Port City Medical Specializes in Supplying Healthcare Industry
The Business View – October 2018 / Small Business of the Month
Port City Medical got its start importing hydrophilic urinary catheters from Turkey 12 years ago. Now the company provides a wide range of medical supplies to a host of local doctors, dentists and organizations, including the Mobile County Health Department, Mobile Emergency Management System (EMS) and the City of Mobile.
Port City Medical is the Mobile Area Chamber’s Small Business of the Month.
The company offers a full range of medical supplies, from wheelchairs to surgical instruments to needles and syringes and everything in between.
“The main thing that sets us apart from other companies is same-day service,” said Business Manager Amanda Floyes. “If you order something from us in the morning, it will be received by that afternoon. We also strive for outstanding customer service at all times, no matter the situation.”
Company representatives are available to go to patient’s homes to teach them how to use the equipment and advise them on the best models for their particular situation.
Port City Medical and its seven employees give back to the community through donations to Mobile EMS’s breast cancer awareness efforts and other charitable pursuits sponsored by doctors and clients. Recently, the company donated blood pressure cuffs to Victory Health Partners.
“We believe it is important to help your community out when they are in need,” Floyes said.
The business is seeing strong growth in supplying durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and the like, and Floyes believes the future is bright.
“The medical industry will continue to develop and grow with the aging population,” she said. “We would like to maintain a stable company and continue to age and grow with it to provide medical supplies and durable medical equipment to doctors’ offices, our community and people around the world.”
