Vista Community Clinic has chosen San Diego-based TOOTRiS to provide real-time child care services for its employees.
TOOTRiS’ on-demand solution offers clinic employees access to child care providers and after-school programs in their area. Specifically, its platform delivers real-time access to thousands of diverse programs, enabling parents to find, communicate with, enroll in and pay for programs, all in a contactless manner.
TOOTRiS is a first-of-its-kind software as a service (SaaS) platform that allows parents to view a real-time inventory of available child care and after-school program slots — all accessible online via a desktop or mobile device.“Diversifying our employee wellness program by providing new family-focused offerings like child care assistance aligns well with our organization’s culture and values,” said Fernando Sañudo, CEO of Vista Community Clinic. “Locating child care has been a stressful, time-consuming burden for many of our working parents. We are excited to partner with TOOTRiS to provide our employees with relief, while helping us better fulfill our mission of providing access to premier health services and education for those in our community who need it most.”
Last year, more than half of working parents had work interruptions due to lack of child care support or availability, according to a Move.org survey.
“Vista Community Clinic’s new child care assistance program highlights its deep commitment to its workforce and supporting true work/life balance,” said TOOTRiS CEO Alessandra Lezama. “By expanding their benefits programs to include child care solutions, Vista Community Clinic continues to lead as an innovator in employee development and wellness, and we are happy to add their organization to the growing list of employers who now offer TOOTRiS to their staff.
“With our turnkey child care platform, we empower more parents to return and remain in the workforce with complete peace of mind,” Lezama said. “Organizations that offer child care as a benefit create a positive environment where employees feel more supported, valued and encouraged to continue advancing their careers.”
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
In February, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce presented TOOTRiS with its Moving San Diego Forward Award recognizing the company’s efforts supporting employers with child care solutions.
Vista Community Clinic’s community health centers treat more than 69,000 patients every year.
