Chief Operating Officer for KINNECT, Dave Hughes, said:
“We are delighted that icare has chosen KINNECT as one of the approved providers to deliver Workplace Rehabilitation services for these schemes and funds.”
“As one of the very few independent, privately-owned workplace rehabilitation and occupational health businesses in Australia, we provide a refreshing point of difference compared to other national providers. Demand for our complete suite of occupational health and workplace rehabilitation services has grown rapidly in recent years, particularly in metro and regional New South Wales. Appointment to the icare is wonderful recognition for the outcomes KINNECT has been achieving in the NSW workers compensation schemes”.
Prior to appointment to the icare Panel, only KINNECT customers who nominated us as their preferred rehabilitation provider could benefit from our range of services and highly skilled staff within NSW. Appointment to the panel will ensure that greater numbers of NSW employers and injured workers can benefit from our wrap around service delivery and integration of our Occupational Physicians to drive and support the health benefits of work. It will also ensure that we can continue to achieve our why and help more people get their life back on track.
