Services promote optimal workplace wellness and occupational injury response at Nova Health Roseburg clinic
Nova Health, a comprehensive provider of quality urgent care, primary care, physical therapy, and musculoskeletal services in Lane and Douglas counties, announced today the launch of a new occupational medicine service line now available to local employers. Services are currently available at the Nova Health Roseburg clinic (780 NW Garden Valley Boulevard, Suite 310, Roseburg).
“Occupational medicine is a key service for employers in our community,” said Dr. James Daskalos, who https://www.novahealth.com/occupational-medicine/will be leading Nova Health’s Roseburg occupational medicine service line. “I’m thrilled to join Nova Health’s Roseburg team to bring a broad-spectrum of occupational medicine services to local businesses and community members. While furthering accessible healthcare in Roseburg and treating employees back to health with the injured worker program, these range of services also promote long-term employee well-being and the financial health of local businesses.”
As a provider of accessible and quality medical care to Lane and Douglas counties, Nova Health’s occupational medicine services include comprehensive testing, assessment and recovery treatments to help businesses minimize lost productivity, reduce healthcare costs, support long-term employee health. These benefits can ultimately save employers $5 to $161 with every dollar invested in personnel screenings. Nova Health is partnering with local businesses to help companies hire qualified job candidates who are fit-for-duty, maintain optimal wellness of all employees, and ensure a safe return to work after accidents while reducing employer costs.
“Nova Health knows first-hand the need for quality occupational medicine services in our community. These services are designed to ensure employers and employees have a reliable partner dedicated to the organizations safety and wellbeing,” said Bill Clendenen, Nova Health Chief Executive Officer. “It has been found that 25 percent of employer healthcare costs are related to unhealthy lifestyles. By taking proactive care of our employees, we can promote both the health of workers and the financial health our businesses.”
Roseburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Nova Health will host a meet-and-greet with Nova Health providers to celebrate the availability of the new occupational medicine services. The celebration is February 11 from 5-7 p.m. at the Nova Health Garden Valley location (780 NW Garden Valley Boulevard, Suite 310, Roseburg, Oregon 97471), and local business owners, community members and media are invited to attend.
Nova Health’s occupational therapy services include an array of employer-based tests including Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, drug and alcohol screenings, and even pre-placement strength examinations. With continuous employee wellness a top priority to many employers, Nova Health services also include prevention services, immunizations and vaccines, executive physicals, and Electrocardiogram (EKG) testing. This can help avoid nonfatal accidents, which can result in a median of eight days away from work. In response to onsite accidents, Nova Health is also equipped to thoroughly assess and treat injured employees through occupational injury response and treatment services.
