Medical Providers for Work-Related Injuries

Maine Workers’ Compensation Law entitles employers to select health care providers to service injured/ill employees within the first ten days of treatment. Bates College has selected two local, hospital-affiliated providers for this purpose, Occupational Health and Rehabilitation (OH&R) at59 East Avenue, Lewiston, or 777-8816; and Work Medat 77 Bates Street, Suite 10 Lewiston,or 753-3080.
