Veteran-owned Michigan business wins $16M federal contract

A veteran-owned Grand Rapids healthcare business has received a $16 million contract with the federal government.

Alliant Healthcare Products , a medical device maker, has won a five-year contract with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that comes with an immediate $10.9 million order for endoscopes used in surgical procedures for veterans.

Grand Rapids-based Alliant will supply the medical technology for nine Veteran Administration hospitals in the Midwest. The equipment lets hospitals integrate endoscopes used for high definition video, ultrasonic imaging, and 3D surgical images on a single system throughout the entire hospital.
