DXE Medical, Inc. announces new name

DUBLIN, Ohio – DXE Medical, Inc., a Sarnova company specializing in cardiac products, services and solutions, announced today that it is changing its name to Cardio Partners, Inc. The new name, effective today, is meant to reflect the company's newly expanded cardiac preparedness service offering.

DXE Medical specialized in distributing new and recertified emergency equipment and refurbishment services when Sarnova acquired the company in 2013. Since then, Sarnova has facilitated two more strategic acquisitions that expanded DXE's cardiac care offering to include emergency preparedness consultation, nationwide CPR training services, and proprietary emergency program management services. This new and comprehensive offering has changed the way DXE interacts with and serves its customers, which the company wanted to convey in its new name and brand.

"DXE, and our parent company, Sarnova, have held a vision of delivering a fully integrated cardiac preparedness solution to the marketplace," said Reuben Dickenson, vice president and general manager of Cardio Partners. "Following recent acquisitions, we have fulfilled this vision and believe that rebranding is an important step in this transformation. With our new name, we want customers to quickly understand the breadth of our services and our leadership in the category."
