Our Services

OHS is available to be the first point of contact for faculty and staff who are injured or ill at work. Staffed with compassionate and seasoned nurse practitioners, physicians, and registered nurses, OHS will evaluate injuries, provide first aid and treatment, and help employees get any additional medical attention needed. The provider will help complete an Incident/Accident Report and open a worker's compensation claim. They will also help file for a leave of absence, notify the employee’s manager, and walk the employee through the process so they can focus on getting healthy.
