Services and Programs
Upper Valley Medical Center (UVMC) Occupational Health services provides businesses with a wide range of services that reduce work-related injury costs, increase productivity, reduce absenteeism and educate on wellness and prevention of injuries.
Upper Valley Medical Center Occupational Health offers a cooperative partnership with employers. We encourage direct communication with physicians and staff to assist the employer when questions arise regarding restrictions and/or treatment options. Our physician can personally come to the worksite to discuss work-related injuries and any ongoing downtime issues.
Since our physicians serve as the medical review officers for drug screening tests and results, good communication between the UVMC Occupational Health staff and the employer means minimal time lost, fewer recurring injuries and lower overall cost to the company.
Treatment of Injuries and Illnesses
UVMC Occupational Health provides prompt medical care for evaluation and treatment of work-related injuries.
Pre-placement physicals are a valuable investment in the hiring process and can be used to determine if a prospective employee is physically able to perform the essential functions of the job. UVMC provides a full spectrum of exams and screenings, including return-to-work physicals and fitness-for-duty exams after a prolonged absence.
