Excel Urgent Care is committed to providing top quality and prompt medical care to you and your employees. Services we provide are as follows:
1) PHYSICAL EXAMS, PREPLACEMENT AND ROUTINE
Some of the benefits of pre-placement evaluations include:
- Appropriate pairing of the applicant to the occupational requirements of the job.
- Discovery of health condition(s) that may place the safety or health of the applicant or others at risk.
- A basis for determining needs in the area of reasonable accommodation (for example, sensory aids, special work stations, additional devices, relocation of a workstation, and/or special parking).
- A baseline of health status so future measurements can determine whether any workplace exposures have proven detrimental to the employee's health.
- Knowledge of family health problems so counsel (EAP/Employee Assistance Program) can be provided, which can help reduce periods of employee absence, stress, or decreased productivity.
- A basis for relationship with the employee's supervisors regarding potential emergency situations (for example, insulin-dependent diabetes, convulsive disorders).
- Compliance with state or local statutory requirements for certain job categories, such as primary education and health care.
