Because each company’s needs are unique, OHS does not take a one-size-fits-all approach to occupational medicine program development. Whether your business needs assistance with defining essential job functions or establishing a consistent substance abuse testing program, our staff is dedicated to developing a partnership with employers to meet their specific challenges.

OHS, located in seven primary care locations, offers a comprehensive approach to occupational health, which emphasizes preventing injuries and maintaining a healthy environment. Through an integrated program design, we not only treat work-related injuries, but also proactively identify the source of those injuries and help employers develop strategies to help reduce injuries in the future.

As an employer, your goal is to have safe and healthy employees, ours is to help you accomplish that goal by offering a comprehensive health program.
