IRVINE, Calif.--Akeso Occupational Health announced today the acquisition of Inland Empire Occupational Medicine, expanding its growing network of clinics into Riverside County.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Craig Clark and Inland Empire Occupational Medicine, a company that has been a trusted occupational health partner to the local business community for over 25 years. The acquisition allows Akeso to expand our services to the important Inland Empire region with a trusted, long-standing partner. Over the years Craig and his team have built an amazing reputation for the best quality care and customer service, and we look forward to helping the company continue to grow and flourish,” said Chuck Kruger, CEO of Akeso.
Craig Clark, PA-C added, “I put together Inland Empire Occupational Medicine almost 27 years ago with the vision of being the best at what we do; Occupational Medicine. As I look back at the thousands of patients I have seen over the years, I am confident that I have achieved this goal. Over the past year, I met with several potential partners who can help us grow - some individual practitioners, and some larger companies. After careful consideration, I chose Akeso. Akeso has been formed to be in partnership with all of its clients. I met every level of their team, and I could easily see that they shared the same passion that I have in regard to patient care. You will see several exciting enhancements in the near future that I believe will make this practice rise to an even higher standard of care.”
