Wilmington is a beautiful port city located in southeastern North Carolina, with a population of 112,067. The city was settled by European Americans along the Cape Fear River, and its Riverwalk was named “Best American Riverfront” by USA Today in 2014. Keeping all the residents healthy of this city by the sea is the responsibility of New Hanover Medical Center, which offers award-winning care to Wilmington and the surrounding area. MedPro Disposal has deep ties to Wilmington, as the New Hanover Health Network is the largest employer in the area with nearly 6,000 employees. All of these facilities are producers of medical waste, which is where MedPro Disposal takes over. Caring for that many people creates a lot of medical waste, which is why MedPro Disposal is proud to service the Wilmington area, making sure that all the residents and environment are kept in ultimate health. Medical waste cannot be disposed of in the normal trash stream, as it often contains pathogens and viruses that are easily transmissible if a person were to come in contact with it. Some examples of medical waste include used sharps, IV bags, soaked gauze bandages, syringes, and even human tissue. Blood-borne pathogens are present on all of these items, which means they must be disposed of in a medical waste container immediately after use, to prevent the contamination of sterile environments. In 2011, the CDC estimates that 17 million cases occurred in hospitals, and MedPro Disposal is here to help reduce that number and keep the residents of Wilmington safe. Your practice should not be wasting hard-earned money on a simple, yet required service, and that motto has made MedPro Disposal extremely successful over the past few years. Our Wilmington, NC customers consistently see savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous waste haulers, and we never raise our rates without reason or notice. The price you’re quoted is the price you pay, no hidden fuel or environmental charges! Along with regulated medical waste disposal, MedPro Disposal also offers a pharmaceutical mail-back program for the Wilmington area, as well as OSHA compliance training. Our pharmaceutical program is a mail-back system where MedPro Disposal will send your facility a 2.5-gallon bucket to fill with unused and old medications, as the need arises. When the bucket reaches capacity, simply attach the included pre-paid label and the bucket will be shipped from Wilmington to our closest disposal facility. Then, MedPro Disposal will send your facility a brand new bucket to begin filling up again. Our OSHA compliance portal is even simpler to use! Gone are the days of hiring an outside consultant to come in and waste valuable work hours training an entire workforce. The online portal allows for an administrator to assign duty-specific training to individual employees, or even assign group training. Along with that, the portal keeps all employees’ certificates of completion in one tab, making it extremely easy to pull up in the event that your practice is ever audited by OSHA for compliance. It is the most robust, cost-effective method of training an entire facility without wasting working time. Health care costs are rising in Wilmington, along with the rest of the United States for that matter, which means any area where savings can be made is crucial to the bottom line of a practice or healthcare facility. These savings allow money to be reinvested into the facility, improving overall care for the patients. MedPro Disposal is the company that can save you that money and take away the worries of being OSHA compliant. Call us today to see how much money you can save!
Current day Wilmington was previously inhabited by various indigenous cultures, and many tribes belonging to the Algonquian languages family. During World War II, the North Carolina Shipbuilding Company was headquartered in Wilmington and produced 243 ships during the five years the company was in business. This was in response to the US government’s emergency shipbuilding program. In 2003, the city was designated as a Coast Guard City, and is now homeport for many ships in the US Coast Guard fleet, responsible for patrolling the 200-mile economic zone around the United States’ shores.
Wilmington's commercial importance as a major port afforded it a critical role in opposition to the British in the years leading up to the Revolution. Additionally, the city was home to outspoken political leaders who influenced and led the resistance movement in North Carolina. The foremost of these was Wilmington resident Cornelius Harnett, who served in the General Assembly at the time, where he rallied opposition to the Sugar Act in 1764. When the British Parliament passed the Stamp Act the following year, designed to raise revenue for the Crown with a kind of tax, Wilmington was the site of an elaborate demonstration against it.
