“Occupational medicine is a key service for employers in our community,” said Dr. James Daskalos, who https://www.novahealth.com/occupational-medicine/will be leading BestMed’s Roseburg occupational medicine service line. “I’m thrilled to join BestMed’s Roseburg team to bring a broad-spectrum of occupational medicine services to local businesses and community members. While furthering accessible healthcare in Roseburg and treating employees back to health with the injured worker program, these range of services also promote long-term employee well-being and the financial health of local businesses.”
As a provider of accessible and quality medical care to Lane and Douglas counties, BestMed’s occupational medicine services include comprehensive testing, assessment and recovery treatments to help businesses minimize lost productivity, reduce healthcare costs, support long-term employee health. These benefits can ultimately save employers $5 to $161 with every dollar invested in personnel screenings. BestMed is partnering with local businesses to help companies hire qualified job candidates who are fit-for-duty, maintain optimal wellness of all employees, and ensure a safe return to work after accidents while reducing employer costs.
“BestMed knows first-hand the need for quality occupational medicine services in our community. These services are designed to ensure employers and employees have a reliable partner dedicated to the organizations safety and wellbeing,” said Bill Clendenen, BestMed Chief Executive Officer. “It has been found that 25 percent of employer healthcare costs are related to unhealthy lifestyles. By taking proactive care of our employees, we can promote both the health of workers and the financial health our businesses.”
