Employee Memo from Scott Campbell, CEO
In the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, our Bay Medical family has been foremost in our thoughts. A few of the services we have provided to our staff in these difficult times are free meals in the café and free gasoline. It has been a pleasure to see how providing these basic needs have truly helped our staff.
As we work to clean-up and repair our facility so that we can resume hospital services, it is now time to get back to normal, or rather our “new normal”. Utilities and other services are being restored in our community and gas is now more readily available. Our free gas and café meals will end after Friday, Oct. 26. Employees who were hired prior to Sept. 16 will be able to use their badges to charge meals in the café, however those who were hired afterwards will need cash temporarily until a system update can be completed.
We must also ask that all employees enter the facility through the main lobby entrance only. With our aggressive repair and construction schedule, some areas of the facility are blocked off. For your safety, please ensure you use this entrance and sign in and out at the desk. We must also try to limit visitors in the building so we do not impede the progress of our contractors. As a reminder, if you are scheduled to work, please wear the appropriate scrubs for your department.
While we are trying to establish our new normal, we realize that there are still many employees in need. Human Resources has been conducting an employee needs assessment survey and we ask that you please take a few moments to participate. Please call our Employee Hotline at 888-727-4785 and a member of our HR team can fill out the survey for you over the phone or stop by the HR office which is set up in the Walsingham Boardroom just off the main lobby.
Donations of clothing and shoes have been coming in to Human Resources and they are establishing a closet for employees who have lost their belongings to find essential items they need.
As we move toward our recovery of hospital services, we are also continuing to keep our employees and your own recovery in mind. We will continue to post updates for you as we make progress and as we come up with new solutions for the challenges we all face in this “new normal”.
