Injury Management

One of HealthWorks-WNY's primary functions is to evaluate an employee's ability to resume work after an extended injury or illness.  With expert medical care, rehabilitation program referrals and modified duty programs, HealthWorks-WNY can minimize time off the job and reduce the chance of permanent disability.   Our staff evaluates the availability of modified duty to facilitate returning an employee to work the same day or as soon as physically capable. HealthWorks-WNY prepares and motivates employees to look forward to an early recovery.


Employees with minor injuries can receive prompt evaluation and treatment at a HealthWorks-WNY facility with the goal of a rapid return to work.  All injury treatment is performed to meet and comply with NYS Worker's Compensation laws. 


A Work Status Report, including an employee's diagnosis, treatment and return-to-work status, is completed after each visit and sent to the employer.  Our physicians are available for phone and worksite consulations.
