Clinic strives to assure patients are able to travel to and from the site and receive proper medication
Pompano Beach, FL – May 17, 2016 – Realizing that transportation is a real issue keeping some patients from receiving the quality care they need and deserve, United Dialysis Center has spared no expense in making it easier for locals to commute to its Pompano Beach location for treatment, and return home once complete. In addition, the new facility offers delivery and pharmacy services for patients, making it even more convenient to receive treatment for kidney disease.
“Our commitment to providing state-of-the-art technology does not end at our facilities, but extends to our transportation services as well,” says Facility Manager Betty Jean Verbal. “We continuously strive to provide our patients the best possible care, and that includes ensuring that they arrive to their appointments safely and on time, having a means to return home, as well as having the medication they need to continue their care while not at the clinic.”
United Dialysis transports all patients in 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cargo vans, one of the best in its class for comfort, luxury and safety. This diesel model is a Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) that produces up to 90% fewer emissions than equivalent gasoline-powered vehicles. Not only does the clinic care about the well-being of its patients, but it also shows regard for the environment.
United Dialysis’ sister company United Pharmacy owns two 2016 BWM I3s, which are easily identifiable by their branded “United Pharmacy” vehicle wraps. This multiple award-winning, environmentally-friendly model again demonstrates the clinic’s environmental sensitivities. The model is known for its electronic efficiency and (150 miles total range per charge), and an interior made from more than 25% renewable raw and recycled materials.
An on-site pharmacy adds to the convenience offered to kidney dialysis patients, filling prescriptions in minutes and also allowing clinic staff to deliver the medication to patients if necessary. Transportation and delivery services are provided for patients who live as far north as the city of Boynton Beach and as far south as the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
