5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Veteran county employees
The Fauquier Joint Emergency Communications Center 9-1-1 calls averaged more than 2,000 a month last year.
Total years of work logged by 96 county government workers honored Thursday during the annual service awards ceremony at the Warrenton Community Center on West Shirley Avenue.
Three employees marked 35 years on the job:
• Sheriff’s Office Capt. Mike “Moose” Miller.
• General Services Fleet Manager Raymond Mills.
Fauquier government and school system employees used the county’s wellness center from last April, when it opened at 98 Alexandria Pike in Warrenton, through November.
In 2017, the county board of supervisors hired Vermont-based
Marathon Health LLC
to establish a clinic to serve employees who receive health insurance through the county.
Established through Marathon, the clinic helps reduce and control health care insurance costs by:
• Addressing “low-intensity” medical problems for which employees often seek treatment at emergency rooms or urgent care centers — typically at higher costs.
• Eliminating unnecessary tests and procedures.
• Providing preventive care and encouraging good lifestyle habits.
• Detecting undiagnosed conditions and treating them before they get serious.
• Providing pre-employment and annual physicals.
• Providing prescriptions, flu shots and various routine tests and office procedures.
