(Newswire.net — December 18, 2015) Tampa, FL — Reducing and preventing workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities continues to be a concern for businesses around the Tampa Bay area and the nation. According to a recent article in the Tampa Bay Business Journal, and reporting from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, cases of on-the-job injury and illness have continued their decade long decline.

This decline strongly correlates with increased efforts by employers to educate workers about safety procedures and best practices, as well as through improved health and wellness services.

Many of these improvements have come about through partnerships with Occupational Medicine teams, allowing employers more flexibility to help improve the health and well-being of their employees, while maintaining productivity, with options like onsite vaccinations, wellness and first-aid seminars, and health screens, as well as more efficient worker’s compensation care and decreased time away from work.  

Over the last 3 months, AvantGarde Urgent Care has been growing more and more of these types of relationships with some of Tampa Bay’s biggest employers. Businesses like Tampa Truck Driving School, TampaShip LLC, Bollinger Shipyards LLC, Hillsborough Community College Fire Academy, Hillsborough County, and Hillsborough County Public Schools have all partnered with this up and coming urgent care to help manage their Occupational Medicine needs. 

“As an urgent care practice, our exceptionally trained, bi-lingual medical staff and physicians are able to provide employers and their employees more efficient, more affordable, and more welcoming care than many local emergency rooms, or traditional family practices,” says Johana Rodriguez, AvantGarde Urgent Care’s Marketing Liaison.

A vast array of standardized services, like physicals and drug testing, vision and audiometric testing, occupational immunizations, on-site laboratory testing and diagnosis, digital x-rays, urgent injury care, follow-up care, post-exposure prophylaxis, and therapy referrals, as well as customized protocols (when necessary), are all available through AvantGarde Urgent Care, meaning a nearly one-stop shop for all work-related medical needs.

“Using our strengths of expanded service offerings, more convenient hours, and more cost effective care, we are working to help employers in the Tampa Bay Area lower the costs associated with lost productivity and time away from work. We are also helping to ensure that their workforce stays healthy, ultimately leading to event fewer on-the-job injuries,” says Ms. Rodriguez. “
