experienced Providers Close to Your Work Place

When an injury occurs in the work setting, supervisors or managers should direct patients to Sindecuse Health Center for treatment. An accident report form is required to be filled out and submitted to WMU Environmental Health and Safety, who monitor worker's comp claims and cases. Injured employees will be seen as soon as possible in the clinic and returned to work if possible. With an on-site X-ray, lab services, a pharmacy and physical therapists, patients receive immediate medical attention at one facility and during one visit.

Sindecuse Health Center’s physicians, PAs and physical therapists will coordinate worker’s compensation medical care and return to work assignments. The health center provides rehabilitation, ergonomic evaluations, pre-placement exams, and disability management for Western Michigan University employees.
