Forrest General unveil new vehicles for employees

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Employees were floored as Forrest General Home Care and Hospice rolled out more than 90 brand new leased vehicles for employees on Tuesday.

Reps said it's more cost effective than asking employees to turn in mileage reports, and that it lowers operating costs.

The new 2014 Nissan Sentra SV's come from Petro Nissan in Hattiesburg. Melita miller said it's a win-win situation.

"Our staff are very excited, we have 94 clinical staff that are receiving a car. They were all excited getting into their cars, getting those keys. I just can't explain how exciting, what an exciting day it is for our organization," said Miller.

When employees go to the gas pump, they will refer to their odometer reading and fuel their cars with a fuelman card.

Additional vehicles will be unveiled at the remaining seven branch offices in Columbia, Tylertown, Prentiss, Lumberton, Picayune, Richton and Laurel.
