Midwest Occupational Medicine was founded in 1992 by Dr. George Dirkers. In the mid 90’s he partnered with Dr. Keith Byler, emergency room Physician and Medical Director of several Hospital Emergency Departments in Southern Illinois. To date M.O.M. staffs three Physicians, a Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant through two medical clinics located in Wood River and Belleville Illinois. Our providers perform comprehensive occupational medical services including pre-placement, DOT, and OSHA mandated physical examinations, employee injury management and medical review for approximately 1400 client companies. Midwest Occupational Medicine has grown to become the primary resource for occupational health in Southwestern Illinois. Our Physicians consult for several regional, statewide and national companies. Providing quality cost effective medical care in concert with the knowledge and experience of our entire staff allows businesses to address ever changing occupational medical needs.
