Which IHA Location(s) will your employees visit?

I confirm that the above selected services are correct for the needs of my company. Employees requesting the above services will be approved by my company. By checking this box you agree to Terms & Conditions (Located below this form).

Thank you for considering Immediate Health Associates (IHA), (Wedgewood / Westar / Newark Valley / Sunbury Urgent Care), for your company’s Occupational Medicine needs.

When sending someone to our Urgent Care for your drug screens, physicals, flu shots, and/or COVID-19 testing we ask you send a letter with your company’s letter head, requesting the specific service you want done. This gives us clear instructions on what is to be done. It also avoids someone telling us their needs incorrectly or having to call your office to confirm this is who you sent and for what.

Pre-employment physicals are usually completed on our health forms. If you have any special instructions regarding the physical needs of your employees, please communicate this with the nurse manager at the Urgent Care, so we can accommodate them on the physical form. Once physicals are completed here, we fax them back to the company, or we hand the physical form back to the employee for them to provide to their employer.

Any positive drug test results are sent to a medical review officer for further testing. We use Doctors Review Service. It is all a part of the drug screen cost quoted on the information sheet.
