KALAMAZOO — Compliance One LLC of Kalamazoo has acquired Rockton, Ill.-based Keyes Life Safety Compliance LLC.
According to a statement, Keyes Life Safety will bolster Compliance One’s educational services to health care clients around the Life Safety Code, a standard for facility design in the health care industry. As well, the acquisition and addition of founder Brad Keyes will help expand Compliance One’s code compliance consulting services beyond the Midwest.
Previously, Keyes was an advisor to the Healthcare Facility Accreditation Program and a former Joint Commission Life Safety surveyor. He brings to Compliance One a 40-year history of providing organizational assessments, management training and extensive coaching for health care industry facility leaders.
“Where Brad was limited in time and resources, he can now utilize Compliance One Group’s team of experts to provide deeper levels of support unseen in the healthcare industry,” Jim Feltch, president and CEO at Compliance One Group, said in a statement. “The partnership of our experts will come together in an educational resource hub that is full of interactive healthcare knowledge to help our clients be better informed to the changing world around them.”
Executives at Compliance One got to know Keyes over the years, “and it became obvious that our working relationship is symbiotic; the work that each of us does supports the others’ and together, we deliver a cohesive package to our clients,” stated Eric Kella, vice president of operations at Compliance One Group.
Compliance One is part of a group of companies tied to Kalamazoo-based construction management firm The CSM Group Inc.
