Hygieacare® Center to be opened later this year in Miami, FL
MIAMI , FL, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gastro Health and Hygieacare Inc. announced they established a strategic collaboration. The strategic collaboration agreement with Gastro Health follows the success of the Hygieacare Center in Ohio, with the Ohio GI practice that recently joined the Gastro Health platform.
“We have been following Hygieacare’s success both with HygiPrep and HygiRelief in Centers around the country,” said Gastro Health CEO Joseph Garcia. “Gastro Health and its physicians see the value and convenience that HygiPrep and HygiRelief bring to patients.”
In collaboration, Hygieacare will establish a Hygieacare® Center at 7500 SW 87th Avenue, Miami, Florida. The Center will utilize the Hygieacare® Systems, cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to provide HygiPrep™ – a less burdensome preparation for colonoscopy and HygiRelief® – for patients with chronic constipation, bloating, or impacted bowel.
HygiPrep is performed on the same day as the scheduled colonoscopy and replaces the traditional colonoscopy preparation. Patients who have experienced HygiPrep have reported that it is simple, comfortable, and convenient. Patients may forgo many of the elements that make traditional bowel prep inconvenient. HygiPrep effectively cleans the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water. Completion of the HygiPrep routine takes about an hour.
Over 15,000 patients have chosen HygiPrep to date with excellent outcomes, safety profile, and outstanding patient satisfaction.
Over 2,000 patients have been prescribed HygiRelief, which has been proven to be well-tolerated, safe, and effective in providing relief from constipation – many of them returning for relief every four weeks. Patient feedback has been outstanding.
“At Gastro Health, we are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and patient care and dedicated to providing patients with outstanding medical care and an exceptional healthcare experience,” added Dr. James Leavitt. “This is why we have established a strategic collaboration with Hygieacare. Our patients will be able to prepare comfortably for their colonoscopy at the Hygieacare® Center – without a sleepless night and without having to run to the bathroom repeatedly. Additionally, constipated patients can benefit from quick relief in a safe, private, and hygienic environment.”
“Our team is excited at the opportunity of strategic collaboration with Gastro Health and to continue to successfully expand our footprint. We share the passion to provide high-quality, compassionate care to patients,” said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of HyGIeaCare, Inc. “We look forward to providing HygiPrep and HygiRelief to Gastro Health referred patients at the Hygieacare Center in Miami, which is planned to open towards the end of this year.”
