Why Use American Hospice Equipment Company?

DME is in the home, with patients and their families every day. It becomes a constant symbol of your hospice care, making it all the more important for the equipment to exemplify the best quality possible. American Hospice enables you to present a single picture to the family. They know your hospice is on the job, caring all the time.

Emergencies don’t just occur Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Our trained professionals are on the job 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’re there when you – and our patients – need us.

At American Hospice, we know your business. We’ve been there too. Because we have years of hospice experience, we can make your company better able to serve your patients. And because the equipment is under your company’s control, expenses stay down-while quality remains high. Insist on the best – your patients deserve no less.



Here’s some of what makes American Hospice Equipment Company different from other DME companies – and a better partner for your hospice.



Caring professionals accommodate both the patient and the patient’s family. Our delivery technicians are first trained in hospice care, then they become equipment specialists. They are on call around the clock, every day of the year to meet patient’s needs.


We offer the best equipment, people and service. It’s as simple as that. It’s the difference between fully electric beds and manual beds or picking up equipment on a Saturday night rather than Monday morning. We believe your patients deserve top quality without outrageous fees.


We enable you to provide exactly what the patient needs at a lower cost than contracting equipment from an outside source. Per diem rates mean you can accurately budget DME costs. Plus, we ensure you can provide top of the line equipment which benefits the patient, the caregiver and your staff.


Trained, caring professional equipment technicians can be an invaluable resource. Our delivery technicians are part of the overall hospice team, and included in the patients plan of care. They are hospice trained first, DME specialists second.


Equipment is part of the plan of care, so the supplier should be part of the team as well. Your hospice name is on every truck so patients and their families see one company providing care. By bringing DME service in-house, both quality and cost are monitored and controlled.


Every patient is unique, requiring special care. Equipment should be just as customized to meet each patient’s individual needs. We serve all types of people in all areas of the country. Hospice isn’t just an urban operation, people in rural areas need care too, and we can cover up to 10,000 square miles or more. There is no one formula; each hospice is different so each DME service is tailored to meet your specific requirements.


From the owners to the technicians, every person with American Hospice is trained in both hospice care and DME. We know what it takes to care for hospice patients and apply that knowledge to equipment services. As a former National DME Company of the Year, we understand equipment services, but more importantly, we understand patient service as well.


Whether coordinating pick-up of oxygen, or tracking equipment maintenance to ensure it’s in top condition, American Hospice is always on the job for you and your patients. We always insist on quality. After all, isn’t that what you should expect.


We know DME is nothing without competent, caring professionals to handle it. You know that, and your patients do as well. Our technicians aren’t just equipment experts; they are hospice experts as well. We make sure of it.

When a technician goes into someone’s home, they don’t merely drop off a piece of equipment and leave. They educate the patient’s family so they understand what they will be dealing with every day. They help them get comfortable with new additions to their household. They also work with the other members of the hospice team to ensure the right equipment is in place and functioning properly. That’s all part of quality service
