Some Worker Care FAQs

We get a lot of questions about what we do and how we’re different than all the other occupational medicine clinics out there, so we thought we’d take a moment to clear some things up.

At Worker Care, we understand the importance of keeping your employees at their most productive, so you’ll be glad to know that we offer a unique range of on-site medical services, all designed to keep your employees healthy and working.

With that in mind, here’s some answers to the most common questions we get from employers:

How do you communicate with me about my employee’s injury and work status?

After we complete an examination, we’ll establish a diagnosis and medical treatment plan. Then, one of our staff will contact you to report your employee’s work status and answer any of your questions.

Do you just automatically give my employee time off?

Only when absolutely necessary. We have a very aggressive Back-to-Work policy, and will do everything we can to make sure your employee can get back to work as quickly as possible. We can often release your employee to modified duty, and we will never take them off work unless medically necessary.

Do you perform surgery?

Our providers can perform minor surgery, such as repairing lacerations. For many injuries, we are your one-stop medical center, saving you time and money by not having to send your employee to a bunch of specialists all over town.

Are you a local company, or some giant medical corporation?

We take great pride in being founded here in Yakima, and have been fortunate to be able to expand our services to Sunnyside and Pasco as well. Our providers have more than 30 years of occupational medicine experience, with a stable staff that has been with us for many years.

What services can you provide at my facility?

For your convenience, our staff can come directly to your location to provide drug and alcohol screenings, mask fittings, and many types of vaccinations.

We hope this answers some of your questions, but please never hesitate to give us a call if you need anything. We can customize many of our services to fit your company’s needs, no matter how large or small you are. We pride ourselves on living by having the same goals as our customers: efficiency, timeliness and direct communication, all while we administer the kind of exceptional healthcare that will get your staff back to work quickly and safely.
