Rennova Health Signs Agreement with Academy Medical to Provide Laboratory Services to U.S. Federal Government Customers
Includes All Federal Government Facilities Including VA Hospitals
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- Rennova Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNVA) (NASDAQ: RNVAZ), a vertically integrated provider of industry-leading diagnostics and supportive software solutions to healthcare providers, announces the signing of a contract with Academy Medical, LLC, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, to promote the sale of services to the United States federal government. Academy has substantial experience in establishing, operating and maintaining effective sales channels, contract vehicles and business protocols, with a principal focus on federal government customers of medical services and supplies.
This agreement confirms Rennova’s Riviera Beach Laboratory’s appointment as its exclusive federal government business channel partner to provide for the sale of the services to federal government customers, including U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Health and Human Services facilities, among others, as well as non-government and commercial institutional customers.
“The signing of this contract with Academy Medical is an excellent step forward for Rennova Health, as it opens up an important, very large market for our testing services,” said Seamus Lagan, chief executive officer of Rennova Health. “In particular, we look forward to providing not only a broad panel of traditional tests, but also key pharmacogenomics tests. A growing number of pharmaceutical products contain guidance for pharmacogenetics biomarker testing in their labels, and the Department of Veterans Affairs in particular has shown an increased awareness of the utility of this type of testing. Importantly, this agreement with Academy Medical, while providing for a substantial broadening of the market for our laboratory tests, also provides for a reliable payment mechanism,” added Mr. Lagan.
“We are excited to partner with Rennova Health for laboratory tests within U.S. federal government facilities,” said Edward Desser, Chief Executive Officer of Academy Medical. “In addition to Rennova being able to provide a full complement of diagnostics, we were impressed by the company’s strict compliance procedures. We look forward to a mutually productive relationship.”
