Personnel medicine with a personal touch.


At Northwest Occupational Medicine we believe in a fair and balanced approach to occupational medicine that concentrates on reducing the risks and vulnerabilities companies and their employees may encounter.

The goal of an occupational medicine program is to ensure that the highest standards of occupational health and safety can be achieved and maintained.  The goal of our program is to incorporate these standards into a customized plan designed to meet the needs, abilities and resources of the clients with whom we work and in a way that is practical and cost effective.

Relationships are vital to us. We work closely with our clients and their specific needs to increase safety, productivity and compliance while decreasing injury, lost time and healthcare costs.

Our program is lead by our Medical Director Dr. Bruce Edwards who is trained in Occupational Medicine, Aerospace Medicine and Preventative Medicine. Dr. Edwards is the former Chief of Aerospace Medicine at the Pentagon and a published author with a Masters in Public Health from Harvard University. He offers a wealth of specialized knowledge in this specific field of study.
