SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Amendola Communications, an award-winning healthcare marketing and public relations agency, has announced it has been chosen as the agency of record by Infusion Express, a patient-focused alternative to hospital infusion centers. Infusion Express brings a new paradigm to the infusion market, offering individuals with chronic conditions the option to enjoy high-quality, personalized care in a convenient, comfortable, private setting with flexible hours—at a price that is much lower than hospital-based infusion services.
"We chose Amendola to tell our story because of both its deep healthcare experience and its national reach," said Don Peterson, CEO, Infusion Express. "As we expand, we want to make sure patients and providers are aware of this new option for high-quality infusions. We know Amendola is best positioned to get our message out."
Infusion Express makes it easier for patients to get the infusion treatments they need to successfully manage conditions including multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, allergic asthma, plaque psoriasis, lupus, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, Lyme disease and blood disorders.
The company launched with locations in the Kansas City area, and has recently expanded to include treatment centers in the San Francisco Bay Area, Philadelphia and Chicago metro areas. Infusion Express is an in-network provider for most health plans.
"Infusion Express is providing a unique service for an important and growing healthcare demographic—people living with chronic conditions," said Amendola CEO, Jodi Amendola. "We are thrilled to work with Infusion Express to educate providers and patients about the company's superior level of service and convenience."
Until now, patients who need regular infusion treatments had just two choices, a hospital or a physician's office. Since infusion treatment can take several hours, this poses a significant disruption to their lives—often compounded by administrative hassles and parking expenses. By contrast, Infusion Express provides private rooms with comfortable chairs for patients and their guests. Snacks and healthy hydration, flat screen TVs and high-speed Wi-Fi are all features of Infusion Express treatment centers. Infusion Express offers appointments six days a week, and offers evening time slots.
