Baxter Regional Medical Center strives to help all workers regain their
ability to work and reduce their risk of further sustaining other injuries
or illnesses. In order to achieve this, the rehabilitation services department
at Baxter Regional Medical Center now offers employer and employees an
occupational medicine program. Through work conditioning, physical therapists
at BRMC help rehabilitate workers, return them to their occupation, and
reduce the risk of further injury.
Several common and significant benefits of occupational medicine include:
- Reduce workers’ compensation claims
- Reduce expenses related to employee injuries and illness
- Lower the rate of lost workdays
- Increase productivity
- Increase employee satisfaction
- Reduce absenteeism
What Our Occupational Health Specialists Do
At Baxter Regional, our occupational health physicians are exceedingly
knowledgeable about the potential hazards in employees’ workplaces.
We are able to use this knowledge and help diagnose exactly what is causing
your injury or illness. Your injury could be as straightforward and easy
to diagnose as a fractured bone, but it could also be complicated and
difficult to detect like exposure to a certain chemical. Our occupational
health specialists have extensive experience with this area of study and
we have encountered nearly every type of work injury and illness you can
imagine. Over the past 54 years, we have successfully treated and rehabilitated
countless patients, allowing them to return to work happy and healthy.
