We Deliver More than equipment. We offer the best equipment; The best people; The best service.
We ensure you can provide top of the line equipment which benefits both the patient, the caregiver, and your staff.
When we began our Hospice career in the 1980’s, most people had no idea what Hospice even was. We had trouble finding a DME company that understood the unique needs of Hospice patients and staffs. After owning and operating several Hospices nationally we consulted with other Hospice friends and providers. We found that they were struggling with the same problems. Most DME companies at that time had trouble delivering outside the traditional DME paradigm. So, we decided to start our own. Since then we have provided services exclusively to Hospices nationwide
