This year marks the third year in a row WestCMR was named one of the "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare" by Becker's Healthcare.
The Beat Goes On
This year WestCMR hit several milestones including being acknowledged for the 2nd year in a row by Becker's Healthcare as one of the "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare", initiation of corporate wide Philanthropic program, completion of the building expansion including a fully equipped gym, increasing staff up to 38 employees, and continued momentum in both market penetration and company growth.
Having an Impact
WestCMR was honored with the 2013-2014 Platinum Supplier Award from MedAssets, one that less than 5% of MedAssets' 1800 suppliers receive.
Making a Statement
May 2014 marked the first time WestCMR was named one of the "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare" by Becker's Healthcare.
In 2013, the WestCMR team changed gears and made a concerted effort to make an impact on the organizations they work with along with their communities.
In mid-2013, WestCMR broke ground on a 11,000 sq.ft. expansion and ended the year with over 30 employees. The goal was to add 6-8 more employees by the end of 2014.
A Seat at the Table
By 2013 WestCMR grew to 22 employees and moved from Seminole, FL to a fully renovated 15,000 sq.ft. facility in Clearwater, FL. Additionally, WestCMR became the first company of its kind to secure a national contract with one of the big 5 GPOs (MedAssets).
What was once a company of "one" became 13 employees in 2011. These talented specialists embarked on the difficult journey of creating awareness in a relatively complacent healthcare industry by challenging the status quo.
Our first employee was hired in 2009. WestCMR began assembling a team of specialists to further solidify its position as the single largest buyer of surplus surgical disposable products in the U.S. market.
WestCMR was founded in May of 1997 by Randy Ware (current CEO). Randy's vision to address the immense waste in healthcare spurred an innovative way to put money back into healthcare facilities and prevent viable surgical supplies from ending up in landfills.
