At NW Indiana ER & Hospital, we are dedicated to providing the most comprehensive experience of care for our patients. An essential component in achieving these goals is to provide treatment that meets a patient’s needs and integrates as smoothly as possible into their lives, including their occupational lives. Our team has developed and implemented a cutting edge occupational medicine program to satisfy these growing needs in our community with on-site physicians and specialists available 24/7.
Understanding Occupational Medicine
Our specialists and physicians are always looking for new and innovative ways to serve our community.
We recognized the vital connection between workplace environment and a patient’s health, and sought to provide a resource to meet our community’s growing needs. Occupational Medicine, or Occ-Med, is an area of medicine that focuses on a patient’s occupational health, taking into account workplace environment and regulations. We work with patients, ensuring that our recommendations are optimized to meet the needs of their professional lives
Why Occupational Medicine is Such an Instrumental Part of Treatment
We understand that your loved ones and you depend on your livelihood, which means that your time is incredibly valuable.
Occupational medicine works to ensure that you’re back on your feet as quickly as possible, without compromising health or endangering recovery.
Occupational medicine benefits both the employer and employee by minimizing disruption in the patient’s routine and days missed from an injury. Occupational medicine provides insight to doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers as to how to tailor treatment specifically for patients. Our program is also an effective tool in helping to decrease the number of OSHA reportable and recordable events by providing practical care and reasonable workplace accommodations.
