PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xfinity Communities today announced it is partnering with Aimco, a real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered in Denver and one of the largest multifamily owners and operators in the country, to donate apartments outfitted with its TV and high-speed internet service to medical workers at four nearby Colorado hospitals for a minimum of 60 days. The donation of these apartment units aims to give those risking the most in the fight against the coronavirus a temporary home and the modern comforts they deserve while they keep their families and communities safe.
“When Aimco approached us, we quickly said ‘yes’ to donating video and Internet services to the apartments they planned to use to help healthcare workers in Colorado.,” said David Salazar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Comcast Mountain West Region. “There is nothing more important to us than the safety and wellbeing of our communities and those who are working on the frontlines to keep us safe. By partnering with Aimco, we are providing these medical staffers with the comforts of modern, reliable entertainment and technology that are critical to keeping them connected with their families and teammates.”
Aimco is donating Xfinity Communities-outfitted apartment homes at two complexes: 21 Fitzsimons in Denver will house personnel from Medical Center of Aurora and Children’s Hospital Colorado, while Park Mosaic in Boulder will serve staff from Boulder Community Health and University of Colorado Health.
“When my wife Betsy told me there were hospital workers who chose not to go home between shifts for fear of infecting their families, I knew we had to help,” said Terry Considine, Chairman and CEO of Aimco. “Aimco has nearby apartment homes that provide the comforts of being home without risk to families. We offered them to the hospitals and cheered when Xfinity Communities agreed to be our technology partner. After they have done so much for others, it seems right that Aimco and Xfinity care for them. Being a good neighbor is an Aimco value. We are grateful to Xfinity for sharing our commitment and helping us to help others.”
Xfinity Communities works closely with Aimco communities across the country to provide technology-based amenities including high-performance internet, smart community solutions and entertainment options where residents can opt to stream their TV and music content over WiFi connections, apps like Xfinity Stream or through the Xfinity X1 interactive entertainment service.
