SUWANEE, Ga. – UroMed, a provider of urological, incontinence and other disposable medical supplies, will close on July 8, according to a letter to its customers.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause; however, over the next few weeks UroMed will be working diligently to ensure a seamless transition of care to another provider of your choice in accordance with your plan’s network,” reads the letter, signed by Ryan Schorr, vice president and general manager.

UroMed was bought by AssuraMed in 2014. AssuraMed already owned Edgepark Medical, Invacare Supply Group and Independence Medical.

Cardinal Health, which owned AssuraMed, eventually combined the businesses under Cardinal Health at-Home, but kept the Edgepark and UroMed names for its business-to-consumer channel and the Independence name for its business-to-business channel.

UroMed, which was founded more than 20 years ago by six people, four of them wheelchair users due to spinal cord injuries, is known for launching an online community called Life After Spinal Cord Injury; and for hosting, along with Sports ‘N Spokes magazine, the Wheels UP! accessible travel contest.
