The Bimeco Group: A Legacy of Excellence
Always in pursuit of bringing innovative technologies to the medical marketplace The Bimeco Group carries on a tradition started by its predecessor company, BIMECO, Inc. When a change in ownership dissolved that company, the employees organized The Bimeco Group, committed to the representation of clinically significant medical products and backing that representation with unrivaled service and clinical education. Since then, The Bimeco Group has grown to cover eight southeastern states, represented by a sales team of trained consultants whose average tenure in healthcare is over 20 years.
We strive to find innovation that makes a positive impact on healthcare today. Products that improve patient outcomes and provide true value to the hospital customers we serve. Implementing new methodologies presents challenges. Clinical education is key. Drawing on the years of service of our account managers, clinical nurse consultants we employ, and the clinical resources of our manufacturing partners, we are able to assist our client hospitals to be better able to adapt to the new technologies we help to implement, thereby better able to realize the benefits of change more quickly.
The Healthcare Industry, today, more than ever before, is changing rapidly. Hospitals are searching for products and services that help them reduce costs but at the same time maintaining a positive patient experience and improving the overall outcome of the patients they treat. They need to work with companies that understand the challenges they face and are able to bring to them worthwhile solutions. Bimeco Group has proven to be and will continue to strive to be just such a company.
