Treating Workplace Injuries
When an on-the-job injury occurs, we offer exceptional medical care at our clinic for the initial diagnosis and treatment and all follow-up injury care. When needed, visits are triaged to the Emergency Department and we provide follow-up and case management until your employee is released.
Post-accident drug and alcohol testing can also be provided upon your request. Authorization forms, along with desired testing and proper custody and control forms will need to be sent to the Occupational Health Services Department with the employee.
