Create a Healthier Workforce

Caring for the health and well-being of your employees benefits everyone and boosts your company’s bottom line. At North Kansas City Hospital, it's our business to understand the unique needs of employers and find ways to help them promote employee wellness.

Our Occupational Health and Employer Wellness department is the only one of its kind in the Kansas City area. Our services help you meet regulatory requirements, assess and improve the health of your employees, reduce workers' compensation claims and prepare for unexpected emergencies.

We offer a flexible, hospital-based partnership with comprehensive, coordinated services, including immediate referral and treatment of injured workers, in one convenient location.

Meritas Health Occupational Medicine Clinics

Meritas Health Occupational Medicine has two convenient locations for your business needs. The clinic on the North Kansas City Hospital campus and the clinic in Riverside both offer a comprehensive range of services—from employment physicals and drug screening to acute care for injuries.

Round-the-Clock Services

North Kansas City Hospital’s Emergency Department is a Level II Trauma Center, ready to serve you when emergencies arise. Our highly trained staff understands the need for treatment and immediate follow-up in a clinic setting, so employees can return to work as soon as appropriate.

Our ED and Occupational Health staffs excel at clear communication with your company representatives. On the next business day following an injured employee’s visit to the ED, we call with an update your employee's injury. If the employee is admitted to North Kansas City Hospital, our nurse liaison keeps you and the insurance provider updated on employee’s condition and progress.

When you need routine healthcare or testing for your employees outside regular office hours, our after-hours care services include an accredited lab that tests for drugs and alcohol (via breath) on a periodic, random, for-cause, post-accident, return-to-duty and/or follow-up testing basis. You receive results by phone within 24 hours, unless a non-negative result is received. These results may take 48-72 hours to receive.

Workers’ Rehab Center

When employees need help transitioning from an injury back to work, the Workers’ Rehab Center at the Meritas Health Occupational Medicine Clinic is the next step. Our physical and occupational therapists focus on safely restoring your employee to health and full functionality for work and everyday activities.

Laboratory Services

We offer an accredited laboratory for post-accident, random, and for-cause drug and alcohol screenings. Our nurse coordinator phones and mails results to your company representative and answers questions related to our drug screening program.

Assisting Your Team

Beyond the treatment and care of your employees, North Kansas City Hospital offers a variety of other ways to help you and your internal medical team. Our medical experts can make on-site visits evaluate the need for workplace safety recommendations and enhanced training for your company’s first-aid providers. Several of our Emergency Department physicians are medical directors for Northland employers, and all are experienced in first responder training.
