At St. John’s, we recognize the tremendous impact employee medical costs have on corporate profits. We are committed to doing everything possible to keep those costs down. Through our various screenings, for example, we may pinpoint a potential problem that otherwise might have resulted in lengthy treatment and hospitalization. Identification of these issues can also reduce absenteeism and therefore increase productivity.

Pre-employment screenings can detect medical conditions that may affect job performance. These screenings also serve as a valuable baseline for future examinations and later evaluations of injuries/illnesses.

On-the-job injuries are assessed promptly.  We have an established network of medical, surgical, behavioral health, and substance abuse providers to whom we can refer your employees if needed based on your individualized contract.

We will communicate our evaluation of your employee and, perhaps most importantly, how long they are expected to be out of work. This will assist you in your scheduling and save work time.

We are prepared to meet your health and safety needs. We strongly believe that together, we can make a difference.
