Mission is a part of the St. Joseph hospital system and from looking at the Best Upon Request website, they are not the fist hospital who has enabled the concierge service. The best part of the service is that is complimentary. I can see this evolving fast as family members are rushed today with schedules to keep and other family demands.
I wonder how far the personal errands can go with this? Let’s see can I have my dry cleaning picked up too? Overall this sounds like a nice service though and something that should prove to be helpful as being a patient today in the hospital is not without it’s level of stress with everything you need to remember.
