PORTLAND, Ore., June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ZOOM+Care, the Portland-based retail and digital healthcare innovator, will provide employees at Puget Sound Energy, Washington state's largest utility, with a full suite of COVID-19 testing services. With a workforce of more than 3,100 employees and as a provider of an essential service, PSE wanted to offer testing to ensure employees keep each other and the communities they serve safe.
ZOOM+Care will screen PSE employees through virtual visits and recommend in-person sample collection at ZOOM+Care retail locations based on screening results. Asymptomatic employees in priority facilities will also be eligible for testing, if exposure is suspected.
"The safety of our employees and customers is our top priority," said Booga Gilbertson, PSE Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer. "Testing is key to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and we hope by partnering with a regional healthcare provider for this service, that we will safeguard our customers and bring our employees peace of mind."
