UK managed equipment services (MES) companies Althea UK and Medipass Healthcare have merged operations and rebranded as Ergéa. As part of the Ergéa Group, Ergéa UK managed equipment services cover radiology, radiotherapy, endoscopy, cardiology and surgical theatres. Ergéa also provides vendor independent maintenance services for endoscopy, radiology and biomedical equipment.
Althea UK ceo David Rolfe will continue as ceo of Ergéa UK. Medipass Healthcare ceo John Muolo will continue to lead the radiotherapy MES operations of Ergéa UK as executive vice president and director of strategic relationships.
“Combining the capabilities of Althea and Medipass Healthcare in the UK allows us to bring added value to customers by offering a broader range of solutions,” said Rolfe. “This enhanced capability has already enabled the first new MES contract to be signed, which is a direct result of the expertise, experience and customer relationships of the combined teams.”
Muolo added: “Being part of the Ergéa Group enables us to gain and leverage insights from clinical activities across Europe to enhance our MES offering in the UK. We are excited about the opportunities ahead and continue to prioritise the wellbeing of patients in everything we do.”
Ergéa’s service delivery, customer support, staff and workshop locations will remain the same and are not affected by the merger.
