Solving the commute is essential

Healthcare workers need a safe and reliable commute
With deep cuts to mass transit leading to doubled commute times and higher exposure risks, many healthcare workers are struggling with how to get to work every day.
Physical safety needs
70% of Americans are avoiding high-capacity transportation modes due to safety concerns, yet a third of healthcare workers rely on it to get to work every day since they don’t own a vehicle 1.
Emotional safety needs
Fears of COVID-19 transmission have led to a pattern of prejudice against healthcare workers: those taking public transit have been harassed by other riders out of fear 2.
Transit less reliable
Mass transit budget cuts have led to reduced routes and doubled commute times for many healthcare workers, making the commute less reliable and more stressful than ever 3.
Historic turnover and well-being concerns mounting
The pandemic is causing record-high turnover amongst nurses and physicians, and negatively impacting emotional and financial well-being.
Burnout and PTSD were common among healthcare workers before COVID-19, but new studies show that 71% of frontline staff have psychological distress, 63% are suffering from burnout, and 50% report symptoms of depression all due to the pandemic 4 5.
The financial uncertainty from COVID-19 is negatively impacting more than half of American households. At the same time, costs continue to mount even more for frontline healthcare workers, especially for child care and housing, spurring a crisis, and adding further to worker stress 6.
Amid the largest nursing shortage in decades, 3 of 5 nurses say they’re leaving the profession due to COVID-19, and a third of physicians plan to do the same. These turnover costs amount to nearly $5 million on average per year for hospitals 7 8.
Parking problems and budget shortfalls
COVID-19 is causing more healthcare workers to drive alone, causing overflowing parking lots and stress that strains the employee experience and your budget.
More workers driving alone to your hospital leads to a ripple effect: less available parking and higher parking demand, overflowing parking lots, stressed workers, late workers, and displaced and dissatisfied hospital patients and visitors.
A costly fix
Adding and maintaining new parking spots can range from $5,000 - $10,000 a year, with new structured parking spaces costing upwards of $50,000 each. To maintain the average parking space costs over $400 per year, per space 9 10.
Reducing the need for new parking investment means re-focusing spending on programs that help your people but don’t compromise patient care. With hospitals facing budget shortfalls, you need a scalable and flexible solution that drives impact and shows return on investment.
The stakes for hospitals are high
Hospitals know that in the wake of COVID-19, the status quo must go to keep operations moving forward:
Ensuring staff continuity
To minimize commute and stress-related turnover, you need to provide every worker with a safe, reliable, and convenient commute.
Investing where it counts
Extreme budget cuts means more focused spending on programs that has a direct impact on your people and promotes well-being.
Prioritizing patient care
Keep physicians, nurses, and support staff engaged and focused on patient care, not how unsafe, costly, or stressful their commute is.
