The session will teach area business owners how they and their employees may be affected by occupational health and medical insurance issues, such as workers' compensation.

The Seltzer Group was looking for a similarly renowned partner that could fulfill those offerings on the occupational medical side. Since both The Seltzer Group and St. Luke's Miners Memorial Hospital serve many of the same communities, there was a commonality among their goals and services. It was therefore a logical choice for them to pursue a partnership in which they could support the community together.

St. Luke's Miners Memorial Hospital will now deliver occupational health and wellness services to the Seltzer Group's client base through a comprehensive approach for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries to employees at businesses throughout the area.
