PENSAR MEDICAL IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW JOINT MARKETING AND SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH UNIVERSAL HOSPITAL SERVICES (UHS)
Corona, CA—February 23, 2016 — Pensar Medical, a new alternative in negative pressure wound therapy systems, has announced a new agreement with Universal Hospital Services to distribute the WoundPro cost effective systems in acute-care hospitals.
This new distribution agreement between the two companies allows acute-care customers a viable option in choosing negative pressure systems. This agreement marks a positive step in the growth of Pensar Medical. Prior to this time, Pensar’s systems were mainly available in the sub-acute market place.
“We are very excited to partner with UHS because of its nationwide service and support network,” said Michael Ferraro, VP of Sales, Pensar Medical. ”This new arrangement will allow acute-care customers the opportunity to take advantage of our cost-effective NPWT Systems.”
“This strategic alliance with UHS will increase our ‘sphere of influence’ in the healthcare market and provide acute-care customers with a real choice when it comes to negative pressure,” said David Buchicchio, VP of Marketing, Pensar Medical. “We feel the absence of competition in negative pressure wound therapy has kept costs way too high and for far too long.”
“Since we started, we have experienced great success with our efforts in homecare, nursing homes and SNF’s and believe the time is right to enter the acute-care arena. But we knew we could not achieve our expectations for growth in this market without the right logistics partner. We felt we needed a partner with a nationwide and centralized delivery system in acute care and believe that no company does it better than UHS.”
Going forward, Pensar’s role will be to introduce, market and sell our products and systems to acute-care customers. After that UHS will take on the service role, including delivery, tracking, maintenance and billing.
“We believe UHS has always been dedicated to providing exemplary service and technology management to their acute-care customers. This new agreement provides hospitals new choices when it comes to negative pressure therapy.”
Pensar Medical, established in 2012, has been providing the sub-acute care market with cost-effective Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Systems since its inception. Pensar’s nationwide distributor network in the sub-acute market place has helped make the company a viable alternative in negative pressure within a very short time.
