“We look forward to our partnership with USME and its proven management team,” said ORG Managing Director Jon Gormin. “USME has an outstanding track record of growth, reliability and customer service which ORG looks forward to supporting. With growing market share in its existing geographic footprint, the company is well positioned for expansion while continuing to provide the highest levels of service to its outstanding customers.”

“We’ve enjoyed getting to know the team at Owner Resource Group and are excited about our partnership,” said Gurmit Bhatia, CEO of USME. “ORG has a strong reputation for facilitating growth while supporting management’s focus on operational execution and serving our customers’ needs. We look forward to working with the ORG team and together we expect continued success as we enter into our next phase of growth.”

USME partners with leading group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) to provide rental equipment to member hospital facilities. USME maintains a 24-7 customer service model with industry-leading equipment delivery times.
