What Our Clients Are Saying

“NEBH has become an essential element of our workers’ compensation and injury-on-duty programs as our medical partner. Our employees receive some of the best medical care in the state, yet we have managed to avoid the dramatic increase in medical care expenditures that many other cities and towns have experienced. The Occupational Health Program at NEBH continues to be our most valuable partner in our workers’ compensation program at the Town of Brookline.”
