HOUSTON (June 4, 2013) – US Med-Equip, an innovative healthcare company specializing in movable medical equipment rentals and sales as well as asset management systems, continues its expansion, opening a service center in Austin, Texas.

This will be the company’s 13th office facility and seventh in Texas.

“This expansion allows us to better serve the hospitals of Central Texas. We have enjoyed a loyal customer base here for years and it is the right time to open in Austin,” said Greg Salario, co-founder and vice president of business development for US Med-Equip. “We want all acute-care hospitals in this region to know that US Med-Equip is the reliable choice and that renting medical equipment to complement an existing fleet of medical devices is a creative solution to the financial challenges that many hospitals are experiencing.”
