DeKalb Medical Occupational Medicine Group Rebrands Its Practices
June 19, 2013
To create a more cohesive identity and emphasis on its specialty of preventing and treating work-related injuries and illnesses, DeKalb Medical Occupational Medicine Group is pleased to announce it has changed the names of its practices formerly known as FamilyCare Decatur and Hillandale Occupational Medicine. The practices are now known as WorksWell Clinic at North Decatur and WorksWell Clinic at Hillandale.
DeKalb Medical Occupational Medicine Group’s physicians and staff remain the same, as well as its clients, who were informed this week of the name change.
“Employers are looking to us as a health care partner with the expertise, focus on quality, and continuity of services to support them in achieving the highest level of business performance through healthier, safer, more productive employees,” said Dr. Shealynn Buck, Executive Director of Employee Health Solutions, DeKalb Medical’s umbrella service line that includes the Occupational Medicine Group. “This rebranding reflects DeKalb Medical’s commitment to providing the highest level of service and programs to employers and employees in our community.”
Since 1992, DeKalb Medical has provided occupational medicine services to employers in DeKalb County and surrounding communities. The two walk-in WorksWell Clinics are strategically located within close proximity of its North Decatur and Hillandale hospital emergency rooms, providing 24-hour-a-day support for injury care.
The clinics have built a reputation for occupational health and safety expertise, rapid outcomes and well-coordinated injury case management. Physicians and practice managers are Medical Provider Workers’ Compensation Professional (MPWCP) certified by Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
“Building on a strong occupational medicine foundation, our interdisciplinary team of specialists is dedicated to delivering to employers a cohesive, comprehensive portfolio of services to meet their ever-changing employee health needs,” Buck said.
