Our central customer care center (CCC) ensures that all PPS patients receive exceptional service for the entire length of their therapy. While the local staff at each center provides on-the-ground personalized service for patients and physicians, the CCC complements the centers by providing ongoing systematic follow-up and education for patients as well as contacting physician's offices for recertification and other required paperwork.
The customer care center is located in beautiful Lexington, Kentucky. Situated in a light industrial area, the CCC is within close proximity of Lexington's primary roads as well as two interstates. Several comfortable hotels accommodate visitors nearby and Bluegrass Airport is only 15 minutes away. The larger cities of Louisville and Cincinnati are both just over an hour drive from Lexington.
The team at the CCC is divided into several focused groups. Each group has a specific and important role to play in serving our customers. For example, we have patient-focused groups that actively contact our oxygen and nebulized medication patients, as well as answer phone calls from our patients. We also have a group that works with our centers to make sure that we have all the paperwork we need for insurances.
- Customer Care Representatives
Customer care representatives (CCRs) are the front line for patient and medical professional phone calls. They actively reach out to patients and caregivers to answer questions and to inquire about the need for additional supplies. They are always available to answer questions about respiratory supplies and services. CCRs also process orders for equipment, supplies, or medication refills, and follow up with patients to confirm delivery.
- Customer Care Team Leads
The senior customer care representatives, or "team leads," provide coaching and support to their team of CCRs. They monitor call quality and track results to ensure that patients, caregivers, medical professionals, and the PPS team receive exceptional service. They also oversee responses to assorted requests, account research, and document processing.
- Customer Care Supervisors
Customer care supervisors provide daily guidance and motivation to their teams to ensure exceptional service. They are responsible for hiring and managing CCRs, including scheduling and timekeeping. Supervisors assist with and respond to internal and external customer requests and inquiries, as well as serve as subject matter experts for product lines and related processes.

"Since I joined Pacific Pulmonary Services, I have learned that there are many patients out there waiting for us to call them and take care of their needs. I now know that this is not like any call center, and we are unique from any other company. It is truly a customer care center, because we are concerned about our patients. I greatly enjoy being a customer care rep on the inbound line. Although it is challenging, I love it because I never know what the calls are going to be about. Whether it is a doctor's office or a patient, it makes me feel great knowing that I helped them with their issues. The fact that many patients are so thankful about the services they are receiving makes this job very rewarding.
