ADDISON, Texas, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Effective May 21, Concentra, a national provider of occupational health and urgent care services, has expanded its customer base and reach with an asset purchase of Occupational Health Center, P.C. (OHC) in Des Moines, Iowa.

Concentra will consolidate the operations of OHC into its two Concentra Urgent Care centers in Des Moines, and OHC owner Tony Sciorrotta, M.D., will join Concentra as a supporting physician.  This acquisition will support Concentra's extensive client base, its long history as the leading provider of occupational medicine to employees, and a growing demand for comprehensive health and wellness services.  

Keith Newton, president and chief operating officer of Concentra, said, "This is an excellent opportunity to expand our service and medical expertise to local employers and the private-patient community in Des Moines.  Dr. Sciorrotta has a proven record of service to the community, providing comprehensive medical treatment for injured employees – a philosophy that parallels that of Concentra and ultimately results in tremendous benefits for our patients and clients."

In addition to occupational health and urgent care medical services, Concentra offers a range of physical therapy, preventive, wellness, and health education services to current and new patients and employers.  OHC patients will have access to those services at both Concentra locations in the greater Des Moines area:
