Functional Capacity Evaluations – Through Northwestern Rehabilitation, we have the expertise to  conduct Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) to provide a systematic process of measuring and assessing an individual’s work capacity. 
Injured Worker Care – For minor work-related injuries and illnesses, the team at Northwestern Urgent Care  in NMC’s Medical Office Building in St. Albans and on Route 7 in Georgia routinely treats acute work-related injuries on a walk-in basis such as minor lacerations (we do suturing), burns, foreign bodies in the eye, sprains and strains, and more. Emergent Medical Needs are treated within the NMC Emergency Department. 
Outpatient Physical Therapy – Northwestern Rehabilitation provides a complete industrial rehabilitation program located in the Cobblestone Building. Our therapists are trained in both acute and chronic care. Each patient program is individually designed to meet the needs of the patient.
Work Rehabilitation (Return to Work) Program – Following evidence-based guidelines, Northwestern Rehabilitation offers physician-directed, customized work rehabilitation programs for functional restoration. Individuals are transitioned back to work during the program whenever possible. Programs are tailored to the individual needs of each client for optimum outcomes. The primary goal of the program is to provide quality treatment that leads to maximum medical improvement (MMI) by the end of the program when indicated per the patient’s diagnosis.
Respirator Clearance + Fit Testing – Respirator Clearance is offered to those employees who are required to wear a respirator at work in order to meet the criteria of the OSHA regulations governing respiratory medical clearance (29 CFR 1910. 134 and Appendix C – Respirator Medical Evaluation Questionnaire).
Drug & Alcohol Testing – Our program is designed to meet all major regulatory agency requirements. A secure drug screen collection process is available at Northwestern Urgent Care. Our specimen collectors are trained and qualified under 49 CFR Part 40 Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing, Urine Collection and Breath Testing procedures. Our secure bathroom facilities are specifically designed to help prevent specimen adulteration.
