About us

About us

Our first clinic, EOMC, was started in 2002 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.

Sacramento Occupational Medical Center (SAC-OMC) is conveniently located off Highway 80 in Sacramento. SAC-OMC specializes in the evaluation and treatment of work-related injuries and urgent health care concerns for employees.

35 years of experience

With over thirty five years of combined occupational medicine experience, our medical providers are very experienced in the evaluation and management of illness and injuries in the workplace. Common complaints treated by our staff include: pain due to overuse and repetitive motion, trauma, lacerations, burns, contusions, sprains, strains, and fractures. Additionally SAC-OMC provides convenience care for the common illnesses of the working population including colds and flu, earaches, sore throats, headaches, cough, stomach illnesses, rashes, and more.

SAC-OMC’s focus on prompt care with an emphasis on having injured workers recover in the workplace appealed to many employers and insurers. At their request SACOMC's parent clinic Emeryville Occupation Medical Center expanded to Santa Cruz – operating as Santa Cruz Occupational Medical Center and Redding as Redding Occupational Medical Center. In fact over 2000 client companies have now received services at SAC-OMC and its affiliated clinics.

We invite you to see how our customized medical services have been helping employees, employers, and insurance carriers with cost-effective, quality care for the last 12 years. Please visit our Product and Services page for more information on how we can help you.
