DAYTON, Ohio, Oct. 30, 2018
— Midmark Corp., a leading provider of medical, dental and veterinary equipment solutions, today announced a partnership with Dayton Children’s Hospital to offer company teammates a unique coverage program for their children. The program, which started Oct. 1, 2018, offers children of Midmark Teammates access to pediatric ENT surgeries such as ear tubes, tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, and tonsillectomy with adenoidectomy.
“As a leader in the healthcare industry, our commitment to improve the point of care experience for our customers starts with our Midmark Teammates. They are at the heart of everything we do, so it’s important they are taken care of when it comes to the quality of care they and their families receive,” said Shelly Gasson, human resources shared services director, Midmark. “We are grateful for the innovation Dayton Children’s Hospital has shown in presenting us a program that places the highest priority on the needs of our teammates and their families. We are also thankful to our insurance partners, Anthem Insurance, and USI Insurance Services for helping make the program a reality.”
Midmark partnered with Dayton Children’s Hospital to set up the pediatric bundled services program, the first-of-its-kind for both organizations. Midmark families who select the bundle receive expert specialty pediatric care for their child, know the price of their selected surgery and associated care in advance, only get one bill for all those services and have a guide in advance of what to expect along the care path. The program also provides teammates with a nurse navigator to guide them through the process. The nurse provides hands-on assistance to ensure the highest quality care and best patient experience when they visit Dayton Children’s facilities for the inpatient and outpatient procedures.
“Parents facing surgery for their child have enough to worry about,” says Shelly Speiser, payment innovation officer. “This bundle program allows them to focus on their child, while we take care of the rest. Plus parents can feel confident they are getting care from experts specially trained for the unique needs of children.”
For Midmark Teammates, dependent upon the insurance plan chosen, Midmark will waive the deductible or make a deposit into their HSA savings plan at the beginning of the following plan year.
