ACU-Serve and VGM Partnership

VGM & Associates has entered a strategic partnership with ACU-Serve, a leading provider of outsourced services for operational needs in the Home Medical Equipment (HME) sector.

This collaboration is set to address the increasing demand for greater efficiency in serving a growing patient population.

Addressing one of the industry’s most pressing challenges, staffing shortages, Barry Thwaits, Senior Vice President of Business Development at VGM & Associates, remarked, “VGM is committed to supporting our members and the ever-evolving needs they have as the industry progresses. One of the biggest challenges we have identified is the need for more outsourced services to address staffing shortages. Our new partnership with ACU-Serve allows us to address this need with a respected provider of services that can address multiple operational needs of DME providers.”

From ACU-Serve’s perspective, Jim Knight, Partner and CEO of ACU-Serve, shared his excitement about the partnership, “We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with VGM, a leader in post-acute healthcare. Together, we’ll forge strong industry relationships, driving innovation. This marks a long-awaited milestone, reflecting our commitment to exceptional service. Since I entered this industry in 1989, VGM has been an organization that has been an inspiration for ACU-Serve. With a wealth of ideas, we’re poised to introduce unprecedented solutions.”

This partnership is set to create a new benchmark in the HME sector by combining VGM’s extensive network and industry expertise with ACU-Serve’s innovative operational solutions, ultimately benefiting healthcare providers and patients alike.
