Regular visits to your facility

We often have multiple patients at each residential location, so we regularly visit your facility to follow-up on your patients’ oxygen therapy, supply oxygen equipment and accessories and provide support to your team when needed.

At the beginning of our collaboration we create a team specially dedicated to your facility - so you are always working with the same therapists and drivers. We notify you whenever one of them visits the facility.
