With an expanded healthcare hospitality service portfolio
SHAWNEE, Kan., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- AVP Inc., a leader in hospitality services for the healthcare industry, will change its name to Avascend effective December 1, 2007. An integral part of the new brand is the expanded service portfolio and the same unfaltering commitment to patient, guest and employee satisfaction.
Avascend currently provides the following core healthcare hospitality services: Valet Parking, Patient Bellstaff, Wheelchair Escort, Concierge, Room Service, Internal Patient Transportation, Parking Management and Shuttle Transportation. New services include Retail Development, Environmental Services (EVS) and expanded Parking Management and Development.
For more than 20 years, AVP/Avascend has been a leader in logistical solutions and superior guest services. Our passion for serving others, our hospitality experience, and our strong operational infrastructure provide the foundation for serving over 120 hospitals from Alaska to Florida through our more than 1,100 employees.
"Avascend is the first and best Healthcare Hospitality company in the country. Unlike others who specialize in the back-of-house functions like food service or environmental services and unlike other companies who started in the parking business, Avascend has always believed that parking and logistics are ultimately about people. Avascend is a front-of-house company -- focused on not just patient flow and logistics, but the total patient, guest, employee, and physician experience," says Dave Geenens, President/CEO of Avascend.
Avascend's healthcare hospitality services are designed to support patients and visitors during a time when assistance is most valuable, allowing them to focus on their health and the health and experience of their loved ones. Avascend specializes in creating a lasting, positive impression for the customers and employees of healthcare facilities. The result is a measurable increase in patient flow, improved patient satisfaction, and better retention of healthcare professionals.
