iRemedy CEO Confirms that Company's Business Operations Spared Harm by Hurricane Irma
STUART, FL – September 12, 2017 – Tony Paquin, Co-Founder and CEO of The iRemedy Healthcare Companies, Inc. (“iRemedy” or “the Company”), today reported that the Company’s team has completed a full assessment of iRemedy’s business and technology operations and inspection of its warehousing facilities in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma; and is pleased to confirm that the impact of the storm on iRemedy was minor, limited largely to loss of power. Moreover, iRemedy’s employees and their families are thankfully all safe and accounted for. As of this afternoon, business operations have resumed and iRemedy Supply orders are being processed and fulfilled. It is important to note, however, that there may be some delay in standard delivery times due to national carrier delays caused by or relating to the storm.
Paquin stated, “While we feel very blessed that Hurricane Irma spared our people and our facilities, the same may not be true for some of our medical product suppliers based in Florida. We have been actively reaching out to each of our vendors operating in the State to confirm their respective operational status and, thus far, have identified only one supplier headquartered in Miami which may have been compromised. Consequently, we will look to redirect orders and drop shipments accordingly to ensure that essential medical supplies and healthcare products are readily accessible and deliverable to and where they are needed by physicians, hospitals and other specialty care providers who have come to rely on iRemedy.”
“I would also like to express just how very appreciative we are of all the hard work that our State and local community leaders committed to helping Floridians prepare for this epic storm. Further, our heartfelt thanks go out to all the brave men and women in local law enforcement, fire and safety and emergency healthcare who put their own lives at risk to help others in need during this horrific ordeal,” concluded Paquin.
