OrthoNebraska recognizes the burdens COVID-19 may place on our team members, and we encourage you to continue to have conversations with your managers regarding your personal situation and any need for support or assistance. One area that we have been closely monitoring is the need for childcare within our teams. In addition to doing our best to accommodate flexible schedules, OrthoNebraska has reached out to several providers to explore options for our team members and their families. Below are two of these options:
