Orlando, FL, August 28, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Orlando Executive Health, an exclusive primary care practice in Orlando, signed its Medical Director, Patrick T. Hennessey, MD, MPH, FACP as the contract physician for the staff, flight crew and passengers of the European airline Lufthansa Airlines.
This arrangement, finalized in April 2008, selected Dr. Hennessey and his other affiliate, EastCoast Medical Network, to provide pilots, other aircrew and passengers with check-ups and medical care to ensure that they meet Lufthansa Airline’s medical standards for flight. Lufthansa’s industry-leading passenger and crew flight fitness standards require that it have a specialized contract physician to assist its passengers and staff in each market that it serves, in the US and abroad. Lufthansa’s relationship with Dr. Patrick Hennessey will further support their recent expansion providing direct flights to the Orlando (MCO) market.
Orlando Executive Health’s state-of-the-art facility ensures same-day appointments for Lufthansa’s crew and passengers, and gets test results in hours, not days. This gives Lufthansa Airlines' staff and crew access to the most innovative, and in this case, most convenient and personalized expert health care available.
Lufthansa Airlines is currently the largest airline in Europe and the fifth largest airline in the world, now with six flights a week and three hundred and twelve flights a year through Orlando.
Orlando Executive Health is a new type of primary care practice
where the focus is on the patient. Orlando Executive Health was conceived, designed and built around the health care needs of busy people who value their time and health, but are tired of not being able to get timely appointments and sitting endlessly in waiting rooms.
Orlando Executive Health, as a concierge medicine private medical practice, provides special benefits to its members, including more time with their personal physician, home and office visits when medically necessary and same-day, next-day, and after-hours care. Many member privileges extended to client’s personal and business out-of-town guests while they are visiting, and specialized corporate programs (such as this one with Lufthansa) are also available.
Dr. Patrick T. Hennessey will be attending the Lufthansa Contract Physicians Congress October 9th -12th in Wiesbaden, Germany.
