When Dr. Frank Messana and Dr. Michael Foreit first started in occupational medicine in the late 1990’s, they realized the system they worked for wasn’t providing services in a manner that was most beneficial to employees or client companies. This led to a desire to fill those service gaps themselves. As a result, they founded Comprehensive Care Occupational Health Clinic in 2003. In 2004, they saw a need to expand their size and service offerings by adding physical therapy, industrial rehab and ergonomics under the Comprehensive Therapy banner.
After working in the clinic directly with employees, safety managers, HR reps and client companies, day in and day out, Dr. Frank and Dr. Michael recognized once again there was a service void on the front and back end for their client companies. They knew they were doing a great job with patients once they got to the clinic, but they found there were few available resources to help their client companies really understand what services and compliance clearances they needed before their employees went to the clinic or why their injuries/incident rates were what they were. No one was looking at the process from beginning to end. Dr. Frank and Dr. Michael recognized there was a need for both consulting on the front end and implementation on the back end.
This realization, along with the indispensable help of Mike Pelz, led directly to the creation of 1 Source Occupational Health & Safety in 2011, as a truly one-stop shop for all your occupational health, environmental and safety related needs.
