Occupational medicine is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Lawrence County Memorial Hospital offers occupational medicine services to companies and individuals to help maintain health and safety in the workplace. Our expertise in this field enables employers to decrease overall health care costs, decrease absenteeism and decrease OSHA reportable events.
In the case of injury, we keep employers informed of their employee's progress. That includes a status update from the provider and any noncompliance or underlying health issues that may affect the treatment plan. The goal is to develop the most effective and efficient methods for safely returning workers to productivity.
