Equipment Maintenance Solutions, based in Ferndale, Mich., has partnered with Chicago-based Avante Health Solutions, expanding the company’s capabilities into diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology, medical/surgical, and other parts of the healthcare continuum.

“We share a common vision for superior client service, a team-oriented and supportive culture for our employees, and growth in a changing healthcare environment,” says Seth Davis, president of EMS. “We think our clients will be very eager to access the many service and product solutions that the Avante family of companies provide.”

“Our core business has focused primarily on MRI and CT equipment service, sales, parts, and rentals,” Davis adds. “With Avante’s national footprint and financial strength, we will be able to offer our clients and partners a more comprehensive solution while also accelerating our growth rate. They are the right strategic partner for us.”

Steve Inacker, President of Avante, said EMS further strengthens Avante’s overall reach and capabilities.

“We are focused on strategic consolidation in a fragmented industry,” Inacker says. “EMS is a perfect addition to our team in terms of their culture and commitment to quality products and services.”
