A tipster who'd just gone to see Sicko sent me an invitation that Concentra Medical Centers mailed out to "Maryland VIPs." The invite notes that the company has helped businesses and municipalities across Maryland slash workers' comp and other health care costs. How'd they do it? Apparently not by skimping on dinner parties. Concentra has held a dinner for "Maryland government, business and civic leaders" at Ocean City's Galaxy Restaurant for years, in conjunction with the annual Maryland Association of Counties conference.

Concentra Medical Centers, which opens an Eastern regional headquarters on U.S. 1 in Howard County today, is consolidating the dispersed business of occupational medicine into a national industry.About a year ago, Concentra spent about $10 million in stock to buy three occupational health companies in the Baltimore area, giving it eight clinics in the metropolitan area, six of which it has renovated or moved in the last year. Its most serious competitors in the Baltimore area are hospital-based programs, particularly those at Johns Hopkins and Mercy, both of which have also been growing.

The nation's largest physician-practice management company focusing on occupational health care has come to Maryland.This morning officials from Concentra Medical Centers will announce their plan to operate a total of 12 health care facilities in the state.Concentra recently bought nine local occupational health facilities, which employ 200 workers. The company will open three additional centers with 150 employees."It's the best thing for the employees, the employers and the state of Maryland, because we reduce the costs of occupational health care anywhere from 30 to 70 percent, and that makes Maryland more competitive for business," said Tom Ward, vice president for operations for the eastern region of OccuSystems Inc., Concentra's parent company.
