Health and Safety are our #1 priority
Here is what we are doing in response to COVID-19 (the coronavirus).
On behalf of Medwest Transportation we appreciate the trust our clients and people around us place in the hands of their non-emergency medical transportation needs when using our company. Their health and safety is our first priority. This is why we wanted to share an update on our actions related to the current situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus).
We are actively monitoring the situation and taking the precautionary steps as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Some of the actions we have taken include the following:
We have enhanced our vehicle sanitation proceedures based upon CDC guidance. These sanitation protocols are standard practice, but are also approved by the CDC for the COVID-19 coronavirus.
We will work with all customers to reschedule any non-critical trips.
We will coordinate with the local Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for transportation of anyone confirmed with the coronavirus infection.
We are prepared to initiate standard Disaster Recovery protocols as necessary, to proactively engage with dialysis clinics, chemotherapy providers, methadone clinics, and other providers of life-sustaining and critical services to accommodate any modified hours of operation or reduced staffing/treatment capacity.
Transparency is always important to us, but especially in times like these. We will work to keep everyone we serve informed as the situation evolves.
