Occupational Medicine Program

Occupational Medicine Program

We have a different philosophy about Workers Compensation

How does MidAmerica Orthopaedics Occupational Medicine program benefit both employers and employees and reduce overall workers compensation costs?

Direct to Specialist!

While pre-employment physicals, drug testing, safety and risk management are prominent aspects of a company’s occupational medicine program, the fact is that the most costly aspect are injuries, almost all of them being orthopaedic in nature, just not only acute injuries, but chronic conditions as well.

Our physician’s experience and prominent reputation in handling workers compensation cases combined with dedicated workers compensation case management, a strong return to work program, in house ancillary services, and a licensed Orthopaedic Surgery Center means that your employee receives their comprehensive care at one location and is returned to restricted work programs as quickly as possible. With one telephone call all the information you require to manage your claim is available.

Orthopaedic Immediate Care

An Important aspect of our Occupational Medicine Program

Direct to specialist for definitive care for acute orthopaedic injuries. This means no more waiting in the emergency room or occupational medicine clinic only to have your employee eventually referred to a specialist. Your orthopedic specialists are on site at the time of injury. With our Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center emergency cases can be handled the same day.
