Aeroflow Healthcare announced the acquisition of Wheelock Home Medical's continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) resupply program.

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Aeroflow Healthcare, a leading durable medical equipment (DME) provider

and Inc. 5000 fastest growing company, today announced the acquisition of Wheelock Home Medical's continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) resupply program. This line of business ensures much-needed medical devices are replaced regularly to fully adhere to patients' sleep apnea treatment.

Over time, CPAP supplies can deteriorate as oil from patients' skin can cause CPAP masks and other parts to break down, allowing air to leak. As a result, patients are unable to receive their prescribed air pressure for effective treatment and need replacements. In older CPAP supplies, harmful pathogens, mold, and allergens can collect, making regular replacements crucial for overall health.

The acquisition of Wheelock Home Medical's program allows CPAP resupply patients in Michigan access to Aeroflow's advanced resupply process, providing patients with new, sanitized equipment based on their individual replacement schedules. Wheelock Home Medical has planned the transition of care for these patients as a function of closing its business.

"By acquiring Wheelock Home Medical's CPAP resupply line, Aeroflow expands its geographic reach and is now better equipped to continue its ongoing mission of improving patients' quality of life," said Andrew Amoth, Corporate Development Associate, Aeroflow Healthcare. "The transition of Wheelock's patient base was executed in a very patient-friendly manner, and Aeroflow will ensure the patients are provided with the service and attention required to support their sleep therapy."

In order to provide more patients with exceptional care, Aeroflow will continue to expand via mergers and acquisitions with a strategy mutually beneficial to Aeroflow and the companies and lines of business it acquires. Most importantly, smaller businesses will receive resources to improve care for future and existing patients.
