The Work-Related Injury Management Program at The Occupational Health Center (OHC) provides a cost-effective means for client companies to treat, track, and control work-related injuries and/or illnesses. Workers' Compensation presents complex challenges for employers. The OHC is committed to helping employers meet these challenges, and we are dedicated to a philosophy of delivering high quality medical care to employees and returning them to work as soon as is medically appropriate.
If your employee is injured, the OHC will see that individual. No appointment is necessary. However, we do require your company's approval, either verbally or through written authorization, before we can treat any employee. Employees without appointments will be seen at the first available appointment time, unless the severity of their injury requires them to be seen ahead of other scheduled patients. Life-threatening emergencies and off-shift injuries/illnesses should go directly to The Chester County Hospital's Emergency Department. The OHC will follow-up the next business day.
The OHC tracks an ill or injured employee, according to the employer's instructions, until the employee returns to full duty and/or the case has been resolved. The OHC works closely with physical therapy and physician-specialty referral networks to access the best possible support for early and appropriate return to work.
The OHC has several ways of communicating with employers about their employees' treatment.
