Occupational Medicine

Caring for local workers

Local business and industry is encouraged to explore the benefits of the Occupational Medicine Program at Jones Memorial Hospital. The services available include:

  • Post Offer Employment Testing (POET): A physical test that screens a potential employee to see if they are able to perform their physical job demands. The purpose is to match the potential employee to a specific job, in order to minimize the risk of future physical injury.
  • Quantitative Job Demands Analyses (QJDA): A POET is developed from a deeper process called a Quantitative Job Demands Analysis. A QJDA is developed from the culmination of discussing the specific job with department employees, department managers, and observation of that job by a trained and credentialed therapist.
  • Pre-Employment Physicals
  • Injured Employee Physicals
  • Urine Drug Screens (DOT and non-DOT)
  • Fit Mask Testing
