Company Profile for IMS Health

Published: Feb 10, 2012

(BUSINESS WIRE)--IMS provides surgical device and instrument management, as well as clinical consulting, for more than 2,500 facilities nationwide. IMS was founded as a repair alternative to the manufacturer, offering faster turn times, competitive pricing, and a commitment to help customers avoid expensive replacement instruments through proper maintenance and handling. Today, IMS provides instrument and device inventory management; real-time online data and tools to track instruments, tissue, and implants; technical capability to restore instruments to original performance standards; and on-location clinical personnel to manage sterile processing and interface with the OR. IMS’ 850 employees are guided by the Prime Directive, “Act as if your loved one is on the table.” With this in mind, IMS CEO Gene Robinson founded Instruments of Mercy® (IOM), a non-profit that provides instrument repair and refurbishment for medical mission trips. IOM’s clients include the global charity Mercy Ships®, which operates the world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship.
