Southeast Occupational Medicine

Good health is good for business. At SoutheastHEALTH, we partner with companies to ensure the well-being of their greatest assets: their people.

Our occupational health team is led by a medical review officer. The staff includes an occupational medicine physician, nurses and wellness consultants. We work together to help your employees stay healthy. And when injuries occur, our goal is a rapid, complete recovery. A return-to-work focus means costs are decreased and risk management is a priority.

How Occupational Medicine Boosts Bottom Lines

Employer healthcare costs are rising. Here are some of the ways that partnering with our team can help your organization:

Injury and illness prevention. Occupational health programs have reduced work-related injuries and illnesses by 35%, according to a report from Advisory Board.

Reduced healthcare costs. According to Advisory Board, 70% of employers say wellness programs have lowered their healthcare costs.

Improved productivity. Lost worker productivity due to health issues costs employers 2.3 times more than medical and pharmacy spending, according to Advisory Board. Occupational medicine programs can help employers reduce these losses, which occur when workers are absent or are working but not feeling their best.

Drug and alcohol use isn’t just a personal issue. It can put everyone in the workplace at risk. That's why testing is a crucial part of any safety and injury-prevention program.

At SoutheastHEALTH, our Occupational Medicine team includes certified specimen collectors and breath alcohol testing personnel. Our director, Mark Austin, DO, MRO, is a DOT-certified medical examiner. You can trust that our testing is handled correctly and reviewed by experts.

Work Injury Management

Accidents happen. But they don't have to derail lives. Our careful approach helps employees get timely treatment, and it minimizes lost wages. Employers see reduced costs and diminished downtime. Everyone wins.

Work injury management starts with assessing the injury. This includes any pre-existing conditions. We can then turn to experts across SoutheastHEALTH to effectively treat the problem. We provide case management for every injury so no one falls through the cracks. Southeast Occupational Medicine gets people back to work and back to their lives.
