Concierge-style occupational medicine provider introduces unique approach to employee health & wellness to Southern Nevada businesses
June 14, 2022 – San Jose, CA – Work Health Solutions, providers of concierge-style occupational medicine for large-scale employers nationwide, announces its expansion to the Las Vegas market with the opening of a new employee health clinic. The company’s “Near-Site” facility is modeled to change the industry by creating an employee-friendly, spa-like experience that feels distinctly different from competing occupational health clinics.
Work Health Solutions offers clients a variety of medical services to build an occupational health care program tailored to a company’s specific needs, while reducing workers’ comp costs and downtime, and improving the overall health of its workforce. Services include workers comp management, OSHA mandated exams (medical surveillance), primary and urgent care, COVID-19 support, preventative injury programs, virtual ergonomic assessments, wellness programs, telehealth, travel medicine, DOT physicals, drug screenings, and more. Programs are administered through three flexible options: On-Site clinics offering medical services at a client’s location, Mobile-Med state-of-the art vans or pop-up clinics, and Near-Site concierge-style employee health clinics.
“Occupational health has taken on new importance since the onset of the pandemic, when employers and employees realized the importance of maintaining a safe work environment to keep a business running. And with Las Vegas growing at a staggering rate, the need for new thinking in the health & wellness space is vital to accommodate an expanding workforce,” said Dr. Letitia Heshmat, Founder and President of Work Health Solutions. “While occupational health is often viewed as “fixing,” we take a different approach and believe in providing proactive care with customized, concierge-style medicine. That is why we opened a location in Las Vegas where we ensure workers feel welcomed and comforted, rather than the typical cold, sterile workers comp clinic where many employees feel like they’re just a number in a crowded waiting room.”
Work Health Solutions is currently working with a number of large-scale resort-casino properties on The Strip. The new Near-Site clinic, centrally located at 2080 East Flamingo Road, marks the company’s first concierge-style employee health clinic to open in Las Vegas, due to the increase in service requests in this area. The original clinic is located near Sacramento, California. The company also specializes in rapid deployment with the ability to set up on-site operations in less than five days in most regions, and is familiar with the unique challenges of working in densely populated areas such as airport and transit facilities, and similar public attractions.
“The ‘great resignation’ has shown that today’s employees will not put up with run-of-mill treatment, and this extends to health care and prevention provided by employers. Taking this line item in a company’s budget and using it as an asset, rather than just listing it among other expenses, can only help to retain and attract employees, who will appreciate their health being taken seriously by management,” added Heshmat.
The Work Health Solutions team is comprised of a group of professionals consisting of medical, legal, HR, operational, and employee health and safety experts. Each member has extensive experience working with academic and research institutions, corporate healthcare, Fortune 25 companies, small government, and local businesses.
Even if an employer does not contract with Work Health Solutions, the Near-Site clinic offers several basic occupational health services to the general public with same day scheduling including Department of Transportation physicals, COVID-19 testing, and pre-hire and random drug testing as a condition for employment.
Work Health Solutions designs customized concierge-style occupational health programs for large-scale employers nationwide. Dedicated to preserving a safe work environment, Work Health Solutions takes a unique approach to employee health and wellness by providing proactive care that brings added value to enterprise-level organizations and its employees.
Work Health Solutions programs are administered through three flexible options: On-Site clinics offering medical services at a client’s location; Mobile-Med state-of-the art vans or pop-up clinics; and Near-Site concierge-style employee health clinics.
