WESTERN MEDICAL CONSULTING & SUPPLIES
The company got its start when Scott Rein, the founder and president, agreed to develop and manage the urgent orthopedic program for the United States Olympic Committee and the U.S. athletes at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and Rein’s company was appointed “Official Provider of Emergency Services.” This followed Rein co-founding and managing one of the most successful outpatient surgery center companies in the U.S. with more than 400 physician partners and more than $100m in annual revenue.
Following the 2008 Olympics, Rein founded Western Medical (People’s Republic of China) collaborating with Chinese public and private hospitals and clinics and establishing international specialty care departments in the areas of sports medicine, spine, pain management and reproductive medicine. Partners included leading academic medical centers in Shanghai and Guangzhou and the largest provider of private healthcare in Asia.
Western also supported sports leagues (NFL China, NBA, CBA) and international schools (all the international high schools in China as well as NYU) while consulting with PRC national agencies (such as the China Institute for Sports Science and the China Athletic Association) on race medicine. Rein ran these companies from its offices in Guangzhou and Shanghai where he moved with his family in 2010.
When the coronavirus struck China, Rein was in the U.S. As the virus spread to the U.S., Rein’s former physician partners beseeched him to use his long standing personal contacts to help bring in critically necessary PPE and medical devices (such as ventilators) to healthcare workers.
Rein formed Western Medical Consulting & Supplies, LLC (U.S.) and brought in a team of well-connected and longstanding healthcare executives to run operations and sales on both the East Coast and West Coast of the U.S. while agreeing to work on the China side with a select number of established 3-4 suppliers with whom he has trust and confidence can deliver quality supplies at fair prices to healthcare workers in the U.S.
His latest venture is Western Medical Consulting & Supplies in which Scott leveraged his immense contacts in China (built over more than 13 years including 10 years living and working full time in South China and Shanghai) to ensure that U.S. healthcare workers obtained access to high quality PPE and other medical supplies timely delivered at reasonable costs. Working only with suppliers with whom he has a personal relationship, Western Medical has quickly build a reputation for reliability and ethics in a chaotic environment filled with scam artists and opportunists. 6 weeks after starting the company Western Medical boasts a 100% success record in producing quality product that meets or exceeds all promised standards; has delivered more than 4million units of PPE; and has been vetted and approved as a qualified supplier by several States as well as the largest buying company in the U.S.
Prior to returning to the U.S. in December, Rein managed several companies he founded in China, engaged in advising public and private hospitals and governmental agencies on integrating specialty western care and expertise into the Chinese market.
Through IWS, he collaborated with Parkway Health to develop the largest western specialty surgery department in China; with Foshan Hospital, to develop their international spine surgery department; with Renji Hospital to expand their international medical center to offer western primary care and pain management; and with numerous sports leagues (NBA, NFL, CBA), international High Schools and Universities (NYU Shanghai, WAB, SAS, AISG) and charitable events (More than Aware 5k run, Brawl on the Bund) to provide elite sports medicine care. Rein also has been working with government sports agencies to developing international standards for Race Medicine (while serving as China Ambassador for the International Institute of Race Medicine).
Through the China Healthcare Advisory Group, he and his partners advised U.S. and China healthcare operators, physician groups and investors on their China strategy, including entering and exiting the market.
Through Ruiwen Healthcare, Mr. Rein collaborated with Renji Hospital to develop and open China’s first international IVF department in an academic Hospital. Mr. Rein is known as a health care industry expert and speaks regularly at health care and investment conferences and to university and graduate schools in both the United States and China; has consulted for major U.S. academic hospitals; serves on the Boards of the China Healthcare Executives Group and Shanghai chapter of Entrepreneurs Organization; worked with hundreds of surgeons throughout the United States; and has developed and managed the most successful surgical facilities in the United States under a business model that emphasized patient satisfaction and outstanding health care – and revenues exceeding $100million annually.
In 2007 the United States Olympic Committee (“USOC”) appointed Mr. Rein as the “official provider of surgical services” for the U.S. athletes at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games where he deployed a high level American surgical team in Beijing.
Mr. Rein started his career as an attorney for the then largest law firm in California, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher after graduating with honors from Fordham University School of Law. Subsequently he started his own law firm which he grew to 25 lawyers and a staff of 60.
Scott has been married for 27 years and has 2 sons.
Hope holds an MBA in Finance from Columbia University, a BS in Economics / Marketing from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and a BA in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania. She resides in Wayne, New Jersey with her husband, Evan Haiman, and their four children.
When not working, he is focused on the many activities of his two children and traveling, which interestingly enough, always seems to have great golf courses nearby!
