Priority Invests in New Stryker Power Cots and Loading System
Priority Patient Transfer has always been at the forefront of providing comfort and top-rated non-urgent transportation and care to its clients. As one of the first in the region to invest in a fleet of modern, purpose-built vehicles containing quality systems and technology, we have always made it a Priority to invest in our fleet and staff, to bring the safest and most responsive service to our clients and support of the healthcare system.
We are continuing in this tradition of innovation by investing in new state-of-the art Power Cots that feature a powerful hydraulic system designed to raise and lower the stretcher, at the touch of a button. The addition of these Stryker Power-Pro XT cots to our fleet, in conjunction with the new Stryker Power-Lift loading platform will provide a safer, more comfortable patient experience and will significantly reduce strain and lifting requirements for our employees. In addition, this system will greatly enhance our Bariatric transfer capability, giving our Company the ability to safely load patients up to 700lbs with minimal requirements for manual lifting, with this system.
“The comfort and safety of our clients is our first Priority. These Power Cot and Power Lift systems means greater mobility, dignity and security”, says Debra Szirtes, President of PPTS. “These types of investments align with Priority’s track record of focusing on the client and their comfort. We have chosen to collaborate with a company like Stryker so we can ensure that Priority can continue to meet the evolving needs of patients in the Ottawa region. I am excited to see this new capability and increased capacity being added to our fleet in early November 2018.”
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will begin to introduce this innovative Power Cot and Power Load technology to our transfers, aboard our two newest fuel-efficient transfer vehicles in the fleet. Priority will continue to make these strategic investments over the course of the next year and we look forward to growing our company to meet the evolving needs of the healthcare system.
