PORTSMOUTH - Southern Ohio Medical Center increased its fleet of vehicles after purchasing 17 2013 Toyota Corollas from the Glockner Family of Dealerships. SOMC Home Care will use six of the cars, while the other 11 will benefit SOMC Hospice.
“We have a lot of staff that drive quite a bit in order to bring exceptional patient care directly into our patient’s homes,” said Craig Gilliland, director of Financial Services and Business Development.
“Some are driving more than 10,000 miles a year. That is the staff that will be assigned a company vehicle.”
The cars will not be assigned to individual employees, but rather will be tied to certain jobs, duties and the number of miles driven.
