Occupational Rehabilitation

Our occupational health services help you maintain a healthy, productive workforce

Aurora BayCare’s occupational health program is focused on keeping your workforce healthy. From drug screenings to injury rehab and workplace wellness, Aurora BayCare offers a complete package of workplace health services.

By proactively investing in a safe and healthy workforce, you will cut your company’s health care costs, increase productivity, and lower worker compensation claims.

Pre-Hire & Employee Screens

  • Medical exams (DOT, OSHA mandated)
  • Drug screens
  • Pre-placement testing

Save money for every dollar you invest. Baseline medical tests and pre-placement screening services are designed to ensure employees have the abilities required for the job. Most organizations see a significant reduction in workers’ compensation claims after implementing pre-placement tests. 

Injury Treatment and Rehabilitation:

  • On-site nursing
  • On-site rehabilitation
  • Rehabilitation (hand, spine, orthopedic)
  • Work conditioning
  • Functional capacity testing
  • Rehabilitation case management

When an injury does occur, early referral to Aurora BayCare rehab services will reduce costs, treatment time, and lost work days. We can provide therapy in our clinics or at your worksite, maximizing an injured employee’s productive work time.

After an injury, work conditioning therapy simulates the actual movements required for the employee’s job. Functional capacity tests ensure they are ready to go back to work, safely.  We also provide total case management support for insurance, FMLA, and worker’s compensation.
