A nationally established company, Affirmative Solutions is certified as a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) that is dedicated to meeting the needs of Medical Treatment Facilities ("MTF") with a widely diverse range of quality medical and commercial products.  Affirmative Solutions markets, sells and serves as a financial liaison to MTFs operated by the VA and the DOD, as well as, commercial healthcare facilities throughout the United States.

Through the distribution agreement, the MiMedx wound care offering, Epifix®, can now be offered to all the MTFs serviced by Affirmative Solutions, who through its SDVOSB status, is a preferred supplier to all its government accounts. MiMedx currently markets four sizes of Epifix®, and all four sizes are included in the agreement with negotiated pricing established at competitive rates.  

MiMedx Chairman and CEO, Parker H. "Pete" Petit, commented, "This agreement is a significant step in MiMedx offering its products and tissues into the VA and DOD by partnering with a well-established distributor in this space. MiMedx will have access to all of the MTFs served by Affirmative Solutions, including those operated by the VA and DOD, plus select commercial MTFs. A hallmark of Affirmative Solutions is their high quality standards for customer service, and we are very pleased to have a distribution partner that shares our passion for service excellence," added Petit.
