Employees are your company’s most valuable asset. Carilion recognizes that taking care of them is vital to your organization's overall success and well-being.
At a time when employers have reason to be concerned about soaring employee health costs, we’re here to help you focus on what’s most important: the early detection and treatment of disease and the prevention of work-related injuries. Not only does this ensure the health of your staff, it’s the best way to take control over potentially overwhelming medical costs.
Carilion Occupational Medicine offers regular employee screenings so we can diagnose chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes, in their early stages when they respond better to basic interventions. This avoids the need to pay far higher costs for employees with major health crises, such as heart attacks, stroke, and amputations. To encourage participation and eliminate the need for employees to travel, our licensed and registered clinical professionals and health educators offer on-site screenings and health education programs at your workplace.
We also help prevent work-related injuries and accidents by identifying potential problem areas in your environment overall as well as hazards related to specific job functions. Working with your managers, we develop protective measures and train employees on how to perform tasks more safely and efficiently.
