Unvaccinated Associates may be excluded from working at a Customer site, require routine testing with an approved exemption (if accepted by the Customer) or have limited Customer access impacting their ability to remain employed.

This position is a Customer-facing role that falls under a state or CMS mandate.

•    Some of our Customers choose to utilize our in house repair lab service, where we are set up full time inside their hospital, where they have access to our repair team whenever they need, which means efficiency for our Customers.
