Hart Medical Equipment, which has several outlets in metro Detroit and northern Michigan, has acquired McLaren Home Medical Equipment, formerly known as VitalCare in Cheboygan, Gaylord, and Petoskey in northern Michigan. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The move furthers Hart’s strategic plan to expand geographic coverage, while leveraging additional scale for the benefit of its partners, referrals, and customers, according to the company.
“Hart concentrates on patient outcomes, integrative technologies, timely delivery, and customer satisfaction, which has helped build trust within our communities,” says Allen Hunt, president of Hart. “We look forward to bringing Hart’s focus on continuity of care, reduced readmissions, and long-term patient outcomes to the northern Michigan community.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Hart implemented TeleHart, a live-streaming training service to educate customers remotely on CPAP/BiPAP, oxygen, glucometers, and nebulizers from the safety of their homes. The company says it expects to bring this service to northern Michigan as a result of the acquisition.
In addition, Hart offers customers products such as ventilators, cough assists, percussive vests, speech generating devices, diabetic continuous glucose monitors (CGM), insulin pumps, as well as the ability to order medical supplies and shop on its e-commerce website.
