Medical equipment sales, service and training company, interMed, knows that working smarter and harder is the key to thriving. it’s especially crucial in the healthcare field, where companies face regulation, reform and economic uncertainty on a daily basis.
“interMed seeks out the best value and most cost effective approach to satisfy our customer without any sacrifice to quality delivered,” says david Fox, Coo.
In business for more than 15 years, interMed has continued to grow. The company added 10 employees in 2010 and is looking to hire more.
Scott trombley, VP of interMed Biomedical, attributes the company’s success to its commitment to quality.
“Quality is foremost in patient care and is a mark of professionalism. it’s the way we do business, and, in part, our philosophy,” trombley said.
While maintaining the highest quality is at the top of the company’s ideals, there is one other value that drives the company’s culture – volunteerism.
InterMed believes in the importance of volunteering so much that it offers every employee the option of taking up to one day per month to volunteer “on the clock.” Most of the staff chooses this option.
InterMed employees volunteer with organizations such as tyler’s Hope for a dystonia Cure, which was founded by interMed President Rick staab, Gainesville Rotary, Gainesville Jaycees, the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, the American Heart Association, and many more.
“We need to remember that we are not just working inside our clients’ facilities. We also live in the community, we work as neighbors, we go to these facilities when in need,” Fox said. “i say this to impress that we are vested in the community in which we work. it is only natural that we are involved in the functions which make our community a better place to live and also have the privilege to service the very equipment which potentially could be used on us.
