Companies concerned about protecting employees from COVID-19 have a new resource for workplace health, safety and confidence.
Metro Health – University of Michigan Health is offering the expertise of its new Health Consulting Services team to help companies reopen – or to improve safeguards for those already open. Companies interested in the program can call 616-252-4904.
“As a major employer ourselves, we understand the concerns that companies have,” said Dr. Raki Pai, President, Medical Group and Chief Population Health. “When the pandemic arrived, we overhauled our facilities in record time, adjusting the physical space and operational practices. We succeeded because of our medical and infection-prevention expertise, and we want to share that with employers,” said Pai.
Health Consulting Services is designed with the understanding that companies face complex and individualized challenges to reopening.
“They need support beyond temperature screenings,” Pai said. “The advantage of our program is that it is comprehensive and completely scalable, supported by the entire array of services at Metro Health.”
Services are customized for what each company needs, but may include:
- Health education
- Survey tools
- Return to work, health, and infection-prevention consulting
- Fever screenings
- High-risk employee testing
- Team medical surveillance
- Contact tracing, and more
The program is an extension of Metro Health’s Concierge Executive Health Program, providing familiarity with corporate needs and a wide range of business settings. With two out of three Americans saying they would be uncomfortable returning to work, Metro Health helps companies reassure their staff.
“COVID-19 is likely to be a health concern for the foreseeable future,” said Pai. “Our consulting practice is solely focused on protecting businesses, their employees and customers. Metro Health is pleased to do our part in helping get people back to work.”
