Workers Compensation Care

Meridian Urgent Care is dedicated to keeping your employees safe, healthy and productive.

Meridian Urgent Care offers affordable and timely management of initial workers’ compensation injuries and continued care. We will return each employee to work as soon as possible and keep your company and work comp carrier informed regarding the employees’ condition and work status. We also refer patients to long term occupational care providers when necessary.

Meridian Urgent Care provides same day service, does not require an appointment and is a perfect alternative to a hospital emergency room when an employee experiences a non-life threatening injury or illness. Our focus is on initial injuries that require care after hours or on weekends.

Communication

Our on-site work comp coordinator serves as a liaison between patients, referral sources and employers and keeps all parties up-to-date on an employee’s return-to-work-process.

As an employer, you can be sure that we will adhere to your company’s workers’ compensation procedures, communicate in a timely manner to your company and third-party administration, develop individual treatment plans for employees, and coordinate outside referrals and testing services as needed.

Workers Compensation Focus:


best medical care possible.We are well versed in workers compensation care, and understand the importance of getting your employee back to work as soon as possible to minimize lost productive days. Over 95% of injured workers seen at our clinic return to work the same day as their initial visit, either on full or limited duty.

We are preferred providers for a number of workers compensation programs. Our reputation with their providers gives you peace of mind knowing that your employees are being cared for by physicians who clearly understand the nuances of industrial medicine.

Your employees won't have long wait times at our clinics: 95% of initial visits take less that 90 minutes, and follow-up visits routinely take less that 30 minutes.

Our staff is skilled at case management for difficult and complicated injuries. When a difficult injury is presented to us, which doesn't improve as expected, or which needs specialty care, our doctors and staff are knowledgeable in referring your employee to specialists who routinely care for workers compensation patients and can offer the best service.

If one of your employees arrives at any of our clinics with an injury or illness that our staff feels is too serious for the clinic setting, we will send that patient to the hospital for emergency care.

All of this and more makes Meridian Urgent Care the best resource for workers compensation care.
