STREAMWAY® System is network's preferred Fluid Waste Management System for new centers
MINNEAPOLIS - Skyline Medical Inc. (OTCQB: SKLN) began installing a second order of its direct-to-drain STREAMWAY Systems for one of the largest networks of ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) in the United States. The national group already had nine STREAMWAY units installed at surgery centers around the country. It has ordered an additional 33 units, which are being installed in 2014.
"We're excited that this important and fast-growing player in the ASC market -- which has more than 150 physician-owned and-operated U.S. centers today -- recognized the benefits of our revolutionary medical waste fluid management system," said Josh Kornberg, CEO of Skyline Medical. "After experiencing improved safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness with our product last year, the company quickly ordered more STREAMWAY Systems for new centers it is opening across the country, which will bring the total sales this year to 42 units," Kornberg said.
The national group's additional STREAMWAY units are being installed at centers being opened in Florida, Texas, Arizona and several other states.
About Skyline Medical Inc.
Skyline Medical Inc. produces a fully automated, patented, FDA-cleared, waste fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates staff exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the healthcare environment. Antiquated manual fluid handling methods -- which require hand carrying and emptying filled-fluid canisters -- present an exposure risk and potential liability. Skyline Medical's STREAMWAY System fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluids and is designed to: 1) reduce overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improve compliance with Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines, 3) improve efficiency in the operating room, and radiology and endoscopy departments -- leading to greater profitability, and 4) provide greater environmental stewardship by helping to eliminate the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills annually in the United States.
