Joe Parisi urges telecommuting as ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to combat climate change

UW Health, the county’s largest private employer, says it has encouraged those who can to work remotely throughout the pandemic and will continue to support telecommuting into the future. “At UW Health, remote work is not confined strictly to non-clinical roles,” said spokeswoman Emily Kumlien. “As telehealth and video visits become a major component of UW Health’s patient care, many providers are now able to perform much of their work outside of a hospital or clinic setting as well.”
