Morton Plant Mease Opens The Marketplace at Bardmoor Outpatient and Surgery Center|
Specialized Medical Care Products, Gifts, Gourmet Java Offered
LARGO, Fla., (December 8, 2008) - Patients, their family members and friends will experience convenience and comfort at The Marketplace. The newly opened retail store is just steps away from physician offices at Bardmoor Outpatient and Surgery Center and offers a large selection of specialized over-the-counter medical care products in one convenient location.
“When creating The Marketplace, we consulted with physicians at Bardmoor to determine how the retail location could best meet the needs of patients,” said Laural Slater, director, business development, BayCare Health System and project leader for the creation of The Marketplace at Bardmoor. “We learned there are a number of specialized over-the-counter medical care products that typically aren’t found all in one location. A patient may have to make trips to several different stores to get the medical products they need. The Marketplace provides patients with convenient, one-stop-shopping within walking distance of physician offices.”
Specialized over-the-counter medical care products offered at The Marketplace include:
- Lotions, deodorants, skin and mouth care products for cancer care
- Allergy care products
- Wound care products
- Muscle relief products
- Enablers – utensil grips, zipper/button aids, reachers/grabbers
- Organic skin care products
In addition to the convenience of providing over-the-counter medical care products, The Marketplace also offers a full coffee bar with barista services. Visitors can sip on fresh brewed gourmet coffee as well as purchase items such as get well cards, neck pillows, various food items, aromatherapy sprays and body wraps, inspirational books and magazines.
The Marketplace and Bardmoor Outpatient and Surgery Center are located at 8787 Bryan Dairy Rd., in Largo. The store encompasses approximately 680 square feet near the main entrance of Bardmoor. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Marketplace opened to the community on November 18.
The addition of the Marketplace is one of several recent enhancements at Bardmoor. In February and March of 2008 Morton Plant Mease Health Care completed an expansion of Bardmoor with the opening of a new 75,000 square-foot medical arts building and a 15,000 square-foot emergency department.
