American Family Care (AFC) has been helping thousands of people, young and old, stay healthy in communities across the country since 1982, with expertise that addresses a variety of needs. But did you know that when you open an AFC clinic in your community, you’ll be able to help local employers keep their employees healthy with a suite of important occupational healthcare services? It’s just one of the many ways your urgent care center will become an indispensable resource as you leverage our business model to take advantage of a recession-resistant industry.
Employers have businesses to run, which means they can’t afford to have their employees sidelined by occupational health testing and screening, injuries, or other health concerns. Fortunately for them, every AFC clinic keeps extended and weekend hours, making us a convenient, easy-to-use healthcare partner.
As an AFC provider of occupations health support, you can take pride in your ability to offer:
· Medical surveillance exams
· Lab testing
· Return-to-work exams
· Wellness physical exams
· Pulmonary function testing
· Vision screening
· And much more!
Keeping the employees in your community available for work and in good health is no small responsibility. But it’s a whole lot easier to manage when you’ve got a comprehensive suite of occupational healthcare services to rely on.
Medical Exams for Commercial Drivers
Many jobs require getting a Department of Transportation (DOT) or pre-employment physical, making it essential for potential employees to have access to healthcare services that can meet this prerequisite. Your AFC urgent care center will be able to do just that.
Our DOT physicals are performed by a Certified Medical Examiner who follows a strict process that includes:
· Checking blood pressure
· Examining eyes and ears
· Performing a neurological exam
· Listening to your heart and lungs
· Conducting a urinalysis
· And much more
Your clinic’s pre-employment physicals will cover much of the same and allow potential employees to rest easier, knowing this important first step toward a job they may really want or need has been taken care of by experts.
Your Community’s Workers’ Compensation Provider
No one wants to see an injury on the job, but if that happens, choosing the right healthcare provider is of the utmost importance to both employer and employee. Your AFC clinic will be staffed by experienced professionals who make returning an injured employee safely and quickly back to work their top priority, streamlining:
· The treatment process
· Essential communication
· Follow-up appointments
· Record keeping
· Referral management
· And more
