Partner with the Occupational Health Experts
All of our clinicians are trained in occupational medicine, and will work alongside you during the injury care process. Having a trusted partner offers both you and your employees several key benefits, including:
Support to ease your burden
Handling all aspects of the worker’s compensation process can be overwhelming. We can help make it much less painful by managing your injured employee’s treatment and return-to-work plan. At every step, we facilitate communication between employer, injured worker, payor or third-party administrator (TPA), and other key stakeholders to move the case along swiftly.
Specialists in work-place injuries
Our providers are specially trained in occupational medicine, allowing us to diagnose and treat injured employees more effectively than general practitioners. We familiarize ourselves with your specific workplace conditions to create an effective care plan — including an active recovery process that helps your employees get back to work quickly and safely.
One-stop shop for care
Convenience plays a major factor in ensuring injured employees complete treatment, especially when it involves follow-up visits and physical therapy. Each of our WorkCenters throughout northcentral Pennsylvania offers a single location for all their needs, from initial evaluation to recovery. That consistency also means better quality of care, and simplifies the process to help save you time and money.
