Ensuring your employees’ health and well-being is important for business success. Occupational health, also known as occupational medicine, helps businesses promote a safe and productive workplace. At Texas MedClinic Urgent Care, we provide occupational health services with the goal of offering complete medical care to employees when and where they need it, providing peace of mind for employers.

Occupational health focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. It encompasses a wide range of medical services that protect the health and safety of employees while minimizing risks in the workplace. From conducting regulatory evaluations to providing medical care for workplace injuries, our occupational health services help to ensure compliance with workplace health and safety regulations.
