)-- MedSpeed LLC, the Midwest’s leading provider of integrated transportation services to the healthcare industry, announced today that it has formed a transportation partnership with Alexian Brothers Hospital Network. Serving the healthcare needs of the Chicago area for nearly 150 years, the Alexian Brothers Hospital Network is comprised of four hospitals which serve the two million residents of Chicago's growing Northwest suburbs.
"Our courier operations were decentralized and we recognized that there were efficiencies to be gained from centralizing this operation throughout the Alexian Brothers Network. Capital Equipment Services worked with the MedSpeed team in order to understand what a centralized courier services program could bring to Alexian Brothers in terms of improved quality and service, while at the same time reducing our costs. We are very pleased with the results," said Patrick Trim, Assistant Vice President, Capital Equipment Services.
MedSpeed began working with Alexian Brothers in October 2009 and grew its existing hub operations in Elmhurst, IL to support the health system. With a 100% employee-based workforce, company owned fleet and sophisticated scanning and tracking software, the MedSpeed operation has integrated and streamlined business processes for the movement of specimens, pharmaceuticals, radiology films, supplies, mail and medical records.
