Sunrise, Fla., Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MDLIVE Inc., which is focused on delivering high-quality, convenient, cost effective virtual medical, dermatological, and behavioral healthcare, today announced it is offering free virtual health visits to individuals and families affected by Hurricane Florence. This program is available from Sept. 13 through Sept. 28 and falls under the MDLIVEcares initiative launched earlier this year. MDLIVEcares reflects the company’s commitment to ensuring people nationwide have uninterrupted access to medical and health professionals, especially during times of crisis. 
 

As Hurricane Florence continues its destructive path along the East Coast, residents experiencing the storm’s severe impact can call a dedicated MDLIVE hotline at 888-959-9516 and provide the code Florence to schedule their first consultations. All sessions after this will be conducted via telephone or video, enabling individuals to select the platform most convenient for their individual case. This virtual health offering is available via MDLIVE’s online medical network for the diagnosis and treatment of common health problems, as well as non-emergency dermatological ailments and behavioral issues.

“We know first-hand the destructive power that hurricanes possess and our primary goal is to provide those currently enduring the threatening force of Hurricane Florence with proper healthcare services,” said Rich Berner, Chief Executive Officer of MDLIVE. “With MDLIVE’s headquarters based in southern Florida, our team has frequently experienced the overwhelming devastation that hurricane season can impart on a community. We are proud to provide this offering through our MDLIVEcares program, an initiative that further demonstrates our commitment to providing MDLIVE clients and people nationwide with instant access to MDLIVE’s high quality, convenient and cost-effective virtual health services.”
