  • Bus driver physicals
  • Bus drivers may obtain the required physical examination through Memorial Occupational Health.

    Please review the DOT Exam Readiness Questionnaire, which may answer common questions and provide information regarding any documentation you need to bring with you to the exam. While bus physicals are not DOT physicals, there are areas that defer to DOT? with regard to injury or illness. See DOT Exam Readiness Questionnaire on the resource page.

  • Department of Transportations (DOT) exams
  • Our Certified Medical Examiners perform DOT exams to determine if a person is medically fit for duty, based on national criteria. Please review the DOT Exam Readiness Questionnaire, which may answer common questions and provide information regarding any documentation you need to bring with you to the exam. See DOT Exam Readiness Questionnaire on the resource page.

  • Environmental exposure exams
  • Environmental exposure exams currently include those for asbestos and silica. Other environmental exposures can be considered. Please call 217-876-4900 to discuss.

  • Fit for Duty/ Return to Work exams
  • Our providers perform Fit for Duty exams to determine if an employee is physically and psychologically able to perform their current job in a safe manner. These exams are completed for workers if a non-work related injury or illness has occurred in order to determine job fitness or if accommodations are needed. They may also be completed for workers who want to return to work after recovering from an injury.

  • Hazmat/Hazwoper physicals
  • Hazmat/ Hazwoper physicals are completed by our providers for workers exposed to hazardous chemicals or materials that could cause health problems. Examination requirements vary based on possible exposure.

  • Independent Medical Evaluations (IME)
  • An Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) is the evaluation of an injured party, which utilizes an independent medical professional to issue an unbiased opinion on an injury. Our physician is able to perform these exams as an independent third party. These exams do not include treatment or medical advice but provide an employer or individual with an evaluation.

  • Pre-placement physicals
  • Memorial Occupational Health provides pre-placement physicals, drug screenings, vaccinations and titers.

  • Worker compensation injuries
  • We offer work injury care and provide a Worker’s Compensation Claims Specialist to help guide you through the process.
