Vail-Summit Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery is now offering an exciting new occupational medicine option. This new program, which launched in August of 2020, provides a consolidated healthcare option to organizations and businesses in Summit County.
VSON Occupational Medicine is lead by Zach Feldman, PA, who conducted an informational webinar about the program on Wednesday, December 16th. The session was geared toward business and HR professionals in Summit County interested in healthcare options for their organization.
"We are a primary occupational health provider," said Feldman. "Essentially, what this means for you, is that should you have injured workers, you can send them straight to us at VSON."
While Vail-Summit Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery is a leader in sports medicine, our occupational healthcare program doesn't only treat orthopaedic and sports-related injuries.
"I will see all injury types," said Feldman. "If the injury is something that I don't feel comfortable with or that I feel needs to be referred out to a specialist, I've established a good referral network that includes dentists, mental health professionals, eye professionals, and more."
VSON worker's comp benefits the employee by providing a myriad of treatment options under one roof. Feldman sees and treats injuries from the onset. Patients who require further care will then be referred to one of our in-house orthopaedic specialists as necessary and will also have the option of visiting Avalanche Physical Therapy for ongoing rehabilitation.
VSON also provides in-house imaging, including X-RAY and MRI.
"One of the great things about VSON is that, in most instances, we don't need to send your injured employees all over the county to receive good care," said Feldman. "We've got so much under one roof, and it's quite convenient for everybody."
If you are interested in learning more about VSON's Occupational Medicine program, please call 970-668-3633 and ask for Zach Feldman, PA, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
