One of our Mid-Atlantic customers contacted us in the spring with a great idea – to surprise their ten Physician Assistants with embroidered Medelita lab coats for PA Day on October 6th. It was very thoughtful of them to start planning for their surprise so far in advance, and we are happy to actualize this perfect gift for all of our customers this month. It’s not at all too late - there is still time to surprise your PAs with an embroidered Medelita lab coat or scrub set that reflects your appreciation of their hard work and dedication. As a Physician Assistant, Medelita founder Lara Francisco, PA-C, felt that the traditionally boxy, frumpy, unisex scrubs and lab coats worn everyday by hundreds of thousands of clinicians provided a poor visual correlation to the level of education and prestige of those working in the medical professions. Her goal to upgrade the quality, fit and performance of lab coats and scrubs, as well as design gender specific styles, has created a paradigm shift in the medical uniform industry. With PA day only a month away, we are offering guaranteed delivery by October 4th on any embroidered gift order placed by September 16th, for delivery in the continental U.S.. Gift orders placed without embroidery can be placed by September 30th for guaranteed delivery by October 4th. Garments without embroidery can also be returned for complimentary embroidery at your convenience. Lara recalls her days working as a PA in the ER, and feels that PA Day is often over-looked by supervisors and administrative personnel, "I encourage all practices that employ PAs to be pro-active during PA Week. Educate patients as to the valuable role of the PA, participate in community PA Day activities and educational forums, and/or do something especially nice to show appreciation toward the PAs that add value to your practice and to so many patients’ lives."
