Occupational Medicine Program at UPMC Chautauqua

What Is Occupational Medicine or Work Health?

A healthy workforce is crucial to the success of any business.

Occupational medicine helps prevent injuries and illness in the workplace by learning a person's risk factors before you hire them.

This helps you make sure they'll be able to perform their job duties. It also makes sure injured workers are fit to return to work.

Our Occupational Health Program provides health and wellness services that keep your staff healthy and ready to work. We partner with you to design the right program to meet the health assessment needs of your workers.
