Per Mar subsidiary Midwest Alarm Services has provided life-safety solutions to the healthcare provider for 20 years.

DAVENPORT, Iowa — Per Mar Security Services has selected Great River Health Systems to receive its Customer of the Year designation.

Great River Health Systems is a regional integrated health care system that includes Great River Medical Center, retail pharmacies, retail medical equipment and supplies providers and physician clinics in Fairfield, Fort Madison, Keokuk, Mediapolis, Mount Pleasant, Wapello and West Burlington, Iowa.

Per Mar has been the security provider for the health care system since 2013. Per Mar’s subsidiary, Midwest Alarm Services, has provided life-safety solutions and consultative services to the healthcare provider for 20 years. This past year, Per Mar’s investigations team took over their background checks as well.

As Great River Health Systems’ needs have changed over the years, Per Mar and Midwest Alarm Services have adapted and provided customized security and life-safety solutions to fit their needs, according to an announcement.

“As a 20 year customer, Great River Health Systems has always made their life-safety system a priority rather than an afterthought,” says Mike Wells, business development manager, Midwest Alarm Services.

Great River Health Systems invites Per Mar to its quarterly hospital safety meetings. “The relationship between Great River Health Systems and Per Mar Security Services has grown from a few hours a week to full time armed officers,” says John Mercer, director of facilities, Great River Health Systems. “This growth is due to our changing needs, but most importantly because Per Mar has provided us with quality people that really do care about the service they provide.”

Per Mar Operations Manager Rose Willer attends the facility meetings and continually addresses the end-user’s needs. “Our working relationship with Great River Health Systems has been exceptional. They do not see Per Mar as outsiders, but rather a valuable member of the hospital team. It’s a truly great partnership.”

Established in 1953, Per Mar Security Services is the largest, family-owned, full-service security company in the Midwest with more than 2,400 team members, operating in 22 branch locations and 19 satellite locations.
