As a record number of hospitals turn to them to bolster supplies of life-saving medical equipment, US Med-Equip (USME)—provider of respiratory, neonatal, infusion, and other devices—announced its acquisition of Martab Equipment Management Services (MEMS).

Houston-headquartered USME partners with top hospitals across the nation in the rental, sales, service, and asset management of movable medical equipment. The acquisition expands USME’s national reach and support to more healthcare providers throughout the northeast and mid-Atlantic states.

MEMS, based in Allendale, N.J., supports hundreds of hospitals from seven regional branches: Allendale; Plainview, N.Y.; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Boston; Baltimore; and Columbus, Ohio.

“We’re excited to welcome MEMS’ dedicated team, which has extensive experience supporting Northeast hospitals working under extraordinary demands. Together, we will help more healthcare providers and the purchasing organizations that support them in taking care of patients in need,” says USME President Ed Gay.

Anthony Marmo, owner and CEO of MEMS, has dedicated his career to delivering medical equipment and services to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic healthcare community. “We’re proud to join the US Med-Equip family—one that shares our mission to do whatever it takes to help hospitals give their patients the best care possible,” Marmo says.

USME now has 60,000 devices available for rent at a moment’s notice from 40 locations nationwide, with more on the way.
