HME – which began as a small home-medical equipment rental company in Vancouver – has grown over the last two decades to become one of the largest, independent and full-service home-medical equipment providers in British Columbia.
The company’s diverse product range includes stairlifts, hospital beds, wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, scooters, bathroom safety equipment and many other home medical equipment products.
The new store in Victoria marks HME’s first expansion outside of its 15,000 sq. ft. head office in Richmond, B.C. To become better integrated in Vancouver Island’s vibrant business scene, HME has enthusiastically joined the Victoria Chamber of Commerce.
The company also continues to strongly support the ALS Society of B.C.
“We’ve received extremely positive feedback from our Vancouver Island clients since HME opened its Victoria location,” said Billie Doyle, equipment loan coordinator with the ALS Society.
“Clients seeking assistive devices have taken special note of the increase in service and support provided by HME.”
HME Mobility & Accessibility also works with occupational therapists, physical therapists and physicians across Vancouver Island, notably specializing in complex Rehab seating and mobility products.
“For my patients speed of service, as well as, budget are extremely important and HME – with their large inventory and quick response – have exceed my client’s expectations,” said Fran, an occupational therapist based in Duncan.
“HME very quickly became a strong member of our interdisciplinary team, their experienced and knowledgeable staff proved themselves to be exceptionally capable in helping us to provide the most appropriate mobility devices for our clients.”
HME also is Western Canada’s largest dealer of Bruno stairlifts, with installation and service done in-house by fully-trained, professional installers.
Within weeks of launching its new store in Victoria, the company already has installed more than 10 lifts – including straight, curved and vertical platform – in the local area.
Further details are available through the company’s website – www.victoriastairlifts.com – and plans are in the works to become Vancouver Island’s largest dealer of stairlifts.
HME’s tremendous growth over the past 20 years is attributable primarily to the company’s long-standing dedication to quality, combined with knowledgeable staff and timely service.
Both management and staff are excited to be growing HME’s business in Victoria — and on Vancouver Island — and look forward to serving local residents for many years to come.
B.C.-owned and active in community affairs, HME is a proud member of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce – and in 2013 received the Chamber’s Business Excellence Award.
