Valencia-based U.S. HealthWorks has expanded its occupational health and urgent care network with the purchase of Mosaic Life Care’s Occupational Medicine Clinic in St. Joseph, Mo., the company said in a statement.

The clinic is the second U.S. HealthWorks center in St. Joseph, about 50 miles north of Kansas City. With this acquisition, U.S. HealthWorks now operates six medical clinics in Missouri. Mosaic Life Care is a nationally-acclaimed healthcare system based in St. Joseph, Missouri.

“Mosaic Life Care has a history of providing excellent medical care,” said Joseph Mallas, president and CEO of U.S. HealthWorks. “We are pleased to welcome the team from their Occupational Medicine Clinic to U.S. HealthWorks and are excited to expand our services in the St. Joseph region with this new center.”

Nationally, U.S. HealthWorks, a subsidiary of Dignity Health, has 250 medical and worksite clinics in 21 states.

“We are excited about the opportunity to join U.S. HealthWorks in providing services to area employers. We found great synergy with U.S. HealthWorks as they’re also nationally recognized for providing quality care and great outcomes, plus they offer best in class disability management. We look forward to enhancing the services we provide to patients and clients in Northwest Missouri,” said Jaren Pippitt, Strategic Partnerships Administrator of Mosaic Life Care.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
