Miami, Florida (PressExposure) April 03, 2011 -- According to Cambridge Consultants, every day America's hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, laboratories, funeral homes, physicians, dentists, veterinarians, tattoo parlors and other sources of infectious biomedical materials and "sharps" (i.e. used needles, lancets and other devices capable of penetrating skin) produce at least 66,000 tons of medical waste. In Florida alone, United Medical Industries ("UMI") Vice President Marlene Yero estimates there are more than 40,000 such medical waste generators, all of whom are required by law to adhere to stringent biomedical waste management and disposal practices designed to protect their employees and the public from serious infection and harm. And providing that growing market with comprehensive medical waste management solutions is the focus of UmiWaste.com, UMI's recently launched Web 3.0 ready and iPad 2 accessible website.
Founded in 2002 by medical waste management industry pioneer Carlos Campos, United Medical Industries is a full service biomedical waste disposal enterprise headquartered in Miami, Florida. His sister Marlene Campos Yero is actively involved in the operations of the company, as is brother-in-law Jose Yero who serves as UMI's hands-on President. With the standards-based and high-visibility Semantic Web design of UmiWaste.com, the family-owned enterprise looks to leverage increased online exposure to expand their share of the Florida medical waste transport and disposal market by providing competitively affordable reliability in an industry where regional acquisitions by corporate giants threaten monopoly. "Through our expanding web, search and social media presence," Marlene Yero stated, "we will not only educate our customers about the dangers of improperly handling medical waste, but also keep them informed about the realities of the medical waste solutions marketplace."
Like the iPad 2, UmiWaste.com was designed with utility in mind. And so far, UMI President Jose Yero seems happy with the delivery: "From the outset Bruce Arnold was instrumental in helping us redesign our drab, outdated and unproductive website. He provided us with guidelines to simplify the web development process, and led us through it all step by step. He was professional in conduct and stayed on top of the project to assure that it was completed on schedule. We appreciate his high level of web marketing expertise, and we're very pleased with the results!"
