In a recent interview with WorkWell Provider, Campbell County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) stated that WorkWell programs have not only helped to create and maintain a safer work force and environment, they have also had an impact on CCMH revenues and cost savings, with 10% of hospital income coming from the Functional Health/Industrial Rehab department. According to Brenda Robertson, Functional Health Supervisor, “CCMH workers’ compensation costs have decreased over 50% in the last 5 years due to programs the Occupational Health Department has implemented. These programs include ergonomic assessments, immediate assessment of injured employees at the CCMH Walk in Clinic or Emergency Room, and use of pre-work and return-to-work screens developed from our job analysis and functional job descriptions.” Click here to read the full story.
