NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Verus Healthcare, Inc. announced today that it is replacing the name Sleep Nation and CPAP Care Club with one corporate name, Verus Healthcare. While traditionally focusing on CPAP supplies for patients with sleep apnea, Verus will be expanding into new products based on feedback from its customers. New products will include catheters and nebulizers products.
Verus is from the Latin word for "truth", "integrity" and "trust" and is a corporate name that CEO, Richardson M. Roberts, has used in the past in another industry. "There is a legacy of providing excellent service in this name and it means a lot to me because we provided that experience for customers in a past company. Now, we plan to take it to another level because we are dealing with patients' health. Nothing is more important to us than the quality of care that we provide to our patients."
In addition to the name change, the Company has decided to venture into new products. "Since we are now receiving well over a thousand patient satisfaction surveys per month, we are able to clearly see that our customers want us to provide a variety of products to them," said Roberts. "We also realized that the software platform we've built and the capabilities of our employees are well-suited to support catheters and nebulizer products nationwide. We believe we can provide a superior service to our patients than what they are receiving for these products today."
Verus Healthcare nearly tripled its number of customers in 2013 and it sees that trend continuing in existing and new product categories. "We plan to hire sales people in the field to work with physicians directly for the referrals related to these new products but acquisitions will continue to supplement our organic growth initiatives," said Roberts. "In addition, our patients can use their insurance or buy direct from us, and if they pay themselves, they are benefitting greatly from all our systems as well as our ability to pass our low product costs on to them. We are really excited about expanding both the insurance and patient pay portions of our business in 2014."
