We can deliver care to the patient in their home.”

The partnership adds another access point to the clinic and their health care team. Patients can get care for all sorts of aliments including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, complications and viral illnesses.

The team is E.R. trained and will arrive with lab equipment and necessary tools for on-site care.
