Marshall County Commissioner Kevin Overmyer said during theme commissioners meeting Monday that he’s found an alternative for drug testing, workman comp issues, and employment physicals.
Overmyer said the county received an email from Saint Joseph Health System on October 25th stating that Urgent Care would be working out of the Walkerton location for the remainder of the year. The email said for Workman Comp issues they would like patients to call ahead and use the Walkerton location. If there is no one there, then the patient should go to the Emergency Room Department at the Plymouth hospital.
Overmyer said he was on a zoom call with Gary Neidig from ITAMCO and they were discussing this new information from the hospital. Neidig said his company uses DOT Stop by Loves Truck Stop.
Last Friday Commission Overmyer went out and talked to the doctor at DOT Stop and got the paperwork to allow the county to use their services. Starting Monday, November 7th DOT Stop will be doing the county’s workman comp claims, drug testing, and DOT employment physicals.
Overmyer said he wanted to keep county employees from having to travel. The DOT Stop is open 24 hours.
