The InterMed Group of Alachua, Fla., has acquired Horizon CSA LLC, a Mooresville, N.C.-based provider of clinical engineering solutions for biomedical and imaging services. Horizon is known for its unique approach to assessing, and then managing, clients’ total costs for medical equipment servicing and administration, InterMed officials say.

Horizon’s services for healthcare institutions include: biomedical equipment repair and maintenance, clinical engineering, imaging equipment repair and maintenance, life-cycle management, inventory audit, service contract review, technology management, and clinical equipment planning and assessment.

Rick Staab, CHTM, CEO of The InterMed Group, believes the acquisition of Horizon will be a boon to company operations. “Horizon’s passionate focus on delivering best-in-class medical equipment servicing and program management aligns perfectly with InterMed’s culture. The Horizon team expands our technical skill sets and depth. The addition of the Horizon portfolio makes InterMed a sizeable player on the East Coast. We anticipate a smooth integration of these very loyal client relationships with very little change to service delivery other than offering additional services that we can now provide.

Mike Marrow and Dale Allman, co-owners of Horizon CSA, also spoke out about the acquisition, commenting: “We are very pleased to be joining The InterMed Group, and completely confident that our employees will be comfortable with the culture and management. In addition to partnering with a recognized leader in this industry, InterMed provides additional resources for our growth, and enhances service offerings we can offer the Horizon clients.”

By bringing Horizon into the fold, InterMed will be able to offer a new HTM program called “New Horizons,” company officials reveal.
