Business Health-Injury Treatment and Management Services

When an injury or illness occurs, treatment of the employee must be the first priority, particularly with an emergency. Equally important is the return of that employee to work as safely and as soon as possible. For your employee, it means improved health and livelihood.

In emergent and urgent situations, the emergency department at Fort HealthCare is available and staffed by emergency room physicians 24 hours per day. Necessary laboratory, drug screening and X-ray services are accessible immediately if needed. Follow up by our board certified occupational medicine physician is also available.

An important part of injury management is the safe and quick return of your injured employee to work. This may require rehabilitation to resume any function lost to injury. It may require work hardening/work simulation in order to build up strength and endurance. Through our case management services, we serve as the communication link between your injured employee, your worker's compensation provider, the medical professionals caring for your employee and any others involved in the case. The objectives of our case management services are to return your employee to work as safely and as quickly as possible, and to assist in identifying high-risk areas within your company. Specific services that may be coordinated by Business Health via the Fort HealthCare Therapy and Sport Center staff include:

  • Specific case consultation
  • Job Site Assessment- evaluating the work site or work station for safe return to work
  • Functional Capacity Evaluation- evaluating range of motion, endurance, strength, posture and joint position
  • Rehabilitation- achieving maximum function through therapy
  • Rehabilitation Work Hardening/Work Simulation-strengthening, endurance building, conditioning
