Health on the job: staying well and preventing injury

Many of us spend the majority of our waking hours on the job. That's why Mission Hospital offers a variety of exceptional services to help you stay healthy, prevent injury, and promote safety at your workplace. Many local companies include these programs in their health benefits packages.  Talk to your employer to learn if these services are available to you through your place of work:
