|Practice Type||Zip Code||Projected Annual Savings|
Covington is part of the Metropolitan New Orleans area and is served by MedPro Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal Covington, LA.
Covington is near enough to New Orleans to access their healthcare resources, yet is distant enough to retain its small city characteristics. Lakeview Regional Medical Center and St. Tammany Parish Hospital anchor the healthcare community in Covington, aided by hundreds of dedicated physicians, nurses, and other dedicated medical professionals.
Hospitals and other medical facilities in Louisiana and across the U.S. share a common by-product: medical waste. Also called biomedical waste of biohazardous waste, these materials and fluids are potentially dangerous, even deadly. The Department of Environmental Quality oversees medical waste collection, transportation, and disposal – details are at their website.

MedPro Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal Covington, LA operates in 44 states including Louisiana and we are growing rapidly. Part of the reason for our success is our commitment to listen to the healthcare workers on the front line as well medical administrators and then develop solution-based responses. We call our services and benefits the MedPro Advantage:
Low Costs: With the medical industry in a state of dramatic change, MedPro listened to customers who resoundingly asked for streamlined operations, simple invoicing, and one-flat-fee pricing. We said ok and we implemented them all.
MedPro looked at operations across many regions including Iowa and restructured collections in the same geographic area for the same days whenever possible. This resulted in saved time, mileage and fuel and we passed these savings on to our customers.
Invoicing is easy with MedPro. One invoice with one-flat-fee and no surprises. Our website includes a portal for payments, or payment can be made the old-fashioned way with an envelope and a stamp.
Customer Service: Our customers told us they wanted access to a human contact for fast resolution to issues, and accurate answers to questions. MedPro Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal Covington, LA created the dedicated Consumer Customer Advocate, a person who handles those tasks and more for every customer. This person is introduced to every new customer and remains their point of contact throughout the business relationship.
Online Training and Compliance Resources: Doctors asked us for a seamless, comprehensive portal to complete their required training and certifications for staff members. MedPro created the Online Safety Compliance Portal, a very valuable resource where customers can study HIPPA, HazCom and other required modules quickly and receive certificates. Safety plans for Fire Prevention, Exposure Avoidance, and Emergency Preparedness can be designed and executed through the portal as can MSDS/SDS sheets. Medical practices going through the ICD9 to ICD10 conversion can access a conversion tool for codes.
