U.S. HealthWorks, one of the largest operators of occupational health care centers in the United States, today announced it has acquired four health care centers and two worksites from Sensia Healthcare in Wisconsin.
The centers, U.S. HealthWorks’ first in Wisconsin, are located in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties and bring the total number of U.S. HealthWorks medical and worksite clinics to 179 nationwide in 16 states. Two of the centers are located in Milwaukee at 11414 West Park Place, Suite 100, and 875 W. Layton Ave. The other centers are located at 5040 West Ashland Way in Franklin and at 16505 W.

Financial terms of the transaction, effective December 1, 2012, were not disclosed.
The facilities will continue to offer a range of occupational healthcare services, including diagnosis and treatment for injury and illness, preventive services, pre-employment and post-offer exams and screening, and return-to-work rehabilitative care.
"We are excited that a respected company like U.S. HealthWorks has brought its highly regarded national network of physicians, health clinics and medical resources to Wisconsin,” said Dr. Andrew Seter, medical director of Sensia Healthcare. “We are pleased to join an organization that brings additional resources to support our services to patients.”
