We are spending longer hours at work. It is only logical that companies understand the importance of employee health in relation to the performance of their business. Corporate Health Programs have been welcomed by the corporate sector because there is a direct relation between staff health and business bottom line. It has also been noticed that employees recognize, acknowledge, appreciate, and reciprocate when their employer cares for their well-being. In recent years, employee wellness programs have become popular around the world.
A healthy workforce benefits the business in many ways:

  • Improved performance & productivity
  • Lowered absenteeism

Work Cover

Injuries and accidents are part of life and certain jobs are more prone to such incidents than others As we are aware, medical practitioners play a critical role in improving health and return to work outcomes for injured workers.

How it works:

In the event of a work-related injury the staff member will be triaged by our on-site nursing staff and the General Practitioner/s on duty at our medical centre. All necessary medical support and treatment will be given to the patient including investigations relating to their injury. In certain cases, we may use Telehealth services to assist our patients.

Upon completion of the treatment, a WorkCover certificate of capacity will be issued with a treatment summary. Both documents will be sent to the company as directed and a copy will be supplied to the injured worker.
At Serendib Healthcare, we offer services for the overall management of an injured worker’s recovery, rehabilitation and return to work, including:
