Health care workers get four-wheel drive vehicles

To keep employees and patients safe and stay competitive in the health care industry, Centura Health at Home, as of April 21, is providing all 65 full-time field staff members with four-wheel-drive vehicles. The Colorado Springs office has 48 field staff, of which 27 full timers are getting vehicles.

"We believe we are the only agency in the state to provide four-wheel-drive vehicles for its entire staff," said spokeswoman Lisa Cutter.

At a launch party April 21, the vehicles were blessed before the keys were turned over to employees. The vehicles will ensure patients receive the care they need in severe weather, Cutter said, and will be a tool in attracting and retaining employees.
