West Orange, New Jersey - Scimedico, LLC has been engaged by the PathGroup to provide Preventive Maintenance in their Pathology and Histology Lab based in the Lewis Gale Medical Center. Scimedico will address both preventive maintenance and repair under the contract.
The Scimedico engagement includes preventive maintenance as well as pre defined service and repair between Preventive Maintenance visits. "We now offer our customers three tiers of service that address the different service levels our customers require," explained Miguel Bermeo, Scimedico's Chief Executive.
Scimedico's new tiers of service provide customers with the appropriate level of service based on their preventive maintenance and ongoing service needs. The service offerings include:
Preventive Maintenance with Post PM Repairs quoted separately
Preventive Maintenance with pre-paid Post PM Repairs contracted at the discount
Preventive Maintenance with pre-paid Post PM Repairs contracted at the discount as well as a budget for replacement parts
"This is about providing our customers with the right scope for their preventive maintenance needs. We have found that once the PM is complete, it is not always easy or convenient for our customers to go back and request additional purchase orders for repairs. Our new service levels allow us to properly budget our services," offered Kelly Lord, Account Manager from Scimedico.
The objective of Scimedico's Preventive Maintenance process is to provide a safe working environment, avoid equipment down time, and maintain a hygienic work place. The initial step involves a full inspection, testing, and documentation of the status of each feature and function on the equipment being "PM'd." The Scimedico Decontamination Process applies an eight-step workflow to the equipment which concludes with microbial testing. Scimedico then re-tests all features on the equipment. The final step is air flow testing to assure the ventilation on the equipment is functioning properly.
Scimedico is a full service laboratory services and solutions firm, providing Planning and Design, Equipment and Installation, and Service and Preventive Maintenance solutions in the Healthcare, Education, and Government Sectors. Scimedico, LLC's preventive maintenance solutions set and related lab maintenance and support offerings are now offered on a national basis within the United States.
