PLAINVIEW, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Two of the Northeast's leading durable medical equipment providers,
Allcare Medical and Landauer Metropolitan, announced today they have
reached an agreement to merge their operations.
The merger, expected to be completed by the end of May, will result in
one of the nation's 10 largest durable medical equipment suppliers and
the largest independently operated company of its kind in the Northeast.
The newly merged company will operate under the Landauer Metropolitan
Lou Rocco will continue as Landauer Metropolitan's CEO, while Win Hayes,
currently CEO of Allcare Medical, will become Landauer Metropolitan's
"This merger leverages the trusted name of Landauer Metropolitan and its
proud history of providing the highest quality home medical equipment,
with the forward thinking, progressive leadership at Allcare Medical,"
said Rocco. "The combined businesses will provide all types of
respiratory equipment and services, home medical equipment, and supplies
to patients throughout the Northeast and medical equipment Mid-Atlantic regions."
The merger comes at a critical moment in the durable medical equipment
industry. Beginning in July 2013, Medicare will expand its competitive
bidding program to more areas of the country, which will reduce the
number of providers eligible to supply durable medical equipment to
Allcare's Hayes said the merged company will be better equipped to
handle the increased volume that is likely to result from those changes,
without comprising service levels. He also noted that Landauer will
benefit from having a large portfolio of contracts to service Medicare
beneficiaries in its service areas.
"This merger creates a much stronger platform to provide patients high
quality home medical equipment and respiratory services," Hayes said,
"but more importantly, it will further Allcare's core understanding of
managed care and the important role medical equipment solutions can play
in reducing re-admissions and improving clinical outcomes while managing
cost of care."
Rocco and Hayes stated that the management teams of the two companies
will integrate to ensure continuity of service for patients, referral
sources, and institutional accounts.
Allcare, which is headquartered in Plainview, N.Y., currently operates
in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, while Landauer, headquartered
in Mount Vernon, N.Y., serves patients in nine Northeastern and
Mid-Atlantic states, and the District of Columbia.
Medical Equipment - Choosing the Right Supplier
The purchase of advanced laboratory equipment is necessary to ensure accurate diagnostic reports and enhance the efficiency of medical facilities. Choosing the right supplier of medical laboratory equipment is therefore crucial. Many important considerations influence this choice.
The Right Supplier - Points to Consider
To serve the varying needs of medical facilities, established lab equipment suppliers stock different kinds of devices such as hematology analyzers, blood gas analyzers, electrolyte analyzers, centrifuges, chemistry analyzers, microscopes, coagulation analyzers, immunology analyzers, and so on. By selecting the right supplier, they can obtain the equipment that meets their analytical requirements as well as stays within their budget. Points they need to consider while choosing a supplier are:
Reputation and experience: It is important to ensure that the supplier has a good reputation and sufficient industry experience.
Quality: Most medical lab equipment suppliers now offer both new and recertified laboratory devices. It is necessary that the products offered are standardized equipment with proper warranty. Reliable dealers offer extended warranty options for recertified equipment.
Service contracts and post-sales support: The supplier should offer proper service contracts and excellent post-sales support, including in-house service options, on time material service visits.
Online purchase option: Reputable suppliers maintain online stores that facilitate product selection from a wide range of brands, comparison of features, technical specifications and prices. They would also offer convenient options for placing orders.
Competitive pricing: Finding a supplier that offers both new and recertified equipment at competitive prices is essential.
Product delivery: Reliable medical laboratory equipment suppliers will ensure timely product delivery even to laboratories in international locations. They would have also necessary arrangements in place for safe and prompt delivery of the equipment.
Online Resources to Locate Reliable Suppliers
To choose the right supplier that can offer quality equipment at reasonable prices as well as excellent service, it is necessary to do some research. Web directories and the yellow pages provide a wealth of information on various suppliers of medical equipment. Blogs, articles and forums are a great help when it comes to choosing the right supplier.
A motorcycle ambulance and a solar-powered hearing aid to heal the poor?
Instead of the usual donated medicines and health equipment, some experts are inventing new products for the poor, including those two inventions that were showcased recently at an engineering conference in London.
In a new report published online Monday in the journal Lancet, the United Nations highlights innovations like using text messages in South Africa to remind women with HIV to get their babies tested and tucking medicines into Coca-Cola crates to reach remote villages.

But I think it's going to be temporary. In any case, let's give it a look, shall we. Try this search for Ostomy products. You can sort if by the Ostomy Price or the Ostomy Category or whatever. Pretty cool.
Here's a search for scooters, and a search for ActiveCare Medical. Much better than the same result in the old Yahoo! search engine.
