History And Mission
Bioseal was founded by hospital people to serve the needs of hospital people. Going back to 1988, our founder Bill Runion spotted the inefficiencies in many Central Sterile Departments manually sterilized and preparing odd items for the Operating Room. Relaying on his knowledge of these departments working as a Sterile Processing Manager and the regulatory environment, he created the initial concept for the company offerings many of which are still in use today. The "Bioseal" name was created to signify the advantages of our unique variety of products provided in sterilized, individual packages.
Today, as our operations and reach has evolved, Bioseal's mission is to assist Healthcare providers lower costs and reduce patient risk. We are driven to assist Sterile Processing Departments and Operating Rooms in meeting the dynamic needs of their patients. We listen to our customers and built quality into each product with many of our best selling products a result of direct customer input. Overall, this combination of innovation and focus enables us to assist healthcare providers reduce labor and provide the highest level of service for internal teams.

William L. Runion, CEO and President
Mr. Runion's career started modestly at Anaheim Memorial Hospital in the summer of 1976 pushing wheelchairs, managing supplies, and assisting nurses. He soon found an opportunity in the Sterile Processing Department and was later promoted to Technical Director of Central Supply & Sterile Processing. Following his entrepreneurial spirit, he transferred his working knowledge gained in these critical departments to business and became General Manager for hospital supplier Stan Pak. There, Bill learned the intricacies of hospital procurement and gained valuable knowledge of the FDA's device manufacturing requirements. As a result of his work ethic and determination, he was promoted to President and served on the Board of Directors for their parent company, Home Med Services. As Home Med Services made plans to relocate to Texas, the idea behind Bioseal was conceived over a card game fueled by Bill's entrepreneurial roots, industry contacts, and fervent desire to stay in beautiful Southern California. Bioseal was officially started in 1988 and has evolved into a multi-million company with over 100 employees committed to serving healthcare providers around the world.
