Occupational Health

The WorkCare Solution

Managing occupational health is a big job for a business of any type or size. Your needs are constantly changing, the challenges are never-ending, and the costs seem to always be increasing.

Worker’s compensation is a tough circle and it is all too easy to get stuck in the cycle. National statistics reflect a consistent improvement in industrial safety records, but no correlation with decreasing medical costs. You want to make good health care decisions for your employees, but you need to keep your business healthy at the same time.

Southern Illinois Healthcare established WorkCare to break the cycle. We can’t change the system, but we have developed methods to make the system work for you.
