Injury Care

As a Bureau of Workers Compensation certified provider, Western Reserve Hospital's Occupational and Employee Health Center specializes in providing care for work-related injuries.

In the event that an employee reports to a Western Reserve Hospital Occupational and Employee Health Center with an injury that will prevent them from returning to work, our staff will contact the employer prior to releasing the employee to provide details of the injury and our recommended care plan. Our BWC Coordinator will then complete all forms and documentation required by the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation, and will maintain a comprehensive record of the incident.

Western Reserve Hospital's Occupational and Employee Health Center has access to a large multi-specialty network of physicians, and can also coordinate follow-up care with a specialist within our network as needed.

Our health providers understand the importance of keeping your employees healthy in order to promote a high level of productivity within your organization, and we make every effort to ensure employees are able to return to work as quickly as possible after an injury.

On-Site Testing

Our certified technicians can provide immunizations and drug and alcohol screenings at your place of business if your facility meets the necessary safety and regulatory requirements. Having these services provided on site is convenient for employees and offers cost savings to employers by eliminating travel time.
