As part of our mission and position as market leader in occupational medicine services, BarnesCare and BJC HealthCare 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. Call 314.747.7950 for direct access to an occupational health provider for urgent needs.
- 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. 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.
