“This is an area where the exposure can be great, even if you only have a few employees,” Kirila warned. Federal wage and hour laws apply to all employers with more than $500,000 gross annual sales.

That means small companies with salaried employees like assistant managers or office administrators face a tough choice: Meet the higher minimum salary, or switch certain employees to hourly pay with overtime. Employers will have 30, possibly 60, days after the rule change takes effect to comply. These rules will likely surprise small employers, most of whom report a lack of clarity around overtime regulations in general.

“The revenue amount is so low that you might as well assume that you’re covered [by the rules] if you have one employee,” Kirila said. Your risk of audit goes up with the number of staff members that you employ.

In a new Manta poll, 51% of small business owners said they didn’t know whether their salaried employees were exempt from overtime pay under current federal rules. Fifty-two percent said they were unaware of the pending changes to overtime regulations. Among respondents, 44% said they employ both hourly and salaried staff. Small businesses that pay managers or administrative staff a salary (with no overtime) will likely see a jump in payroll when the rule change goes into effect, said Jill Kirila, partner and employment law attorney. Current weekly minimum for salaried, overtime-exempt employees is $455; that will increase to $921 per week for most fulltime salaried workers when the rule changes. Unfortunately, “regulations that help determine whether an employee is exempt or not is a big code, like the tax code,” Kirila said. “This is where lots of employers have issues, because the regulations are still pretty old and don’t speak to the modern workforce.” Small employers may misclassify employees as exempt just because they receive a salary and perform nonmanual work. For example, many employers believe secretaries, assistant managers and other admin pros are exempt from overtime pay because of the “white collar” nature of their work, but those positions often fail to meet overtime exemption standards set by the Dept. of Labor.

Committed Member

Employers audited by the Dept. of Labor will have to pay back-pay if they are found in violation. Employers who are sued by disgruntled employees have to pay back-pay and the employee’s attorney fees if they lose in court. “That’s where the real teeth are for a small employer. Even one of these suits can far exceed the back-pay,” Kirila said. When companies grow to 15+ employees, Kirila said that it is crucial to have good policies in place for correctly classifying employees as ineligible or eligible for overtime pay. “As you grow, it will become more complicated. The sooner you can have great wage and hour policies in place, the better.” Small businesses can reduce their risk by taking at least one of the following steps to ensure they are compliant: ► Check the status of salaried employees in the FLSA Overtime Security Advisor on Dept. of Labor website. This portal will walk you through tests for different types of employees—administrative, outside sales, professionals—to check on their overtime status. ► Conduct an audit. Kirila’s firm, Squire Patton Boggs, conducts employee audits in order to identify wage and hour issues. ► If you’re a growing company or already have 15+ employees, you may want to retain a labor and employment lawyer to steer you through complex FLSA wage and overtime regulations.

A Message From…

Mayor Polizzi City of Fenton Dear Chamber Members, Since my last column, we received the news that Linda McLaughlin’s body had been found, nearly a year after her disappearance. She, although not a member of the FACC, was a business owner in the City of Fenton. While the ending is a sad one, I hope her family, friends, and acquaintances find solace in the fact that she has been found, and they can now start the healing process. Some good news! At the Planning & Zoning meeting on May 3rd, the construction of the first building on the former Chrysler site – now known as “Fenton Logistics Park” - was approved. The building is more than 150,000 square feet. While it has no tenant yet, progress is being made! Each Tuesday in May and June, I am “Tracking the Trails” in Fenton! It is a short, low-impact walk, and will last approximately one hour. On June 7th, we will be “Tracking the Trails” with Mayor Mike AND the Fenton Area Chamber of Commerce! We will meet at 5:30pm at the small parking lot under Highway 30 on Larkin Williams Road, and will return about forty-five minutes later to the nearby pavilion for light refreshments provided by ABF Security. There will be an invitation on the FACC website where you may sign up. Hope to see you there!

Mayor Mike Registration for this event is available via the Fenton Chamber website at fentonmochamber.com or call the Chamber Office at 636-717-0200! Committed Member
