ATLANTA, GA | June 9, 2020 — Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows (STP), innovators behind the unique therapeutic pillows provided by hospitals nationwide for surgery patients, has been acquired by ASP Global, experts in direct sourcing, cost management and clinician-led product innovation. Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows was the inventor of the original heart pillow and has consistently provided novel therapeutic products that help aid patients in their recovery. ASP Global is a privately-held company based in Atlanta. STP operations will continue to be based in Dayton, Ohio with a manufacturing presence based in Richmond, Indiana.
ASP is thrilled to acquire Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows as part of the ASP Global portfolio of companies. Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows aligns closely with ASP Global’s values, providing safe, high-value patient-preference items for health systems. ASP Global looks to continue the exceptional growth that STP has experienced over the last 30 years. Shumsky has existing relationships with over 1000 hospitals nationwide and maintains a prominent position with health systems and distributors as the defining provider of therapeutic pillows.
Adam Abraham, an area Vice President with ASP Global, was recently installed as General Manager of Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows by ASP. “I am happy to have the opportunity to contribute my experience to this leading organization,” said Adam. “Shumsky is an innovator that is respected across the healthcare industry and working with them is a privilege. Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows has an exceptional team and we’re thrilled to keep these industry experts on-board.” Adam is an accomplished business manager in healthcare services and has participated in various levels of leadership across several prominent medical device organizations over the last 13 years.
“Designing, manufacturing and distributing medical products directly here in the US has always been important. With the sourcing difficulties for healthcare systems over the last months due to COVID-19, the value of having manufacturing capacity onshore in America is even more apparent,” said William Fallon, Chief Commercial Officer at ASP Global. “ASP is proud to now have Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows as part of the ASP Global family and will continue to support them in their innovation and growth as the premier provider of therapeutic pillow products to health systems.”
Recently, Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows has begun production on a line of COVID Precaution Pillows, in addition to its full portfolio of post-operative pillows and maternity pillows.
