Clinic Description
The Occupational Health Clinical Center (OHCC), which is publicly funded, serves workers in three major regions encompassing 26 counties in New York State. The regional clinics are a patient-centered resource when workers know or suspect that their symptoms are job-related. The clinics also help workers assess their medical risks if exposed to asbestos, chemicals, solvents, dust, metals, radiation or other hazards.  

Since occupational illnesses arise from workplace conditions, they are highly preventable by altering those conditions. Worksite modifications or changes in work practices may prevent further health problems. Besides clinicians trained in occupational medicine, this specialty practice is also complemented by the skills of an industrial hygienist and a social worker.

Prevention of occupational illness is part of our mission as well, through screening and monitoring programs, education in hazard recognition, health hazard evaluations and data collection regarding occupational disease.

For an appointment or more information about our services, call the location of your choice.
