Effingham, Illinois: Vantage Outsourcing, the nation’s premier provider of cataract surgery solutions for hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, announces the addition of Tami Wells as Surgical Sales Representative for East Tennessee, Northern Georgia and Western Virginia. Her focus is on equipping community hospitals and surgery centers with the resources to offer complete care to their patients and communities by adding specialty cataract procedures to their service offering.

“I am excited about bringing my focus and experience to a culture-driven organization like Vantage,” noted Wells. “Helping people in local communities access the care they need in an environment they know and trust seems like the ultimate in care.”

Tami brings two decades of experience to Vantage with a strong record of sales performance that enabled her to achieve various awards, including Presidents Club at Ascend Therapeutics, as well as other performance awards from Abbott Nutrition, GlaxoSmithKlein, and Bradley Pharmaceuticals. Wells exceeded expectations on a consistent annual basis by selling a diverse product portfolio to medical providers. Based in East Tennessee, Tami holds a B.S. from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Vantage CEO, Brad Hill, highlights the fact that identifying, attracting, and retaining great talent is core to the company’s success in delivering great experiences for patients, hospitals, surgery centers, and surgeons.

Hill shared: “Being focused on rapidly expanding our national presence, it is critical that we bring on the right people who will enhance our team and who share our passion for delighting the customer. Tami is a passionate professional with strong character and the drive to identify opportunities and create results for our customers.”

Sean O’Donnell, Chief Growth Officer, added: “Vantage is built on a 30-year history of innovation and service. Being a market leader within our unique specialty segment affords us the opportunity to attract high-caliber team members like Tami. As we expand the size and scope of our organization, attracting sales, clinical and operations talent becomes paramount. Fortunately, the culture we foster and impact we make on communities is a big drawing card.”

Founded in 1991, Vantage curates and provides every component required to deliver more than 20,000 cataract procedures a year. The company equips hospitals and surgery centers with the latest cataract surgical equipment, supplies, and resources to deliver specialty care within their community. Many rural organizations don’t have the resources to invest in the technologies required to offer specialty care such as treating cataracts, leaving a gap for their patients. This often results in the people in their community neglecting to have this important procedure or forces them to go outside their own community for care.
