Dade Moeller Health Group Announces Name Change to Versant Medical Physics and Radiation Safety
KALAMAZOO, MI. (July 2016) – Dade Moeller Health Group (DMHG) – a comprehensive medical physics support group – announces today that it is changing its name to Versant Medical Physics and Radiation Safety. Effective immediately, the name change reflects the company’s departure from Dade Moeller & Associates, Inc. where it previously operated as a subsidiary.
“The name Versant comes from our ability to speak, educate and consult on an array of topics,” says Marcie Ramsay, Managing Director of Versant. “With many years of experience among our skill-diverse staff, our ability to speak on wide ranging topics within the medical physics and radiation safety industries is what allows us to excel.”
Versant provides medical physics consulting including clinical radiation therapy, commissioning, regulatory and educational services. Soon it will offer specialized software for accreditation, online continuing education and training, as well as radiation safety for medical physicists and radiation oncology physicians.
“Technology is the driving force behind improvements, not only in efficiency, but also quality in many industries. As part of our commitment to improving the efficiency of work and quality of care that our clients provide, software is paramount,” says Ben Ramsay, Director of Operations and Technology Applications at Versant.
“This is why we are developing software that will help not only improve how cost effective our clients can be, but also improve their ability to focus on what’s important, rather than inefficient intermediate tasks.”
Dade Moeller Health Group separated from Dade Moeller & Associates in a management buyout, leading to the creation of Versant. DMHG was originally founded in 2013 under the leadership of Bill Kennedy to meet the needs of medical clients through radiation protection, medical physics and regulatory services. Physics Services Integrated – a full service medical physics group located in Buffalo, New York – later joined DMHG to expand their service lines. Brent Murphy joined and led DMHG as President from January 2014 until September 2015.
