Work Care

To help employers protect their workers, cut costs, and reduce lost work days, Cotton O’Neil Work Care provides a wide suite of services in occupational medicine and workers’ compensation care.

Our occupational health specialists work to anticipate, prevent and treat workplace injuries from accidents requiring immediate medical attention to chronic disorders that slowly reduce employees’ productivity and quality of life.

Upon request, we also provide on-site evaluations of your workplace for health and safety, such as workstation ergonomics and protective equipment for plant workers.

For employees with on-the-job injuries, such as sprains, cuts or eye contamination, Work Care can provide treatment at our main clinic at the Kansas Rehabilitation Hospital or at any of Stormont Vail’s Express Care locations.

For emergencies, call 911 or send employees to the Stormont Vail Emergency Department.

Work Care offers continued care for injured employees and can refer employees for follow-up care, X-rays and other diagnostics and specialty care. Through the entire worker’s compensation process, we track injuries and treatment. We also provide medical reports and other relevant information to employers and health insurers.
