Occupational Health

The safe and rapid return of the injured worker to full function is our primary goal.

A certified phlebotomist is available to collect specimens, including lab scripts from another Provider seen from outside the center.

Blood draw patients visiting the Center for Employee Health will need to bring lab scripts no older than 1 year from initial lab script order. Check your lab script to see if fasting is required, as many tests do not require it.
