QuickMedical is now one of only 176 firms nationwide who have a Schedule 65 Medical VA GSA contract and is verified to participate in Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) set asides. QuickMedical has been verified by the Center for Veterans Enterprise.
By law, the federal government must give special consideration to small businesses when awarding specific government contracts. It also means that the over 12,000 items of medical equipment and medical supplies on our FSS/GSA contracts can be easily purchased and accessed by government facilities and VA hospitals.
QuickMedical is the Veteran Owned Small Business that tries harder. Our federal government customers agree. Read more here.
QuickMedical and what was once known as QuickMedical GS Veteran Sales have consolidated operations to become a complete unit. QuickMedical GS is now a full division of QuickMedical. Read the press release here.
What does this mean for QuickMedical's customers? It means that QuickMedical can now provide enhanced service benefits to our Federal Government customers. We've tripled the front line sales staff which means we can provide a customer with a quote in 24 hours or less. It also means we have a new name, but the same great customer service and medical equipment and medical supplies for the government.
QuickMedical invites our government customers to look for our new name, QuickMedical GS online and when you use GSA Advantage. Watch the video below on how to use GSA Advantage.

The service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform is important and close to us. We'd like to take this time to say thank you to all veterans, past and present. We're here because of you.
Yesterday QuickMedical celebrated our Annual Government Sales BBQ. We enjoyed exceptional October weather, delicious grilled meats, and refreshing beverages right outside our facility in the afternoon after a long, busy Thursday.
QuickMedical Government Sales isn't just a division of QuickMedical-- it's a valuable team of QuickMedical employees from different departments working together to make sure that veterans, soldiers, and government employees get the very best medical equipment and supplies.
Greg from Brewer attended as our special guest. Director of Government Sales Tom said a few words of thanks to the staff and management for another great year of government sales. And everyone enjoyed the good food and camaraderie. Click read more below for more pictures of the event.
If you were alive 11 years ago today, you remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard, read, or saw the news on TV or the Internet about the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington DC. Since the attacks, countless words have been written about the attacks-- what they mean to the United States, to the world, to the individuals directly affected and to those indirectly affected. Beyond words, the images-- the flaming towers, dismal, broken architecture, and missing person fliers littering lower Manhattan -- have been repeated endlessly. The reproduction of these words and images distances us from the event itself, in a way comforting us, letting us know it's in the past, safely memorialized and remembered, not experienced.
Instead of cluttering the Internet with more words and pictures about 9/11/01, let's simply take a moment to do nothing, to be still, to be silent for a few minutes today at some point and experience the life that we have now and be grateful. Not to comfort us or discomfort us, but to remind us that in the same way terrible events can bring us together as Americans and as humans, positive events can do the same, and despite all our individual differences and disagreements, we really are more similar to each other than different.
Today QuickMedical joins all Americans in a moment of silence for the lives lost on September 11, 2001. We honor the sacrifice and service of our past and present servicemen and women.

QuickMedical Question Guy:
I noticed on your web site, your division QuickMedical GS is a disabled vet small business. What does that mean? I understand President Obama signed a bill requiring vet companies to get certified. I was just wondering if you got certification, yet?
Mr. Proud to be a Vet
Thanks for your service, Mr. Vet. It's true QuickMedical GS is a service disabled veteran-owned, small business. We have been for a while. In October 2010, President Obama signed the Veterans Benefits Act. Section 104 of this law expands VA's requirement to verify business status as owned and operated by Veterans, service-disabled Veterans or eligible surviving spouses. The law is intended to protect our Veterans, their families and survivors who have Veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB). Effective October 13, 2010, no new small business applicant may appear in the VIP database unless it has been verified as owned and controlled by a Veteran or service-disabled Veteran.
In answer to your question, Government Sales director Tom Smith says, "It only took 90 days but we have been verified by the VetBiz Registry." We can proudly display the "Verified" logo as a Veteran Owned Small Business, and appear in the database!
If you purchase medical equipment and supplies for the government or a government agency, QuickMedical GS is your online source.
If you read the blog often, you might remember QuickMedical is a Veteran Owned Small Business and government sales is an important part of QuickMedical. Selling medical equipment and supplies to the government is an important job that makes us proud. 2011 has just begun, but it's the perfect time to talk to our government sales team about how QuickMedical can help your facility or department.

Today in the United States, we celebrate Veterans Day. Throughout the world, November 11th is known as Armistice Day. In 1918, World War I officially ended on November 11th and Woodrow Wilson subsequently proclaimed it a holiday for world peace.
Unfortunately for President Wilson, world peace was a fleeting dream, the world was at war a few years later.
In 1954 President Dwight Eisenhower changed Armistice Day into Veterans Day, recognizing all American veterans, from all wars. It has remained a Federal holiday since.
QuickMedical is a veteran owned business and our government sales division serves the veteran hospitals and military communities. Consequently today, we pause a moment to say thank you to the men and women who have served our country, in war and in peace. We might not be here without you.
October has brought us some unexpectedly nice weather. Last week we were lucky enough to enjoy a sunny, clear day in the 60s during our annual Government Sales BBQ . CEO Scott (right) and Government Sales Director Tom(left) cooked up some tasty steak and bratwurst, along with some root beer and real beer to quench our thirst, from our favorite local brewery--Snoqualmie Brewery. The weather was so fantastic we couldn't help but haul the chairs outside and sit on the patio of our parking lot. Good times!
