Vendor Partner Resources

VGM & Associates is the nation's largest and most comprehensive Member Service Organization (MSO) for post-acute healthcare including DME/HME, Respiratory, Sleep, Wound Care, Complex Rehab, Women's Health, Home Modifications, and Orthotics & Prosthetics providers. Our vendor partners help us make us who we are.

Part of Something Bigger

VGM was founded on the premise that personal connections create growth and opportunity. Today, our relationships and entrepreneurial spirit continue to allow us to add services, vendor partnerships, resources, and programs to help DMEPOS businesses operate more efficiently now and in the future. 

VGM is built on community. In fact, we’ve structured our communities so our members can belong to one or more based on specific business needs within the markets they serve. Our vendor partners are part of this community. VGM & Associates works diligently to research and vet the best of the best partners in the industry to work with for our members. We strive to endorse and propel valued partners like you forward within the market, while connecting our members to only the best products and services available. 

Power of Partnership

We take seriously our efforts to advocate for our trusted partners. A key piece to our success is correlated to the engagement a vendor partner has with our contracting and marketing teams. When we work together, we have valuable credibility.

The VGM & Associates marketing team has developed several platforms and channels to assist in the promotion of our vendor partners.  To learn more about these opportunities and how to take advantage of them download our media kit.
