Central Wisconsin (WAOW) -- Marshfield Clinic is turning to the public for help in finding child care help for employees.
With the cancellation of schools and the need for health care workers to help those in need, Marshfield Clinic is hoping the community can step up and help in child care.
"This process aims to serve as a way to connect those in need of child care with those in the community who are able to provide child care," the Marshfield Clinic says in a release. "If you or someone you know has the ability to watch the child of a local health care provider, please consider helping out so that those workers can continue to work and address the health care needs that we are likely to face in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead."
"We know that during this crisis our employees are going to be spending a lot of time at work and with the schools closed we knew that child care would be a big issue and so we wanted to get ahead of this," said Steven Kulick, Chief Experience Officer, Marshfield Clinic Health System.
The release says: To help out a local health care provider send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include some key information. Your information will then be posted on an internal board where a health care worker may be reaching out to you.
Please include information such as:
- City of residence
- Days and time of availability
- What age groups are you willing to provide care for (infants, toddlers, teens)
- Any special qualifications (e.g. CPR, formal training, etc.)
- Do you have transportation and how far are you willing to travel to provide child care
- Anything else you think may be relevant
