Firestone Natural Rubber employees are living healthier and longer lives than many of their countrymen. This can be attributed in part to the quality health care services offered to employees and their families.
Firestone Natural Rubber Company owns and operates a 300 bed hospital which is regarded as one of the best hospitals in the country. It runs eight additional health facilities and a mobile clinic. The hospital treats an average of 5,700 patients each month.
Firestone Natural Rubber Company partners with UNICEF and the Ministry of Health to store and administer vaccines to protect Liberians from numerous diseases. This vaccine program reaches Firestone employees and residents in the surrounding communities to help improve and extend the lives of all Liberians.
The average life expectancy of a Firestone retiree is 75 years, while the average life expectancy in Liberia for males is 54 years and 57 years for females, according to the World Health Organization.
