ROCKY HILL, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ATG Rehab has acquired Louisiana-based Custom Holdings, LLC and its subsidiaries, Custom Healthcare and Gulf Coast Rehab Equipment, which provide complex rehabilitation equipment, including customized power and manual mobility solutions, seating and positioning systems and repair services for individuals with disabilities.
ATG Rehab’s acquisition adds 13 offices in six states collectively serving more than 6,500 clients annually at 50 major hospitals and rehabilitation facilities in the Gulf Coast region.
Managers and Assistive Technology Professionals (ATPs) from Gulf Coast Rehab and Custom Healthcare will continue to provide local support and services to clients from offices in Atlanta; Birmingham and Mobile, Ala.; Hattiesburg, Miss.; Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Monroe, Shreveport and Thibodaux, La.; and Beaumont, Lubbock and Houston, Texas.
The acquisition follows ATG Rehab’s 2011 purchase of Baltimore-based Chesapeake Rehab Equipment, which has 13 offices in six Mid-Atlantic states, and its recent acquisition of the complex rehabilitation technology division of Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Medical Equipment. ATG’s acquisition of Gulf Coast Rehab and Custom Healthcare allows the company to now serve all the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico and expands its footprint to 30 states across the country.
“Custom Healthcare and Gulf Coast Rehab’s operating philosophy parallels that of ATG Rehab, which makes this transition seamless for the clients, clinicians and complex rehab facilities we serve in the Gulf Coast region,” said James Hartman, vice president of business development at Custom Holdings, LLC. “Both companies uphold the highest standards of practice in rehabilitation technology to improve our clients’ quality of life and level of independence.”
Clients of ATG Rehab’s offices in the Gulf Coast region will benefit from new resources that expedite the equipment selection and delivery process while ensuring continuous support and communication to both the individual and the clinical rehabilitation team.
“The complex rehab business has and always will be about local services that respect the distinct needs of clients and healthcare facilities in each city and town,” said ATG Rehab President and CEO Paul Bergantino. “Through strong regional leadership, ATG Rehab’s vast service area offers the best of both worlds. We’re combining the efficiencies of a large company with personalized attention from seasoned, local Assistive Technology Professionals who truly understand the communities they serve.”
