Physician members of wsib clinic
MSH has opened a new clinic in partnership with WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) and OWN (Ontario Workers Network).
The WSIB clinic is a specialty clinic for orthopaedic patients with upper and lower extremity injuries. This clinic is for patients who are experiencing chronic injuries and have not been able to return to work. This clinic is not for someone who has just injured themselves and is in need of immediate medical attention.
This new clinic offers patients a comprehensive assessment, access to surgeon, physiotherapist and rehabilitation services with the goal of getting patients back to work within 9-12 weeks. Following assessment patients will receive services within 10 days if indicated by the surgeon.
WSIB services are available to all employed individuals in Ontario regardless of their economic status. Patients are referred to the clinic by WSIB referral only.
