Occupational Medicine for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa

Occupational Medicine help to contain the high cost of employee health and promote wellness. CHI Health in metro Omaha, Nebraska and Council Bluffs, Iowa offers one single, comprehensive Occupational Medicine program at eight locations. We also offer urgent care services after business hours and emergency services, 24 hours a day, 365 days/year.

No other occupational health program is supported by so many medical resources helping employees maintain healthy and productive lives.

And, because everything is coordinated from one source, it's easy for everyone to use and can be customized to fit exactly what you need.
