• Occupational Medicine

  • Medicine Meets IndustryOcc Med

    Occupational Medicine is most simply, the area where company employee health and medicine overlap.

    Whether your company is just starting or already established, St. Catherine Hospital (SCH) can tailor a plan to meet your needs and provide excellent care for injured employees. Attention to medical care leads to reduced medical costs, satisfied employees and decreased time away from work.

    SCH understands the workers' compensation system, and its impact on financial health. We believe something that can be cured in 3 weeks, should not take 8 weeks to heal.

    When an employee needs work restrictions, they will be based on the injury, and clearly communicated to both the employer and employee. SCH will not lose sight of the fact that the employee works for the company.

    Each examination performed will be tailored to company specific job duties and requirements.  All Department of Transportation and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards are completed in accordance with the specific forms and guidelines.

    The clinic is located on the second floor of Siena Medical Clinic on the St. Catherine Hospital campus.

    To make an appointment, please call 620- 275-3777.
