ABM Supports Healthcare Market - Analyst Blog


To meet the evolving needs of the healthcare market, ABM Industries Incorporated ( ABM) recently announced the  launch of its ABM Healthcare Support Services business that integrates the strengths of HHA Services, Healthcare Parking Systems of America and ABM Health.

The strategic move by the company is to identify the service needs of key vertical markets and then find the best solution for them. ABM Healthcare Support Services is the only company that can deliver this scale of services for the entire healthcare ecosystem. The services provided by ABM include clinical engineering and healthcare technologies, environmental services, food service, facility management, energy solutions, hospitality & valet, parking and patient observation, and patient transportation and security.

Through its  clinical engineering expertise, ABM can guarantee performance-based results and provide improved Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) and patient satisfaction scores.

The solution requires both on-site and route-based specialists that can provide services to the entire healthcare system irrespective of building size or location.
