healthcare heroes

(HOUSTON) – Healthcare improvement company Premier has awarded US Med-Equip (USME), the nation’s leading provider of rented medical equipment, a three-year contract as part of the company’s AscenDrive purchasing program.

US Med-Equip partners with top hospitals and other healthcare facilities nationwide for the rental, sale, repair and asset management of movable medical equipment. This move will help streamline movable medical equipment rentals for member organizations.

The AscenDrive program identifies and implements supply chain performance opportunities for participating facilities among Premier’s alliance of more than 4,400 U.S. hospitals and health systems. This contract awards AscenDrive collaborative members 24/7 on-demand access to USME’s life-saving devices, biomedical expertise and industry-leading technology.

“Front-line clinicians need the highest quality medical equipment to give patients the best care possible, and they need it to be patient-ready and within reach at a moment’s notice,” says USME Chief Development Officer Tim Heck. “US Med-Equip is excited to pass the Premier AscenDrive savings on to hospital partners nationwide while continuing to provide the unsurpassed service and support we’re known for.”

US Med-Equip, recognized as a Top Workplace, serves thousands of hospitals from more than 50 locations across the country, with more on the way. The 40-month contract with USME offers Premier’s AscenDrive members specially negotiated pricing and terms.
