Sanford Health O.P.C. mobileMED unit has arrived
Bismarck, N.D.—Sanford Health has unveiled one of the mobile units for its innovative new service – O.P.C. mobileMED. The service will provide health care services directly in the oil fields for oil-producing companies (O.P.C.) and their employees. The key to Sanford Health’s plan centers on partnerships with companies serving the Bakken oil fields and includes deploying two mobile clinics on wheels that can move around to meet the needs of employers and one modular clinic – initially in Watford City.
The mobile and modular clinics will provide work-related and non-work-related health care services, such as employment physicals and screenings, and acute care for sore throats, coughs and other illnesses. Sanford also will do lab work, X-rays, provide access to telemedicine and make referrals for advanced injuries. Employers will be able to customize their program by choosing from a menu of services that fit their specific needs.
The mobile unit will be staffed by a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, nurse and driver who is also a medical technician or radiology technician.
The project will mean an initial investment of $2.7 million along with $4.8 million in annual operating expenses. By being in the heart of the oil fields, Sanford Health will focus on building and maintaining a healthy work force with convenient medical services that allow employees, who have an industry-wide 80 percent injury rate, to feel better soon and get back to work more quickly.
Employers interested in learning more about O.P.C. mobileMED should call (866) 310-5222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
