East County Urgent Care and Walk-In Clinic has been providing drug and alcohol screening for our clients for over 30 years.


We understand that the workforce can be complicated and challenging when it comes to medical care. There must be a balance between the interests of the employer as well as that of the employee. We pride ourselves in offering exceptional treatment for our patients while still maintaining the interests of the company.

East County Urgent Care and Walk-In Clinic has been serving the communities of East County since 1982. Conveniently located in El Cajon, we strive to provide quality medical care in a friendly, professional, and efficient manner. We take pride in providing a personal experience with our patients while minimizing wait times.

We have over 30 years of experience in dealing with the sometimes complicated guidelines of workers’ compensation and OSHA. Management of industrial cases is pursued initially with conservative treatment and the use of an aggressive modified work program. We have a Worker’s Compensation Coordinator that works full-time with our clients. Our coordinator is in contact with the employer, insurance company, and the injured worker throughout the entire course of treatment. If referral to a specialist or hospitalization is required we have an extensive referral system in place to address these needs.

What are occupational medicine services?

Employer services are occupational health services that are provided by a medical clinic to help employers maintain a workplace and workforce that is safe and healthy. The medical clinic will work directly with an employer to understand the needs of the company to help them determine what they can do to support the health and well-being of the company’s employees. The services provided to employees can be preventative such as providing flu shots and tetanus shots, or acute as needed when an employee gets injured on the job or falls ill at work, or as the result of exposure to a harmful substance in the workplace. Employer services can also be offered as part of the pre-employment conditions and contract by performing the necessary work physicals and drug screenings to ensure the potential employee is fit to perform the tasks of the job they have been offered.

What occupational medicine services do you provide?

At East County Urgent Care, we offer a wide variety of employer services to ensure the health and safety of each employee is in line with the job they are required to perform. We can provide employer services from the initial hiring stage through to ongoing preventative care and acute treatment when needed.

We help our partners by providing the following services:

• Pre-screening and ongoing work physicals to complete a standard physical exam as well as vision tests, urinalysis, and checking vital signs.

• Routine medical services including administration of immunizations such as the flu shot, and tetanus shot.

• Drug screenings on a regular, ongoing basis or as needed.

X-ray services were needed for the diagnosis and treatment of minor injuries sustained at work.

• Urgent care diagnosis and treatment of injuries or illnesses because of exposure to a hazard on the job or workplace, including claims that fall under Worker’s Compensation.

Do I need an appointment for occupational medicine services?

While an appointment can be beneficial to have for routine services such as a physical exam, you don’t need one to receive any of the treatments we provide in our urgent care. At East County Urgent Care, our top priority is getting you back on the job when it is safe to do so. We are open 7 days a week with extended hours to provide you with the medical attention you require to get you back on your feet and back to work. We also offer onsite laboratory and x-ray services, so we can perform the necessary tests for a full exam and thorough diagnosis to prescribe the proper treatment plan.

How do occupational medicine services benefit me?

Employer services are in place to protect not just the employer, but mainly the employees by ensuring the employees are well and properly taken care of. East County Urgent Care works with a variety of employers to understand their unique needs to keep their employees safe and healthy. We will ensure that we are performing the proper and necessary tests that your employer has specified to test your ability to safely perform the tasks of your job. We can also perform any necessary drug tests required for your job, based on the requirements your employer has provided us. When an employee gets injured on the job, filling in the Workers Compensation paperwork can be a nightmare. Our staff is well-versed in filling in these forms and making thorough notes to send to Workers Comp. for you to be properly compensated. Our team at East County Urgent Care knows the process and details involved in employer services.

If you are an employer and want more information, then we encourage you to reach out and contact us through our website today.
