Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Business Health Center is moving this week to the lower level of the three-story medical building called the 4th Street Health Plaza.
The move is going to enable the center to consolidate its services into one area instead of throughout the hospital.
The center offers treatment to injured workers, disability ratings and case management. It also provides pre-employment testing, such as drug tests and fitness assessments. In 2010, the center had 9,785 visits.
Greg Windholz, director of the center, said the move is going to be more convenient for clients and staff.
The clinic is now inside the emergency department, where clients check in. If a client needs physical therapy, they go to Kreider Rehabilitation Services on the second floor of the hospital, and if they need a treadmill electrocardiogram test, they go to the second floor of the health plaza.
Until this week, the center’s nine full-time employees worked out of office space on the third floor of LMH.
Windholz said the center will begin seeing clients in the new location on Monday, where all of the services will be offered.
The Business Health Center also will be focusing more on wellness in the workplace. It will provide more prevention activities and testing for employers. For example, the center can help identify some of the chronic diseases among employees and ways to help prevent them.
