The basis of H.O.M.E’s philosophy is the unique CARES approach that governs ALL aspects of the business. It is this approach that sets H.O.M.E. a part from others in terms of reputation for service and quality. It is a holistic, innovate position that is encompassed of five central tenants:
A Team of Medical Professionals

Our caring and qualified staff of over 20 professionals includes Respiratory Therapists, RN’s, HME Consultants, Certified Mastectomy Fitters and Certified Orthopedic Bracing Fitters. Our staff members have an average of 25 years of experience and participate in continuing education each year to stay on top of the latest advances in the health care world.
