This strategic integration will empower businesses to access specialized care and support when they need it most, reinforcing the commitment to total worker health.
Nic Patee, the president and founder of Work Right NW, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “We know our sole business is injury prevention from a sports medicine perspective. That’s what we focus on and what we do really well. Our desire is to be the very best in that space , but if we really care about putting a dent in healthcare and changing the trajectory of and overall well-being of the workforce we serve, we need to be able to interface with people on more than just musculoskeletal issues. Instead of having a shallow depth to increased capabilities, partnership with Medcor was the best opportunity. Partnership allows us to better reach our goal of putting a dent in healthcare and really striving to impact employee wellbeing.”
Philip Seeger, CEO of Medcor, added his thoughts, “The partnership between Medcor and Work Right signifies our combined commitment to our clients’ wellbeing and success. Together, we’re changing how occupational health and prevention support services can elevate the standard of care and service level for our clients and their employees. This is more than a partnership; it’s a promise to provide unparalleled solutions and support that combines both prevention and treatment. Together, we will redefine what success looks like in our industry, delivering a seamless experience for our clients who will benefit from the powerful combination of these services.”
