Thunder Bay Clinic
North Western Region
OHCOW Thunder Bay is a satellite clinic of OHCOW Sudbury. Prior to 2010, the Northwestern area was within Sudbury's catchment area; however, it soon became evident that the need existed for a separate clinic for Northwestern Ontario. The Thunder Bay Clinic was opened in June of 2010 and is managed by Sudbury's Executive Director. The Clinic is staffed with a Client Service Coordinator, an Occupational Ergonomist and a visiting Occupational Physician. Further services, including Occupational Hygiene Assessment, are provided by the Sudbury Clinic as Thunder Bay is not a fully funded clinic.
Thunder Bay's catchment area includes communities to the west (Atikokan, Dryden, Fort Frances, Kenora, Red Lake, Sioux Lookout) and to the east (Geraldton, Marathon, Nipigon, Schreiber, Terrace Bay, and White River).
Major employment sectors are in natural resource based industries such as mining, forestry, energy and tourism. We partner with workers, employers, unions, and advocates. We provide the expertise to assist in the identification and elimination of occupational injuries and illnesses in the workplaces of our catchment area
