Chicago-based Avante Health Solutions announces that Sterling Peloso, president of Avante Ultrasound, has assumed the operating responsibilities of Avante Patient Monitoring. This expanded role will be in addition to his current duties at Avante Ultrasound and will provide greater continuity as the ultrasound and patient monitoring businesses continue to work more closely together.

This management change comes as Andy Bonin, founder of Avante Patient Monitoring (formerly Pacific Medical), has decided to step away from the day-to-day operations and move into a strategic advisory role for the overall Avante organization. Company officials say this new role will allow all the Avante companies to capitalize on Bonin’s strengths focused around product development, strategic sourcing, supplier relations, and business development.

“I am proud to have built the leading patient monitoring business in the industry and excited about the future as we continue to execute on Avante’s growth strategy of being the premier provider of all medical equipment solutions,” Bonin says.

Steve Inacker, president and COO of Avante, also spoke out about the management changes, saying he believes that they will not only allow Avante to capitalize on the continued strengths of both leaders, but also put the company in the best position to provide enhanced services to its combined customer base.
