Injury Care Coordination
Lost work time resulting from an injury can create financial hardships for both employers and employees. At Baptist Health Occupational Medicine, our goal is to assist companies in decreasing lost work time. We won't rush an employee back to work before he or she is ready; however, getting a person back to work -- helping them be productive again is the "best medicine" for both employee and employer. Our staff will assist in all areas of work-related injury, including follow-up on your employee/patient as follows:

  • Frequent communication with employee/patient
  • Frequent communication with employer by telephone and written reports
  • Communication with treating physicians, referral sources and claims payers
  • Assistance with workers' compensation claims
  • Expediting employee's appropriate return to work

Physical Therapy and Work Hardening
Physical therapy is available at all three Louisville locations. Physical therapists specialize in industrial physical therapy and offer treatment for work-related injuries as well as fitness for duty exams to get injured employees back on the job quickly and safely. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact one of the locations listed at the top of the page.

Substance Abuse Screenings
Our staff can help protect your company against drugs by assisting with the establishment of a substance abuse program. The benefits to your company include fewer missed workdays, less tardiness, employees who are less likely to injure themselves and others, and few workers compensation claims filed.

Plus, your company representative can schedule appointments when he or she needs them and receive prompt results. In many cases, results come back to you on the very same day as the examination. Some types of physicals are:
