VSON Occupational Medicine
Businesses can now elect VSON as their primary Occupational Healthcare provider
Vail-Summit Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery(VSON) launched an Occupational Medicine program in August of 2020, offering a consolidated healthcare solution to organizations and businesses in Summit County.
VSON now sees and treats a variety of injuries from the onset. Say, for example, your employee slips and injures themselves at work; that individual would now have the option of coming directly to us.
VSON's Occupational Medicine option is a one-stop-shop program.
A designated physician assistant will evaluate injured workers who come to VSON and then make the appropriate referrals.* If it is an orthopaedic injury, patients have the option of seeing an in-house VSON orthopaedic or Sports Medicine specialist. Patients requiring physical therapy will have the choice of seeing a physical therapist at Avalanche PT, located adjacent to our office.
In-house, we treat a wide range of orthopaedic injuries, back injuries, and concussions. VSON has in-house imaging, including X-ray and MRI. In many instances, when a worker sustains an injury on the job, that employee needs to go to multiple treatment locations. At VSON, we offer primary worker's compensation care, x-ray and MRI, physical therapy, and orthopaedic treatments, all at one location.**
VSON's Occupational Medicine program aims to benefit the Summit County community by providing a new, dynamic choice for employers. Our services are all located in one location, reducing the stress and uncertainty that often comes with worker's compensation claims and work-related injuries.

* In instances of non-Orthopaedic-related injuries, VSON will refer patients to other providers as necessary.
** If the injured worker is already established with a physical therapist or orthopaedic practice, VSON may refer said worker to those providers as long as they are in-network with the employer's worker's compensation insurance.
