Let’s face it. When you’re hiring new team members for your company, it’s because you need the additional help—fast.

Which is why our medical team at AFC Urgent Care Knoxville makes sure to get your employees in and out of our urgent care center in a quick, efficient manner so that they can get back to work with their health in tow!

Read on for a peek at ways our AFC urgent care center can help care for the health of your employees from day one on the job.

First Day of Work = First Day of Health

In order for your company to function at its best, it needs a healthy team behind it.

Our occupational services can help ensure your team is a healthy one from the first day to the last day—and every day in between.

We can even assist during the hiring phase. Our medical team can complete pre-employment screenings on your potential new hire to ensure he or she is healthy enough to handle the job.

Pre-employment screenings include:

However, our occupational services can go even further once your potential candidate is hired. AFC Urgent Care Knoxville’s ongoing employee health services can help make certain your employee maintains his or her clean bill of health.

From yearly wellness exams to testing and specialty exams, we can help make sure your employee is able to handle the job at hand year after year.

Our urgent care center’s specialty and testing exams include:

  • Drug testing (urine and/or hair)
  • BATs (DOT and non-DOT)
  • Nicotine testing
  • X-rays
  • Impairment ratings
  • Pulmonary function test
  • Lift test, PPD test and vision/hearing tests
  • Onsite CBC (Complete Blood Count)
  • Onsite CMP (Complete Metabolic Panel)
  • Influenza (flu)
  • Rapid strep
  • Hemoccult *Urinalysis
  • Finger Glucose
  • IMEs (independent medical exams)
  • Fit for duty physicals
  • Hazmat physicals
  • Lead testing

As you can see, if there’s a test you need completed as an employer, our medical team is able to handle the request—and we’re open seven days a week for your convenience.

When Injury Strikes While on the Job

Of course, not every injury on the job site can be prevented.

Life happens, which means accidents happen, as well. If an employee is hurt on the job, it’s important to have employee health procedures in place.

If you have an employee who is hurt while on the job, our medical professionals are able to handle workers’ compensation cases in a quick and efficient manner—and without the high costs emergency rooms often charge.

Let us be your health partner so that you never have to question whether your employees are receiving the health care they need and deserve to get the job done!

Offering everything from DOT physicals to pre-employment exams, the medical team at AFC Urgent Care Knoxville is here to help ensure the health of your employees. Have them stop by our urgent care center today for an evaluation.
