Occupational & Corporate Health Services

Healthy employees are the key to the future and success of an organization. The corporate world of the 21st century is different from what it was a few years back. Speed of work has increased tremendously. We are living in a mechanized, computerized global village with a fast paced economy where time is money. Modernization has brought many benefits but along with that it has its negative aspects too. Effects on health due to occupation are now well recognized.

The pressures of the fast paced system start taking its toll. Health is affected.  This is where IHS, the leading healthcare provider of Pakistan, intervenes, through tailored health management plans ensuring that the health of the employee, their dependants and the company as a whole is not only well maintained but infact enhanced in a very systematic, hassle free and cost effective manner without compromising on quality.
