Ultra Select Medical, a North Charleston, S.C.-provider of ultrasound sales, repair, and preventative maintenance, has merged with Platinum Healthcare, an authorized distributor for Siemens Heathineers’ ultrasound technologies. W.C. Peeler, Mike Wilson, and Chris Munyon, the managing partners of Ultra Select Medical, say that bringing Platinum into the fold will take their company to the next level.

“We believe that the merger will help us to provide the most comprehensive, convenient, cutting-edge, and innovative ultrasound system offerings in the industry,” Peeler says. “We are looking forward to moving on to the next chapter of our company’s growth endeavors with Platinum at our side.” 

Howard Taroff, president of Platinum Healthcare, also lauded the merger, commenting: “Combining with the Ultra Select team will enable us to continue to grow our installed base and provide exceptional support to our new and existing customers. We are excited about the combined entity and look forward to continuing our place as one of the premier providers of ultrasound systems to the private sector in the U.S.”
