The Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony at KVH Workplace Health, a new service that focuses on occupational medicine.
The ceremony will be held at the new clinic on Friday, September 29 at noon. In addition to the ribbon cutting ceremony, the public is invited to tour the new facility and meet the staff between noon and 1 p.m.
The KVH Workplace Health facility is located behind Kittitas Valley Urgent Care at 702 E Mountain View Ave, Suite 2, in Ellensburg, midway between KVH Hospital and KVH Physical Therapy. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Walk-ins or appointments are accepted.
Occupational medicine is a healthcare specialty that focuses on the maintenance of health in the workplace. If workplace injuries do occur, occupational medicine works in conjunction with Workers’ Compensation programs to treat employees and return them to work as quickly as possible.
In many cases, an employee’s relationship with KVH Workplace Health will begin even before their first day of work. KVH Workplace Health offers pre-employment drug screening and examinations that are required before beginning work, like fitness for duty tests or medical examinations for commercial driver’s licenses in Washington State.
