New agreement produces strategic advantages for 2 fast-growing national companies
One of the largest sourcing groups for healthcare facilities in the nation and the leading healthcare equipment and logistics company have joined forces in a new agreement designed to benefit millions of patients, both companies announced today.
According to the agreement, CME will offer comprehensive healthcare equipment sourcing, bio-medical services, IT support and turnkey logistics to Capstone Health Alliance, a Regional Group Purchasing Organization of healthcare members that includes more than 37,000 beds at 250 hospitals in 23 states across the Eastern, Southeastern and Midwest regions of the country.
