Best Upon Request patient concierge
Dayton Children’s has partnered with Best Upon Request to help cross off items on your to-do list so you can focus on caring for your child. The person that helps with these services is called a concierge. The concierge helps coordinate different services and activities to help make your stay more comfortable and less stressful. Here are some ways that Best Upon Request can help:
• Running errands on and off our campus
• Picking up meals and coordinating food deliveries
• Preparing and mailing packages
• Planning birthday parties
• Getting groceries
• Coordinating car repairs
• Getting gas for your car
• Assisting with travel arrangements
• Going to the bank
The only thing you will pay for is the cost of the goods and services requested. For example, if the concierge takes your car to get gas, you would pay for the price of the gas. Here’s how to get in touch with the concierge:
• Call or text 937-272-4975
• Email DCHconcierge@bestuponrequest.com
• Make a request in person when the concierge rounds to patient rooms.
ATM (cash machine)
Cash machines are available. There is no fee to use the ATM, though your own bank may charge one.
