Mission Statement – We provide communications and education forums to present a broad selection of opportunities for member companies to see, hear and interact with leaders from the Federal Health System (e.g. Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, Indian Health Service, Public Health Service and Coast Guard) in an environment that fosters cooperation and the sharing of ideas for the betterment of both the member companies and these Federal agencies.
- AMSUS created the Sustaining Member (SM) Section in 1953 to bring together private healthcare industry representatives with key Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, and U.S. Public Health Service decision makers.
- The SM section is made up of some of America’s finest companies that provide medical and scientific products and services to federal healthcare agencies.
- The SM section is the only permanent organization to provide an ongoing forum for federal healthcare industries and agencies and is the company’s link to the broad and often fragmented federal marketplace.
- The SM section is guided by a strong code of ethics and members enjoy a unique, collegial environment in which they discuss the current issues and business practices of the federal healthcare customers.
