After retiring from the Veterans Medical Center in December 2012, Robert Monette decided to start doing some work with a local biomedical company in Denver to keep himself busy. Before he knew it, Monette was traveling around the country supporting hospitals and independent service organizations (ISOs). All of this growth was by word of mouth. Realizing how much he missed field service, Monette began seeking out opportunities. He obtained his CVE certification as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. With this certification, Monette started bidding on government contracts in support of biomedical engineering departments.
Mountain States Biomedical Services (MSBS) is a dependable medical equipment service provider and a reputable company that works closely with health care facilities nationwide and overseas, Monette explains. Be it repair or maintenance work for a few days to a few months, MSBS can help with all of a facility’s short-term staffing and medical equipment service needs. The staff aims to provide clients with cost-effective alternatives for all of their medical equipment repair and maintenance needs. Owner Robert Monette has been with Mountain States Biomedical Services Inc. in the Greater Denver Area since December 2012. For more than five years, he has been working hard to grow the company to be one of the most trusted names in the medical equipment industry. He has more than 35 years of experience in the field of biomedical technology.
Q: What is the main focus of Mountain States Biomedical Services?
A: Currently we are focused on supporting the government through contracts with the VA and DOD. Our current contracts include servicing contrast injectors, patient ventilators, infusion pumps and general biomedical support. As of this year, we have started to expand our customer base, offering our support to civilian hospitals.
Q: Can you tell us a little about the services MSBS offers?
A: We currently offer general biomedical support with short-term staffing needs. We also offer services on all makes of contrast injectors with all our staff having formal training on them. Additionally, MSBS services most brands of patient ventilators. We offer service on Fresenius dialysis machines, and we just signed a national service agreement with ACIST Medical as a service provider for their contrast injectors. Finally, we recently signed a national service agreement with Surgical Lasers Inc. as their service provider.
Q: How does MSBS stand out in the medical equipment field?
A: My background in patient care gives us a very different perspective on medical equipment than other biomedical service companies. We understand that when the equipment is not working properly, it is not just an inconvenience, it is a shortfall in patient care. Our goal is to reduce that shortfall in a cost-effective and timely manner. Also, the company stands apart with its affiliations and certifications. It is affiliated with the Colorado Association of Biomedical Equipment Technicians (CABMET) and is a Certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business.
Q: Do you have any specific goals that you want MSBS to achieve in the near future?
A: We are opening an office in the Seattle area this year and would like to have offices in Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami and Boston in the next five years.
