Cousino Medical Services was born from the expertise of Cousino Restoration, LLC and The Cousino Group, Inc., one of this area’s oldest, and largest property damage and disaster response contractors.

About Michael Cousino - President Cousino Restoration
“We must custom tailor our services to meets and exceed customer needs and expectations. Healthcare facilities are like no other. Most [healthcare] facilities never close, they run 24/7/365 and do not turn away patients for treatment and services, therefore we too never close. We work around the clock without stop to fully restore healthcare facilities so they could be back to 100% functionality”.
“However specialized the problem, complex or simple, we have the experience and expertise for effective communications with whomever, whether it’s with environmental engineers, infection prevention specialists, or building and facilities maintenance and building directors, we work together to provide complete turnaround quickly. In fact, we have completed million dollar jobs in as little as one week”.
