Prior to Governor Jay Inslee’s announcement, on April 29, that he would extend his stay-at-home order, Sound already announced to team members that we would be extending our Sound Urgent Care model to at least May 18, ensuring existing and new clients can continue to receive the care they need during these uncertain times. Clients who need to reach us can call at (206) 302-2300.
Sound puts people first and we know that in addition to caring for our clients, we must also provide safety, stability, normalcy and hope for our team members.
Sound also extended team member support to May 16, which provides Paid Administrative Leave for team members who must work from home to care for their children or loved ones; Paid Sick Leave for those who no longer have sick leave; and our Premium Pay Rates for team members who work extra hours or at onsite locations.
“Each of you, in your own unique way and role, are making a positive impact on our clients and community – you are saving lives,” said Patrick Evans, Sound’s President & Chief Executive Officer, in an email to all team members. “The entire management team and I truly appreciate you.“
While we are continuing to follow the guidance from the Governor’s office around his stay-at-home order, Sound’s leadership teams are also continuing the organization’s re-entry planning that ensures that when we do resume normal clinic hours, we are moving forward with our team member and client safety and security in mind.
