OccMed Connect brings local access to occupational medicine services

New Sanford OccMed Connect Clinic expands area’s access to occupational medicine experts.

  • Jan 03, 2017

Thief River Falls area businesses and their employees now have local access to Sanford Health’s nationally recognized occupational medicine services through Sanford OccMed Connect Clinic.

The new program allows companies in any part of Sanford’s coverage area access to Sanford experts in Thief River Falls, including occupational medicine services through local clinics, providing a convenient, seamless experience.

“The Connect Clinic is designed to create a pathway for our corporate customers across all locations to receive the comprehensive occupational medicine services at one of our regional clinics,” says Stephanie Murdock, Executive Director of Sanford OccMed. “This will allow employees to stay closer to their work and home, instead of traveling to one of our designated Sanford Occupational Medicine Clinics.”

Our services and programs include:

  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Employment physicals
  • Fit for Duty
  • Hearing conservation
  • Industrial hygiene
  • Injury prevention
  • Work related injury management

This program is the result of an idea that was born approximately two years ago. Sanford recognized the need to expand occupational medicine services to help keep area businesses healthy and productive. The program begins with a standardized framework of base services and communications within hub locations. The plan is expanded to include regional clinics, where the same guidelines are met.

“This Connect Clinic program allows companies in any Sanford area access to regulatory and service experts and services,” says Murdock. “Sanford OccMed will act as the liaison between companies and the Connect Clinic to ensure all appropriate services, paperwork and regulations are met.”
