Work Status for Employees
As of Tuesday, January 17, 2017 9:29 AM PST
Director statement regarding reporting for duty:
As of Jan. 17, 2017, The Dalles CBOC is closed for the remainder of the day due to bad weather & road conditions in the area. All other VAPORHCS clinics and services are currently operating during normal hours. There is a potential for increased icy road conditions throughout the Portland area today/tomorrow; we will update this web site if the operational status changes for VAPORHCS.
Updates will be communicated accordingly here, on the VAPORHCS Facebook page, and on the Alert Line at 503-721-1458.
Due to the vital nature of hospital service, it is imperative that VHAPORHCS be able to continue to offer medical care in spite of severe weather or other conditions. As such, when these conditions occur, employees are asked to make a reasonable effort to report for their scheduled tour of duty every day.
Please keep your supervisor informed of your status or if you have any questions/issues.
