Ensuring that SBCH maximizes usage of its parking facilities for both patients and employees during construction is critical to keeping the facility running to our high standards.
Beverly, MA (PRWEB) February 23, 2006
Curbside Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with California-based Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital (SBCH). Since February 8th, Curbside has been facilitating all aspects of the hospitals’ courtesy valet service at its Main/ER entrances and employee parking program.
“Curbside is honored to be selected by a hospital which understands that patient care truly starts at the ‘curb,’” said John Udelson, President and CEO of Curbside Inc. “Parking cars is just a portion of our service. Our staff’s primary goal is to provide a caring and responsive front door environment that will set SBCH apart from other facilities.”
“We selected Curbside for its experience in working with leading healthcare facilities. Curbside’s valet service helps us continue our commitment to providing the highest level of care our patients expect,” said Afshin Fatholahi, Administrative Director of Support Services at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. “Ensuring that SBCH maximizes usage of its parking facilities for both patients and employees during construction is critical to keeping the facility running to our high standards.”
In California, hospitals such as SBCH are undergoing extensive reconstruction projects related to the fulfillment of state seismic requirements outlined in Senate Bill 1953. These construction projects often put a further strain on hospitals’ already limited parking facilities. Curbside’s valet, concierge, shuttle, and garage management solutions offer a cost-efficient way to lessen the impact of seismic safety compliance while increasing overall patient, visitor and employee satisfaction and safety.
