BJC and BarnesCare: Committed to Round-the-Clock Care
BarnesCare’s popular 24/7 on-call hotline now has a new number: 314.747.7950. BarnesCare clients and patients who utilize this service after-hours or on weekends and holidays have direct access to an occupational health provider for urgent needs. Please make a note of the new number and share it with your company supervisors and other key staff.

As part of our mission and position as market leader in occupational medicine services, BarnesCare and BJC HealthCare hospitals are committed to providing emergency and after-hours care to area employers through:
  • BarnesCare’s 24/7 on-call hotline for patient or employer questions after hours, on weekends or holidays.
  • Emergency and after-hours care for work-related injuries. When emergency care is needed, one of BJC’s eight metropolitan area hospitals is a short drive away. Our emergency department providers understand the subtle differences of work-related cases and, if needed, partner with BarnesCare to discuss required follow-up care, work restrictions and medications. Emergency department records and results from diagnostic tests performed at BJC hospitals are immediately available online for BarnesCare clinician review. This eliminates duplicate testing during follow-up visits and prevents the patient from having to carry case notes and test results from appointment to appointment.
  • Substance abuse testing services provided around the clock. This service is provided in conjunction with emergency or after-hours work-related injury and illness treatment at BJC hospitals. When required, a certified substance abuse testing technician can be dispatched to any metro area BJC emergency department to collect the required specimens for testing. Test results are reported 24-48 hours after collection.
