Medical Staff At OHI Takes Care Of Its Workers

  NEW JERSEY – Senior staff are donating paid time off to workers at Ocean Health Initiatives who are impacted by the coronavirus.

  Workers who are have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or if they have family with it, and need to be quarantined, are welcome to paid time off, senior staff reported. When an employee’s own paid time off is used up, rather than go without pay, the donated PTO will kick in to help staff members get through the crisis. The donated PTO is being donated from senior staff to those in need.

  Additionally, the company was running an internal food drive for staff that have been impacted by the crisis, scheduled to run from April 27 through May 1.

  Ocean Health Initiatives is a nonprofit, federally qualified health center with locations throughout Ocean and Monmouth counties. Some of their locations are still open throughout this pandemic: 686 Route 70, Lakehurst for OB/GYN appointments and 10 Stockton Dr., Toms River for Well Visits and the Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) in the Toms River parking lot for sick visits. OHI is currently offering telehealth services as well. If needed, call (732) 363-6655 for an appointment.

  Since a lot of families are not able to leave their homes during this pandemic, the OHI Lakewood Pharmacy and OHI Manchester Pharmacy remain open and have a delivery service. Any current OHI pharmacy patients may obtain new prescriptions, refills, and counseling about medications from these two sites. If you are unable to travel, call the pharmacy at 732-719-1500 for delivery options.
