Center for Corporate Health

Consultative Services


Occupational health consultations

At The Summa Center for Corporate Health, we understand that there is much more to occupational health than treating injuries. Our physicians understand the difficulties employers have with state and federal agencies that regulate workplace health and safety issues. To help employers make sense of the complexities of those regulations, we offer occupational health consultations, including policy and procedure reviews, fitness-for-duty and return-to-work evaluations, work-site tours, job analysis assistance, etc.
