ACU-Serve buys Pro-Med
AKRON, Ohio – ACU-Serve has acquired Boca Raton, Fla.-based Professional Medical Administrators in a move the company says better positions it to “capture the highest collection rates at the lowest cost.”
The acquisition adds 60 U.S.-based employees, bringing ACU-Serve’s total roster to 200 employees.
“In a world where HME providers are struggling with staffing, our acquiring Pro-Med and being able to utilize their highly trained HME resources is a tremendous opportunity,” said Jim Knight, CEO of ACU-Serve. “Our strategy is to use best-in-class technology solutions and processes, coupled with well-trained U.S. staff, to capture the highest collection rates in the industry at the lowest cost. That is the value proposition our clients want and deserve, and we can now deliver that to anyone in the United States.”
Pro-Med was founded in 1996 by Sylvia Toscano, who will join ACU-Serve as vice president of client services.
“Based on the ever changing and increasingly complex industry needs and payer challenges, we repeatedly found that we needed enhanced technology and a turn-key service offering for our clientele, which is exactly what we found in ACU-Serve,” she said. “We complement each other in so many extraordinary ways, which will only continue to drive quality, productivity, collections and client success. We are very excited to bring these best-in-class solutions to our clients.”
