SCOMC was started in 2008 with the belief that a locally owned and operated medical clinic focused on the care of injured workers and their employers could provide the medical treatment and customer service that was needed for local businesses to succeed.
Reflecting the founders’ belief that care was more efficient if it occurred in a single place, under one philosophy of care: physical therapy, occupational therapy, orthopedic and hand surgery consultations were incorporated into the service offering.
As California moved toward adopting a unified medical treatment utilization schedule that included other physical medicine specialties physiatry, chiropractic and acupuncture treatment was added in accordance with this schedule.
As employers became aware of SCOMC more and more started sending their employees. Some employers were small with 5-10 employees and some were much larger – as many as 7000 employees!
SCOMC’s focus on prompt care with an emphasis on having injured workers recover in the workplace appealed to many employers and insurers. In fact over 2000 client companies have now received services at SCOMC and its affiliated clinics.
