LINET and Premier to Partner to Provide Health care Providers
with Access to the Latest Hospital Bed Technology
The Charlotte Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce a critical partnership reached between two headquarter member companies in the rapidly growing health care sector. LINET, a worldwide leader in hospital beds and patient room equipment, is now an approved supplier to Premier healthcare alliance’s 2,700 acute care facilities.
“The agreement with Premier is very special on many levels,” says Colin Bain, president and CEO of Linet Americas. “A major strategic reason for locating our business in Charlotte was our strong desire to partner with Premier to leverage their size and reach to bring our innovative designs to the American marketplace.”
Linet and Premier developed their relationship over the past two years. In 2011, Premier recognized Linet’s Multicare bed at its Innovation Celebration, which showcases advances in health care while highlighting health care suppliers committed to innovation and improving patient outcomes.
“The Charlotte Chamber congratulates Linet and Premier for this exciting partnership. We are proud to have played a role in introducing these two member companies,” says Charlotte Chamber President and CEO Bob Morgan. “Together they offer the potential for even greater job creation in the future."
Founded in 1990, Linet is an international leader in health care technology with patient beds installed in more than 100 countries. In addition to its thousands of acute care facilities, Premier also maintains the nation’s largest clinical, financial and outcomes database with information on one in four patient discharges. A world leader in delivering measurable improvements in care, Premier works with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
