Our Organization

Our head administrative office

AOMS operates from a fully dedicated occupational medical facility in St. John's which is equipped and computerized to accommodate the provision of occupational medical services, as well as the administrative / accounting aspects needed to provide these services efficiently.

Dr. O'Shea is a full-time occupational medical consultant with the organization and provides consultancy services to most of our clients, as well as providing medical control and occupational medical advice to all other health care staff. He is a fully certified occupational physician of the Canadian Board of Occupational Medicine, June 1995, having received his Associate Membership of the Canadian Board of Occupational Medicine in 1990.

There are four other physicians in the AOMS office in St. John's, Dr. Charles McVicker, Dr. S.A. Walker, Dr. Natalie Battcock and Dr. Gene Thomas. We utilize the expertise of a specialized physician, Dr. Ken Ledez, who is an expert in hyperboric and diving medicine, and who is significantly experienced in the area of offshore medicine. He provides ongoing technical advice and support to our organization, as well as performing independent and pre-employment medical examinations. He assists us in the setting up of remote medical services in terms of acute medical emergencies, trauma management, etc. He is a specialist in the field of anaesthesia and aeromedicine and assists us in this regard also.

We have established a network of designated examining physicians across the island of Newfoundland and in Labrador as well as in the Maritimes and in other provinces throughout Canada. These physicians perform pre-employment medicals and independent medical assessments on our behalf for our clients and report directly to the occupational medical advisor in the AOMS head office in St. John's. They are provided with client specific and AOMS examining physician guidelines to ensure adherence to the principles of practice of occupational medicine.

Other Associations

Because of our clients' needs, we have formalized associations with other health care providers across the province and are about to undertake the same process in the Maritimes. We have, for example, formalized relationships with Physiotherapy Associated here in St. John's, Gander Physiotherapy, and East Coast physiotherapy Associates in Corner Brook. We utilize Occupational Therapy services such as Functional Capacity Evaluations, work hardening, fitness testing etc. when necessary and have formalized relationships with Integrated Occupational Health Services in St. John's, F.I.T. for Work in Grand Falls and F.I.T. for Work in Corner Brook. We have developed associations with vocational rehabilitation experts, Provincial Psychological Services here in St. John's to assist in the areas of vocational rehabilitation, stress management, critical incidents stress debriefing, and Employee Assistance Programs.
