– Tony Sullivan, Project Executive – Healthcare
This week we are honoring our healthcare heroes during National Hospital Week. On behalf of all us at Findorff, I would like to express sincere gratitude to those healthcare workers who go above and beyond to care for our communities during such a challenging time. Our appreciation for these workers extends far beyond just this week of recognition. As Findorff’s healthcare division leader, I see every day how our business works together with the frontline hospital staff toward a common goal of providing the best patient care possible.
To support these healthcare workers, Findorff is working on several projects specifically designed for keeping staff safe during this pandemic. We are working on setting up a remote testing facility for the staff of a local healthcare site as well as adjustments to multiple clinics to make the work environment safer for the essential workers.
Most of our work with healthcare is in occupied settings where patient care is still going on. In the past two years over 85% of our healthcare projects have been completed in these occupied spaces. Because of these conditions, Findorff must coordinate closely with frontline staff (i.e. doctors, nurses, administrators etc.) to ensure that we are allowing them the space to continue providing excellent patient care while we work on improving their facilities. We are proud to work alongside such dedicated professionals.
Healthcare is not only a part of my professional life but also a part of my personal life as my mother, sister, and wife are all nurses. I feel honored to work in an industry that is dedicated to making improvements in medical facilities to ensure healthcare workers can do their jobs successfully.
Thank you to the wide range of healthcare workers; your hard work and dedication to public health and safety is what makes you heroes now more than ever.
