American Medical Depot has completed its transition to a new name. The medical supply and equipment company rebranded itself AMD during the summer of 2014 and provided a several month transition period to allow customers and staff to adjust to the new brand. The transition is complete as of October.
"Operationally, nothing will change for American Medical Depot customers," said AMD CEO and co-founder Sukrit Agrawal. He said healthcare provider customers can expect the same great state-of-the-art technology, services and representation they have always had.
He added there will be benefits available to AMD customers as a result of the rebrand. These include new product and service innovations, technologies and marketing initiatives that had not previously been available.
But as important as the rebranding of American Medical Depot to AMD is, Sukrit Agrawal said he does not consider it the company's greatest achievement. “While AMD has one of the highest fulfillment rates in the medical supply industry, we are very proud of our growing our business, being a part of a new LEED Silver certified building, and winning the Defense Logistics Agency contract."
A LEED building is one that has met a standard for new building construction that are intended to make the building more "green," or energy efficient. It provides builders and owners with a system of identifying practical and measurable green building design. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, was established by the United States Green Building Council. Government officials say that LEED certified buildings, like the new silver certified AMD building, have a more positive impact on the health of its occupants and also promote renewable, clean energy.
Only buildings can become LEED certified, although the products builders include can contribute points toward different levels of LEED certification.
American Medical Depot officials say the rebranding as AMD reflects the company's progress. The new identity and image presents a better reflection of the solutions and products that AMD provides. AMD is among the leading suppliers of medical products to health care providers including acute, primary, home health and hospice, offering a wide range of supply chain centric product and service through its national distribution network.
