Wentworth-Douglass opens new Occupational Health Program
Wentworth-Douglass Hospital has opened a new Occupational Health Program, providing a comprehensive suite of services requested by area employers, filling a void in the community.
A major provider closed in the region last year and leadership at Wentworth-Douglass says they decided to start their own program after fielding many requests from area employers.
“Historically, Wentworth-Douglass has responded to community need and for many years this need was being well-served by a long-time market provider. However, when local services were closed, we started receiving phone calls from the community, so we responded. I’ve worked with Wentworth-Douglass for 34 years, and that’s what we’ve always done – we prioritize community need,” said Nancy Correia, Director of Urgent Care Services.
The new program offers pre-employment physicals, drug testing, immunizations and much more at two convenient locations attached to the Express Care facilities at 65 Calef Highway in Lee and 701 Central Avenue in Dover. Work-related accidents and injuries will be coordinated through our urgent care and emergency service programs.
“Stepping up to meet community need is yet another reason why Wentworth-Douglass is the hospital of choice in this area” said Dr. Lukas Kolm who serves as Medical Director for this new program.
Occupational Health Nurse Navigator, Tiffany Parker works directly with employers to create customized programs to meet organizational needs. “Our goal is to work directly with area businesses to fulfill their service needs and make it as easy as possible for their employees to access Occupational Health services,” said Tiffany Parker, Nurse Navigator for Wentworth-Douglass Occupational Health.
