Work-Related Pain, Injury or Illness

The Student Health Center IS NOT an Urgent Care Center or Emergency Room. We DO NOT provide evaluation or treatment for work-related pain, injuries or illnesses for employees of the University of Houston or any other employer.

OSHA definition of work-relatedness: You must consider an injury or illness to be work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment either caused or contributed to the resulting condition or significantly aggravated a pre-existing injury or illness.

If it is determined that a patient has scheduled an appointment for pain, injury or illness that is work-related, the appointment will be canceled and the patient will be referred to an Urgent Care Center or Emergency Department.

Contact your employer for assistance in obtaining evaluation and treatment with an in-network healthcare facility or go to a local Urgent Care Center or Emergency Department.
