Maritime & Ports

Maritime and Ports Industries

As a shipping company or port operator, you know that changing legislation, decreasing healthcare quality, and increasing healthcare costs are prohibiting you from taking care of your employees and their families. Imagine having an onsite clinic that suits all your company’s and employees’ needs!

PMR Healthcare has worked with companies in the maritime and port industry long enough to understand the illnesses and injuries that your employees commonly face. Our knowledge and experience allow us to provide you with a clinic tailored to both the maritime industry and your company’s unique culture.

When you choose a PMR Onsite Clinic, you have the option to implement Primary Care, Occupational Care, or one of PMR Healthcare’s many other programs.

A PMR Onsite Primary Care Clinic is a private clinic that dedicates its services solely to your employees, their spouses, and their dependents. They enjoy patient visits that are actually long enough for the doctor to get to know them personally and determine the root cause of their problems. In addition, the clinic can provide common prescriptions and laboratory testing at no additional cost to the patient. If someone is unable to be treated at the clinic and needs to see an outside specialist, PMR acts as their advocate and continues to follow up and manage their care.

With a PMR Onsite Occupational Care Clinic, you rarely need to send your employees to an outside doctor or to the emergency room because more than 80% of injuries and illnesses can be treated onsite. Immediate, onsite treatment eliminates the need to file a worker’s compensation claim. This reduces lost work time and potential recordability, which in turn lowers your Experience Modification Rate (EMR). If an injured employee does require hospitalization or recuperation time, PMR manages their care by working with the employee and medical professionals to ensure an appropriate treatment plan and follow-up appointments. The result? A timely return to work.

If you operate outside of the United States, you can still depend on PMR Healthcare to provide high-quality healthcare. A PMR Onsite International Clinic provides primary, urgent, acute, chronic, and occupational healthcare. With the ability to include lifesaving medical services anywhere in the world, you can keep your employees healthy, safe, and productive.
