Returning From Leave


Texas Health has a return-to-work process to help ensure your return to work is as smooth as possible. Regardless of the reason for your leave, whether it is a medical, personal or family leave, you must be cleared through Employee Health prior to being scheduled to work.

Clearing through Employee Health at least 3 days prior to your return to work date is the best way to guarantee your access to computer systems has been reinstated on the day of your return. Failure to clear through Employee Health can result in system access delays and missed PTO accrual.

How to Return to Work

Make an appointment with Employee Health.

  • Please call 682-236-5599 to schedule your return to work assessment with your entity Employee Health department
  • If your leave was due to your own illness or injury, you must bring your health care provider’s release to return to work to your appointment with Employee Health.

Contact your manager.  

Let your manager know when you plan to return to work.  

Modified Duty

If you were on leave due to your own health condition, and your physician says you may return to work with temporary restrictions, Texas Health may be able to accommodate those restrictions under the Modified Duty program. Contact your manager and your entity’s Employee Health Nurse to discuss your options.
