SafeWorks Illinois for Physicians

When an employee is injured, the driving concern is how to help the patient regain their quality of life and get them back to work as quickly and safely as possible. At SafeWorks Illinois, we work closely with patients, their physicians and their employers to develop customized treatment plans and provide “Fast-Track” service to keep the employee in recovery, not waiting for their next appointment. Our Fast-Track Service promotes speedy recovery by developing a customized treatment plan that includes ancillary services and independent practitioners to ensure same-week appointments.

We keep the lines of communication open with prompt and regular communication with injured workers, employers, physicians and insurance companies throughout all treatment phases.
