SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Convergint Technologies announces the acquisition of Advantage Medical Inc. (AMI), a leader in the deployment and support of wireless patient security systems in acute care hospitals.
Convergint says the acquisition further strengthens its position within the healthcare safety and security market across the United States.
AMI brings Convergint over thirty years of healthcare industry expertise, with a specialization in patient security and real-time location systems (RTLS).
AMI’s commitment to delivering innovative healthcare solutions is supported by its comprehensive approach to providing security solutions to mitigate risk and enhance protection in healthcare facilities, according to the company.
“Advantage Medical embodies similar values to Convergint; they embrace a culture-first community centered on colleagues and are committed to being their customers’ best service provider,” says Ken Lochiatto, CEO of Convergint Technologies. “We look forward to joining our teams, learning from one another, and further deepening our expertise to continue to deliver best-in-class safety and security solutions across the healthcare industry.”
AMI provides various healthcare solutions, including infant and pediatric patient protection, patient security, staff protection, asset tracking, location and environmental, hand hygiene compliance, and automated monitoring. Together these solutions are said to help improve patient and staff safety and security, efficiency, equipment utilization, and compliance.
“There is an amazing alignment between the organizational cultures of AMI and Convergint Technologies,” says Dan Rea, president & CEO of AMI. “We have both centered our businesses around a similar philosophical approach: the customer comes first, and failure is not an option. AMI is looking forward to the opportunities this new relationship will bring to existing and new customers alike.”
The deal comes four months after Convergint acquired Innovative Medical Systems, a leading value-added reseller of select acute care and technical products for hospitals; and Smith Hamilton, a nationally recognized provider of equipment and security solutions for financial institutions.
