Employee Health opens earlier for convenience

On Monday, April 20, Employee Health began opening at 7 a.m., and the response has been dramatic.

“Today, we’ve already seen eight people before we would have normally opened,” said Frances Toole, Director of Employee Health.

The additional hour was added to make employee health visits more convenient for night shift workers, who previously had to wait until 8 a.m.

Now, the main Employee Health office on Pope Street is open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The smaller hospital location (BA building, South entrance) will continue to be open Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m.

The office handles everything from annual health screenings to posthire physicals, worker injuries, and much more. Please remember all services require an appointment to be seen in either location. Call today with your questions or needs. 706-721-3418.
