The Healthy Worker is an occupational and environmental medicine clinic providing comprehensive care for work-related illnesses, exposures, and injuries. When you or one of your employees sustain a work-related injury or illness, it’s important to take the right steps, starting with getting the right medical care. Many employers require workers to receive care at an occupational medicine clinic to provide appropriate guidance in work restrictions over the worker’s recovery period. So, it’s important to understand what we do.
Why Should You Use an Occupational Medicine Facility?
When you sustain a work-related injury or illness on the job, it’s important to get the right care. At the same time, your company may want to ensure your care complies with state, federal and their own policies. Occupational medicine clinics specialize in managing the paperwork necessary to document the incident for insurance and legal purposes, as well as the ongoing treatment plan throughout recovery and claim closure.
Occupational medicine clinics excel at filing worker’s compensation claims and handling other medical exams specifically related to work.
