ATG Rehab has added the complex rehab business portion of Rocky Mountain Medical Equipment, with offices in Lakewood and Colorado Springs, Colo., to its portfolio.
Rocky Mountain Medical Equipment (RMME) will continue to provide prosthetics, orthotics, wound care, bathroom safety and electrotherapy products and services at its Lakewood, Colo., office, which serves the Denver area.
Said ATG Rehab President/CEO Paul Bergantino: "Like Rocky Mountain Medical Equipment, ATG Rehab is dedicated to improving our customers' quality of life. Under the expert care of the assistive technology professionals who will join the ATG team, RMME's 3,100 customers in Colorado will experience a seamless transition in services. ATG will continue to build upon the rehab services Rocky Mountain Medical Equipment has provided its clients, using the most advanced technologies and the best seating and mobility products in the industry."
RMME President Jody Wright said, "Changes in the medical environment and continued reductions in reimbursement have made it difficult for small, locally-owned companies like Rocky Mountain Medical Equipment to uphold their uncompromising standards. Working with ATG Rehab made perfect sense for us, by allowing us to maintain our commitment to our customers and ensure that their complex rehab needs are met at a high level."
ATG (atgrehab.com) will take over operations at RMME's Colorado Spring office, while RMME (rockymtnmedical.com) owners Jody and Julie Wright will provide RMME's remaining products and services from its Lakewood location.
