Meeting the needs of moms and dads in scrubs

The City of Portland houses over five hospitals, 79 nursing homes, and innumerable independent clinics, totaling thousands of caregivers, nurses, physicians, and hospital administrators. WeVillage understands the struggle parents in health care face finding a reliable, safe, and stimulating day care that works with your busy schedule.

To meet the needs of moms and dads in scrubs, WeVillage will be expanding our hours to include times that you need flexible child care the most. "We want to focus on making our services widely available and even more affordable to the healthcare community," states Jessica Scott, WeVillage's marketing director. Beginning May 1st, WeVillage’s Pearl, Hillsboro, and Happy Valley locations will open at 6:30am and stay open late, perfect for day shift workers and doctors on call. You can worry less and focus more knowing your little ones are having an unforgettable day at Wevillage.

WeVillage owner and founder Karen Beninati says “We are thrilled about the change in hours, opening our doors to fit the needs of healthcare workers in the Portland community is a service we are proud to offer.”

No longer will grandma have to watch the little one for a few hours in the morning or in the afternoons after traditional day cares close, WeVillage is open on your way to work and on your way home.  Drop off and pick up is always quick and easy for members.

Did you know WeVillage offers hospitals in the Portland area discounts to it's staff? Kaiser and OHSU already work with WeVillage to ensure their staff have the highest quality care available for their children. Nurses, so far, are raving about the savings and the convenience.

WeVillage is currently working to expand our corporate reach to include some of the biggest health care employers in the Portland area. If we aren't a provider for your hospital or care center please contact WeVillage today for more information.
