The SCOOTER Store Creates Home Care Equipment Division
NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The SCOOTER Store, the nation's largest provider of power mobility products and services, has announced the creation of a new internal division focusing on Home Care equipment, accessories and related services to complement its traditional power mobility business.
The new Home Care equipment division will be based in New Braunfels, Texas, and operate out of the national headquarters location of The SCOOTER Store. It will leverage the company's significant investments in infrastructure, systems, processes, customer intake, compliance management, revenue cycle management, and national distribution and service capabilities to provide Home Care items efficiently and cost-effectively to new and existing customers.
The division will be launched in a multi-phase approach. Initially, it will focus on targeted markets with a select portfolio of Home Care equipment items. It will eventually expand into the full national footprint of The SCOOTER Store and offer a wide range of Home Care items. The division's growth is expected to occur organically and through strategic relationships with fully-licensed and accredited partners. Those relationships will help the division fulfill demand for Home Care equipment products and related services, as needed.
The SCOOTER Store has named Chris Bailey as Vice President over the new division. A Licensed Vocational Nurse, Bailey joined the company in 1999 and has held VP-level leadership positions since 2006.
The creation of the Home Care equipment division is a natural progression for the company, building on its historical efforts and experiences. It also formalizes a team that has been operating for many months, building a business plan, negotiating third-party relationships, and providing manual wheelchairs, walkers, patient lifts, nebulizers, hospital beds, support surfaces and accessories in targeted markets for insurance reimbursement.
