Grand River Health and Safety Center located at the Battlement Mesa Medical Campus works hard to keep you on the job. Living and working Western Garfield County presents unique employment challenges and hazards. We are well acquainted with the specialized work of the gas and oil industry, construction, transportation and other physically demanding vocations. For instance, Grand River Health sees more hand and upper extremity trauma than other regional hospitals and as a result we have added new staff and services to evaluate, treat and rehabilitate these workplace injuries.

Whatever your work-related health needs, employers and employees can depend on Grand River Health and Safety Center for reliable and timely results. Our physicians, physician assistants, occupational and physical therapists make sure you are ready for work, providing all the necessary tests and assessments, so you can be hired, stay safe on the job and continue to make a living.
