Gonneville, Inc. agrees to add SurgLine's medical and surgical products for direct access to multi-billion dollar VA market
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Aug. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- China Nuvo Solar Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: CNUV) today announced that SurgLine, Inc. has reached an agreement with Gonneville, Inc. (Gonneville), whereby Gonneville will add the Company's medical and surgical product lines to their products for sale to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs ("VA").
In 2009 the Veterans Health Administration ("VHA") had over 485,000 acute inpatient/medical surgical procedures and over 400,000 outpatient endoscopy procedures. With expected increases to the already 27 million veterans who have unselfishly served their country; surgical procedures are increasing, necessitating increases in the demand for quality medical supplies. The challenge is balancing the needed increase in procedures and supplies while remaining focused on the priority of reduced spending. Healthcare industry analysts stress that current healthcare spending is not sustainable. SurgLine's intention is to address this issue by providing the highest quality surgical instrumentation at the lowest possible cost, with savings upward of 30%, which will revolutionize the historical costs of medical and surgical products.
"Richard Dutch, the President and Chief Operating Officer of SurgLine, Inc. and I have worked very successful, over the past 7 years, to penetrate the Veterans Integrated Service Networks ("VISN") markets and bring value and substantial cost savings to their facilities. Our relationship is based on trust, integrity and longevity. I look forward to continued success, working with Richard and SurgLine, as the VA Hospital System is in dire need for their services," stated Don Gonneville, President of Gonneville.
Mr. Tom Toland, CEO of SurgLine was quoted as saying, "SurgLine is excited to announce this agreement that will allow us to partner with Government facilities to address this dire situation and provide significant savings to VA facilities across the Country. We are extremely pleased to have a relationship with Don and his entire organization. Based on Richard's and Don's proven track record in successfully working with the VHA, we look forward to a win win scenario for our Company, the VA and all of the veterans they serve."
"This is another step in the management team of SurgLine executing their business model. SurgLine has put together an experienced group of executives who have individually had success in their careers and we look forward to all they can accomplish as one team. We believe the Company motto of 'more value for your healthcare dollar' is evidenced by their ability to source and distribute medical and surgical products without the historical brand premium markup. This can not only be an industry changer but as importantly assist and lower the cost of taking care of our veterans," stated Henry Fong, CEO of China Nuvo Solar Energy, Inc.
