INDustrial-HealthSterling, Virginia – April 4, 2014 – Inova Health System, a not-for-profit health care system located in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area that serves more than two million people each year, and Industrial Rehabilitation Services, the leading provider of industrial rehabilitation services for the injured worker, have formed a strategic partnership – Industrial Health, LLC – which will open April 7 in Sterling, Virginia.  Industrial Health, LLC will provide quality treatment, diagnosis, and care to worker’s compensation patients located throughout Northern Virginia.

Inova Health System consists of five hospitals, including the area’s only Level 1 Trauma Center and Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care unit.  Inova encompasses many health services including the nationally recognized Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, Inova Translational Medicine Institute on genomics, the Inova Neuroscience Institute and the Inova Rehabilitation Center.

Industrial Rehabilitation Services, unlike any other rehabilitation services, works exclusively with worker’s compensation cases and adheres to the Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) set forth by the Work Loss Data Institute.  The ODG provides the most up-to-date evidence-based medical treatment and rehabilitation timetables used to determine disability duration guidelines. Our systematic approach progresses the injured worker through the stages of rehabilitation using objective clinical measures, not solely based on subjective pain ratings.

We specialize in reintroducing each injured worker to full or modified work levels.  Every individual plan utilizes simulations and physical conditioning to restore workers’ functionality.

The partnership between Inova and Industrial Rehabilitation Services brings together the expertise of two highly regarded health care organizations to provide highly trained staff and services to Northern Virginia and the surrounding areas.

Services Offered:
Functional Capacity Evaluations; Work Conditioning & Work Hardening; Impairment Rating/Permanent Partial Disability; Jobsite Analysis; Pre-employment/Post-offer Testing

Our Commitment:
“Inova’s service promise is that we seek every opportunity to meet the unique needs of each person we are privileged to serve – every time, every touch.”  Jeff Carr, Corporate & Consumer Services Growth Officer, Inova Health System.

“Industrial Health exclusively treats workers compensation patients, and we are Dedicated to Case Resolution of the Injured Worker” Anderson Dart, PT, DPT Director.
