Western Maryland Medical Supply Relocates
Western Maryland Home Medical Equipment now has a new name, a new location, and a new partner. Now known as Western Maryland Medical Supply, it has relocated from the Braddock Square Shopping Center to 13513 Winchester Road, next to the Eaton Young Furniture Store. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held recently to announce its new location and to introduce its new partner.
Western Maryland Medial Supply, LLC, is a new venture between the Western Maryland Health System and Equipped for Life, the one-stop shop for home medical equipment and supplies in the tri-state area. This partnership allows Equipped for Life to bring an established business model to the Cumberland market and offer the community expanded services. Western Maryland Medical Supply will now be able to offer retail home medical equipment to consumers, as well as oxygen systems in addition to government contracted medical equipment.
Although the venture is equally owned by Antietam Health Services (Equipped for Life's parent company) and a Western Maryland Health System subsidiary, Antietam Health Services will be the managing partner.
Michael Zampelli, chief operating officer of Antietam Health Services, said that since other regional locations have proven successful, the partnership with the Western Maryland Health System was a natural step. "The Western Maryland Health System liked our business model, not only the home medical equipment, but also the retail," he said.
Mark Ellis, director of Equipped for Life, said this merger will benefit the patient first. "Continuity of care is number one," he said. "Equipped for Life can help get better service to the Cumberland market and offer a larger variety of products. It's good for the public at large."
Together with Western Maryland Medical Supply, Equipped for Life now has more than 15,000 active patients and 7 locations, including all Home Care Pharmacy locations, to serve the public. Because of the merger, patients in the Cumberland area will now be able to purchase products that are available at all other Equipped for Life stores. Products available include scooters, walkers, walking aids, wheelchairs, respiratory equipment, and many other medical supplies.
