Keystone Perfusion Services (KPS) has been an integral part of our Cardiothoracic program at Mercy Health System for the past 2 years. KPS was able to meet our needs quickly and integrate their team into our cardiac surgery program with ease. After arrival a complete program to meet regulatory agency parameters was established with thorough policy and procedures for perfusion services and maintenance of our perfusion equipment. An autotransfusion quality initiative was implemented to ensure our patients are receiving quality autologous blood. The perfusion team from KPS has provided cost-containment practices through strict inventory management and expiration control practices. KPS has responded to all of our demands with professionalism to enhanced and strengthened our CV program.

For the past two years, Keystone Perfusion Services has provided seamless coverage to Geisinger Healthcare System (GHS). The seasoned professionals employed by KPS are well trained and have been easily integrated into our complex system. In fact, my departments operate at full capacity and without delay when KPS is substituting for our staff members. It affords us the flexibility of having trained personnel available at all times, without committing a full time employee salary. KPS’s staff members are knowledgeable and friendly, which maintains our standard for continuity and the continuum of care within our healthcare system.

Keystone Perfusion's quick, efficient and reliable service has been invaluable to our cardiac program. Throughout the last three years, we have had to call on Keystone Perfusion several times on short notice to provide perfusion coverage for our hospital in different situations. Louis has gone above and beyond to see that we have always had the staff in order to perform our day-to-day perfusion operations.
