Southeastern-based durable medical equipment (DME) company Aeroflow Healthcare recently acquired Air-Care Home Health, Inc. of Easley, SC. Aeroflow will now be the primary oxygen supplies and service provider for Air-Care patients, extending their presence in Greenville, Spartanburg, and surrounding areas.
The opportunity for merger manifested as a result of Aeroflow’s strong presence in the Medicare competitive bidding program. “This program has presented us with new opportunities. Because Aeroflow won so many bids, our service to Medicare patients can now go further,” says Josh Hill, Aeroflow Director of Business Development. “Aeroflow will offer Air-Care patients a full-range of DME products including our COPD pathway program, ventilators and negative pressure wound therapy.”
The reason for the acquisition was to expand Aeroflow’s footprint in South Carolina. The HME industry is reeling in the wake of competitive bidding, reimbursement cuts and increased audits while Aeroflow Healthcare continues to grow. While they are recognized as a premier DME and service provider in the Southeast, their patient database continues to grow nationwide. “We are actively looking for more strategic locations, acquisitions and expansion opportunities,” Josh states.
