The inside scoop: “Our clinical caregivers see patients every day of the week regardless of the weather conditions,” a team member shared. “When there are snow and ice storms in Colorado, our teams ban together to ensure that we see patients in order to provide the necessary treatments and care. The employees will partner up in vehicles in order to be safe, plus further divide up territories so that employees can drive the shortest distance possible to see the patients with important medical needs. This was the case the last two winters in particular in Colorado.”
