New U.S. Rehab Website Unveiled

Published in Complex Rehab on Wednesday, January 8, 2020

U.S. Rehab is excited to unveil our newly redesigned website, https://www.vgm.com/communities/us-rehab/! The site is designed to offer a better experience, making it easier for members to find the information they’re looking for.

U.S. Rehab's website design was updated in accordance with the new VGM & Associates website. By redesigning both websites, members who serve both the HME and complex rehab industries can access all the information they need in one place.

"VGM & Associates has always put a priority on offering quality content and solutions to its members to help their businesses thrive,” said Clint Geffert, president of VGM & Associates. “With the new vgm.com, we’re making it even easier for members to take advantage of their VGM benefits, which means they can spend more time on what truly matters—their customers.”

More updates and features will be released throughout 2020, beginning with a new members-only portal in the first quarter. Stay tuned for further information about these features!
