Caring People, Caring for Your Equipment

Our Mission

As an employee owned organization, it is our mission to deliver more than basic repair and maintenance of clinical equipment. We deliver responsive support, high quality and cost effective service and solutions tailored to our customers needs.


Because we're employee-owned (we cared enough about our employees to make them owners), and because we've chosen to spend our lives in an industry that cares for equipment that cares for your loved ones, we indirectly give our love to your loved ones. 

How do we do that? ... We use our nerd-like talents to make sure hospital/medical equipment is safe and functioning properly.


Working with SPBS, it seems like they really know our hospital & equipment well. It’s like they are a part of our hospital - that’s the kind of relationship we have

35 years of excellence

SPBS was founded as South Plains Biomedical Services in 1979, when Richard Fischenich and a colleague formed a partnership to provide medical equipment and repair services for the region surrounding Lubbock, Texas. Today, SPBS serves over 600 hospitals, clinics, doctors offices, imaging labs and other facilities throughout the United States.

Today, SPBS has become employee owned (ESOP S Corp.) and is strategically directed by CEO, President & Chairman, Jeff Daugherty. We’ve grown steadily.  And along the way, we’ve built a reputation as a trusted partner by providing reliable, accurate service.  We go the extra mile so that you can focus your attention on keeping your patients and your bottom line healthy.  Our technicians maintain rigorous certification standards; most are certified by AAMI (the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation). SPBS is a member of MERA (Medical Equipment Repair Association) and AAMI.
