Messiah Lifeways

Pre-Employment Physical

Pre-Employment Physical/Drug Test/Tuberculosis Skin Test (TST)

It is the policy of Messiah Lifeways that each prospective team member be medically screened to determine that essential functions of the job can be accomplished. All job offers are contingent upon successful passing of the physical exam and drug screen. These screenings must be completed prior to attending new team member orientation.

Where to go for the Pre-Employment Physical & Drug Test/How long will it last?

The physical and drug screens will be performed at AllBetterCare Urgent Care Center. The three locations for the physicals and drug screens are:

Mechanicsburg Office 6481 Carlisle Pike Mechanicsburg PA,17050 

Carlisle Office 1175 Walnut Bottom Road Carlisle PA, 17015 

Harrisburg Office 2323 Linglestown Road Harrisburg, PA 17110 

Hours are 8am-8pm 7 days a week, no appointment necessary.

The physical/drug test typically lasts about 30 minutes. If a chest x-ray is necessary due to a prior positive TB test, please allow an additional hour to complete that test.

 Please be sure to bring the following items to your appointment:  

  • Any prescriptions you are currently taking or have taken in the last month (in their current prescription bottles)
  • A valid government issued photo ID (driver's license, state ID card, military ID or passport)

 Note:  Please be prepared to give a urine specimen for the drug screening

Where do I complete the Tuberculosis Skin Test (TST)?

The TST is done at the Messiah Lifeways at Messiah Village campus. The process takes 12 days to complete. You do not need to make an appointment to complete this screening. You must have your TST completed prior to attending new team member orientation.

Please Note:

If you are under the age of 18, parental consent is needed prior to having the screening completed. If you had a TST completed within 1 year from your tentative date of hire, please bring in proof of this screening. If you have had a positive TST and a chest x-ray completed within the last 5 years, please bring proof.
