Occupational Medicine

Work Related Injuries Evaluation and Treatment

Access to medical care 24 hours a day, seven days a week is also critical in offering the best medical care possible for your employees. Our Urgent Care and Imaging Center and Occupational Medicine department can help you meet that need. In addition, Holy Cross Hospital Emergency Room is ready to meet your after-hours injury care needs.

We believe that communication is one of the keys to a successful recovery for your injured employee. To aid in that process, we provide timely treatment and duty status updates, patient support conferences and case management services. Our occupational health software program, SYSTOC, can provide periodic injury / illness reports to help track trends and expenses.

Cost Containment Services

Even with the best of prevention programs, work-related injuries still occur and sometimes it's a worker's compensation case that just won't go away. Your human resources manager has a full plate and may not have the expertise to work his / her way through the web of regulations and laws that are in place to protect the interest of the employee and employer. You need an expert in South Florida who not only knows the state worker's compensation laws but also has the medical knowledge to work with the physicians, insurance companies and attorneys. Here at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we are ready to meet your needs.
