Handle facilities requests online in MARS.
Lightbulb’s out. Nurse call button isn’t working. Patient’s TV is on the blink. AC’s running warm. You need new office signage.
No need to call. A new streamlined process coming this year will let you report it online. You’ll also be able to track progress of your requests in the new system.
But still call for emergencies. Water leak, power outage, other things that really can’t wait. Pick up the phone for these service requests.
