Tyrone Hospital has launched the HealthForce Occupational Medicine Program at Tyrone Hospital.
Tyrone’s HealthForce program was developed through a partnership between Tyrone Hospital and Altoona Regional Health System to address the occupational medicine needs of employers in Northern Blair, Clearfield, and Southern Centre Counties.
“We recognized the need for enhanced occupational medicine services in the market area serviced by Tyrone Hospital, said Stephen Gildea, Tyrone Hospital CEO. “The partnership with Altoona Regional, which has a well established program, streamlined our program development process and got us to start-up more quickly.”
