ADDISON, Texas, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentra ("Concentra" or the "Company"), a national leader in on-site employer health care, is known for its unique combination of medical services and general wellness programs. Horizon Air, a regional carrier based in Portland, Oregon, is known for its safe, reliable air transportation with caring, friendly, and professional service. When Horizon Air was searching for an on-site health program that matched its commitment to quality, superior service, and corporate philosophy, it chose Concentra.
Concentra will work in tandem with Horizon Air's 2,100 Portland-based employees to develop work-wellness at two convenient locations: a new on-site center within Horizon Air's main hub and an existing Concentra Medical Centers location, just miles from Portland International Airport. Employee wellness programs will focus on getting routine health screenings, making better food choices, and incorporating physical activities into daily duties.
"We are very excited about working with Horizon Air to create personal wellness programs that encompass physical fitness, nutrition, health, safety, and can travel as much as their employees do," said Tim Williams, regional account executive for Concentra.
Concentra's on-site services help increase employee productivity while reducing costs incurred by sending employees off-site for routine medical care. By adopting a multi-disciplinary approach to injury prevention, mitigation, and cost management, Concentra offers employers workplace solutions that work in theory and in practice.
Headquartered in Addison, Texas, Concentra is a leading health care company that strives to make health care accessible and affordable. The company offers a broad range of services that provide quality patient care for work-related injuries while containing the rising costs of occupational health care and workers' compensation. The company operates 320 medical centers in 40 states and 240 on-site medical facilities at employer locations throughout the nation. Concentra also provides urgent care services at a growing number of its medical center locations to serve the gap between primary care physicians and the emergency room.
