SafeWorks Illinois provides comprehensive occupational health services and return-to-work programs to create safe, drug-free businesses and industries. Our ultimate goal is to promote wellness in the workplace.
We achieve results by developing prevention programs and providing injury treatment and rehabilitation services to help the employee recover, rehabilitate and return to work. We have extensive experience helping businesses reduce injuries, lower costs and promote a safe work environment.
Each business is unique, which is why we develop customized solutions to meet our individual client’s need. We serve businesses of all sizes. From the small mom-and-pop companies to large business and industries, we can provide a comprehensive occupational medicine solution. We realize the importance of your employees’ good health, as well as the need for your employees’ timely return to work following a work-related injury. It is our goal to return each employee to work as soon as possible and at the same time, keep you informed regarding the employee’s medical condition and work status.
We believe that providing an integrated model that spans injury prevention, early return-to-work programs and aggressive work injury case management, is a proactive approach to workforce productivity, as opposed to simply reacting to injuries as they occur. Our providers will visit your business or plant to ensure they have a good understanding of the critical job demands. This knowledge of your workplace will provide added value to both a thorough post-job-offer screening process and a work injury treatment plan.
However, on the job injuries do occur, and when they happen, we are prepared to usher your employee through the entire process from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation and return-to-work. Through our unique hub-and-spoke network with ancillary referral specialists, SafeWorks Illinois is frequently able to do the extraordinary, more often than not scheduling applicable injured patients for surgery consultations within 24 hours of our initial medical intervention. Dr. Fletcher and SafeWorks Illinois’ close-knit relationships with orthopedic and spine surgeons, general and reconstructive surgeons, and interventional pain management specialists allow SafeWorks Illinois to assume a “gatekeeper” patient care role, with the over-arching goal of a rapid return to work. Too often patients can get lost within the system, which results in patients failing to receive the care they need, while exponentially increasing Workers’ Compensation costs. SafeWorks Illinois and Dr. Fletcher’s methodology consists of “Fast-Track” aggressive case management to prevent such instances from occurring. And because we are independently owned, and not part of a corporate medical giant, we can work with our patients to refer to the best providers for their particular situation while still maintaining a continuity of care.
