Medical Waste Disposal Des Moines, IA

Des Moines, Iowa is a thriving city with several major corporations choosing to locate their headquarters there, especially in the insurance industry. There is also a large and robust healthcare community in Des Moines, with Unity Point Health and Mercy Medical Center employing thousands of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals.

Dozens of medical support industries are located in Des Moines, such as pharmacies, medical supply companies, and medical waste disposal firms, including MedPro Waste Disposal.

MedPro operates in 44 states, including Iowa, where we partner with local healthcare communities to offer reliable service and low prices with a firm commitment to safety and regulatory compliance.

In Iowa the Department of Natural Resources regulates all hazardous waste, and information from the DNR may be found at their website.

Medical waste is also called biomedical waste and biohazardous waste – it may include discarded biologic product such as blood or tissue removed from operating rooms, morgues, laboratories or other medical facilities. The term may also be applied to bedding, bandages, syringes, and similar materials that have been used in treating patients and to animal carcasses or body parts used in research. Medical waste is regulated at the federal, state and local levels.

The healthcare community in Des Moines, and in every city across the U.S. has experienced changes in the past ten years which are more radical than possible the past 100 years due to changes in government regulations and insurance company restrictions. These changes have resulted in much tighter budgets for hospitals and medical practices to deal with, and this is resulting in everyone to streamline operations and cut costs.

Across Iowa MedPro has asked hospital administrators doctors, and nurses what we can do to make their jobs easier, and we have responded with a series of benefits and services we call the MedPro Advantage:

Cost Controls: MedPro uses our vast resources to coordinate collection and transportation operations to cut labor and fuel costs while maintaining safe and compliant service. We pass these savings on to our customers, building trust and long-term relationships.

MedPro’s service plans are “right-sized” which means they fit our customer’s needs. We won’t schedule 5 pick-ups per month if only four are necessary.

Training is another area where we have been asked to help doctors save time and money. We responded with the MedPro Online Safety Compliance Portal, a very valuable resource available to all our customers. This is a cloud-based platform where healthcare professionals can access and study required safety procedures, then gain certifications. Hazcom, blood-borne pathogen, and HIPPA training is included, as are tools to permit the creation of safety plans for fire-prevention, exposure control, and emergency preparedness. Our customers have thanked us for this amazing time-saving tool that also serves as a source for regulations from coast-to-coast. We even included a tool for ICD9 to ICD10 conversions for those going through that transition.

Certain training is required by law, MedPro makes it easy.

Customer Service at MedPro is so important we created a new position called the Customer Service Advocate. This is a person who receives a limited number of customer accounts and services them as the primary point-of-contact for all issues and questions. When a MedPro customer in Des Moines calls our offices, they ask for their advocate by name, no pushing buttons and talking to a robot. Accurate answers and prompt resolutions are promised to all customers.

Low Risk – MedPro carries extensive insurance in every state including Iowa. The low-stress benefit of high-quality insurance may cost more, but MedPro believes it is worth every penny.

Simplified Invoicing – MedPro listened to our customers in Des Moines and across the country when they asked for easy billing and price plans. We responded with a one-flat-fee basis for all our customers and no-surprise invoices. No extra fees or charges.

Des Moines is growing and so is MedPro. We are growing so fast because the medical community loves our service, and they love our prices. The best way to get to know us is to call our sales team at 888-641-6131 and ask for a price quote. It’s likely we will be able to offer plan and price that makes sense and saves money.

Des Moines Little-Known Facts

There is some dispute as the true origin of the name "Des Moines" but most historians believe that it is French for "River of the Moingonas". It has also been suggested that the name is derived from the Trappist monks who were early settlers there (Moines de la Trappe), and another possible theory is that it is an Indian word for "river mounds" referring to ancient burial sites.
