Director Dr. Noppadol Noppakhun formally opened the center Jan. 24, noting that in additional to public health services, the hospital also must reach out to area factories and businesses.
Officials cut the ribbon to officially open Samitivej Hospital’s new Occupational Medicine Center.
“We are located in the middle of an industrial sector with various businesses, each of which contains personnel as the heart of the operation. Therefore, the hospital has decided to open an occupational medicine center to care for these employees,” Dr. Noppadol said.
The Occupational Medicine Center will design health-care programs for corporations and offer annual checkups for employees. It also will treat work-related diseases and accidents, provide vaccination services and other treatments.
In addition, the center will offer factory inspections and health consultations, provide health education and workplace safety services.
