When looking for businesses to collaborate with in order to provide best-in-class technology to hospitals and physicians, Ryan Isham, Vice President of Med/Surg at Academy Medical, said, “It is our goal is to partner with manufacturers that can provide the solutions, currently and in the future, that can help us provide value to the government while increasing the level of care veterans, active duty military, and their families receive. Through our partnership with Astura, we will be able to further deliver on that goal.”

Academy Medical’s preferred status as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), allows the company and it’s partners priority access to government purchasing agents from the VA and DoD, ultimately creating a streamlined, more cost-effective process for all of its customers.
