Medical and Rehabilitation Needs of Injured Workers

At HealthBridge, we offer specialized post-acute services that address the medical and rehabilitation needs of injured workers. The key in meeting the unique requirements of our workers’ compensation population is blending the clinical expertise, high staff-to-injured worker ration (clinical and therapy) and the least restrictive setting to allow these injured workers to thrive medically, socially and psychologically.

Injured workers recovering from complex medical issues such as a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or long-term repercussions stemming from a work-related injury require specialized care, rehabilitation and options to address pain management. Our integrated care team is equipped to address all of these needs. Injured workers will have access to the latest, most innovative treatments, equipment and medical devices to address their distinct problems.

HealthBridge offers the highest-quality complex care, transitional care and high-intensity rehab services to meet the needs of injured workers at every stage of recovery. Our comprehensive and coordinated approach includes individualized treatment plans, an evidence-based treatment approach and a return to work/home program.
