MIDDLEBURY, Conn. – J&L Medical Services has sold to Lincare, it was announced Sept. 4.

J&L Medical, a provider of home respiratory and sleep therapy equipment and supplies, serves patients from seven locations throughout Connecticut and southwestern Massachusetts. The company, named “Best Home Respiratory Provider” by HME News in 2007, was founded by John Loyer and Lynn Tata Plummer in 2003.

“I am very proud to have worked with the best team who share a common goal: delivering equipment and services in a caring, competent and professional manner,” said Loyer, CEO, in a press release.

J&L Medical was in the news in 2016, when it agreed to pay $600,000 to settle allegations that it violated state and federal regulations by using unlicensed technicians to set up CPAP and Bi-level machines—a common practice in the industry, Loyer said at the time.

Terms of the deal between J&L Medical and Lincare were not disclosed, but Lincare will maintain J&L Medical’s current locations and most of its staff, according to the release.

Paragon Ventures served as an adviser to J&L Medical.
