Temporary Staff Accommodation
Starting tomorrow, Providence staff, medical staff and contract services such as housekeeping who are working in active COVID patient care will be able to access temporary staff accommodation:
- Overnight accommodation during your shift week.
- Longer accommodation while you are in active COVID patient care.
Those who do not provide patient care but are assigned to a key COVID response role, and may not have time to safely commute to and from work every day, may also access accommodation.
Program details including request forms and process will be communicated to staff tomorrow.
We have also heard from many of you not working in active COVID patient care or support, but who have concerns, and we are working to secure significant discounts at partner hotels and apartments for Providence staff – an update on hotel discounts will also be communicated tomorrow.
All enquiries related to Temporary Staff Accommodation can be directed to PHC_CVD_TEMPSTAFFACCOMS@providencehealth.bc.ca.
