J & B Medical delivers HME to those in need

Friday, October 19, 2018

NICEVILLE, Fla. – J & B Medical has been pitching in to help those in the Florida Panhandle who have been affected by Hurricane Michael, the third-most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. Kim Wonsick, vice president and compliance officer, told HME News this week that the company was bringing oxygen concentrators, wheelchairs, walkers and other general items to area hospitals per their requests. J & B has given out all of its hospital beds; it has ordered more, but they are already spoken for. “Facilities in our local area are desperately needing hospital beds, but with all the cuts from Medicare in the last few years, not many companies carry them anymore, which is now a problem in our area,” she said. “They supply is limited.” J & B had help from Allen and Shelli Brown and their trailer to deliver equipment and supplies.
