PHOENIX — Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are being given a life-line to help keep their families safe from coronavirus.

Caliber, a real estate development and investment firm which owns five Phoenix-area hospitality properties, is allowing medical professionals a free place to sleep.

Company representatives say Caliber wishes to allow those on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak a welcomed reprieve from the stressful hours treating patients. This will give them a space to rest away from home in order to keep their loved ones safe from the virus.

Caliber CEO Chris Loeffler said in a statement, “Considering that, we have excess capacity to house individuals affected by the current health situation, and providing complimentary nights is a way that our company can give back to those working hard for the rest of us.”

The company requests that "Operation Sleep Safe" participants observe all the safety protocols they would at home or at the hospital to protect staff and other guests, including frequent temperature checks, washing hands, observing social distancing and other measures.

The offer includes a minimum of five free rooms per property per night from April 1 through May 31 to front-line employees of local hospital networks and healthcare providers, including Banner Health, Mayo Clinic, Dignity Health, HonorHealth and Valleywise Health, among others.

Each Valley hospital's human resources departments have been issued a booking number, which can be used by their respective front-line employees when placing a reservation for the complimentary stay.

A valid employee ID from one of the listed hospitals is required at check-in along with a current photo ID, such as a driver’s license. A valid form of payment is required at check-in to cover any incidental expenses.

Hotels include:
Crowne Plaza Phoenix Airport, 4300 E. Washington St., Phoenix
Hampton Inn and Suites Scottsdale Riverwalk, 9550 E Talking Stick Way, Scottsdale
Holiday Inn Chandler, 1200 W. Ocotillo Road, Chandler
Hilton Phoenix Airport, 2435 S. 47th St., Phoenix
Holiday Inn Phoenix Airport North, 1515 N. 44th St., Phoenix
