NORWOOD, Mass. – Reliable Respiratory has acquired the ventilation business of New Bedford, Mass.–based Enos Home Medical.

“Ventilator care is one of the most intensive and highest acuity lines of home care for patients,” said Eric Mongeau, vice president of sales and marketing at Reliable Respiratory in a press release. “We understand the complexities of caring for these patients, and take great pride in meeting their clinical and personal needs. We are pleased to welcome Enos’ ventilator patients in our family.”

The deal is the latest in a growth spurt for Reliable Respiratory. In June, it acquired Mount Auburn Hospital DME in Cambridge, Mass., and in August, it launched Integrate Vent Solutions to serve as the exclusive New England distributor of the VOCSN, a portable device that combines a ventilator, oxygen concentrator, cough assist, suction and nebulizer into one unified system.

The deal will allow Enos to focus on its core services, including hospice and nursing services.

“Our patients’ best interests are always a driving factor in our business decisions,” said CEO Jon Enos, in a press release. “And, it is with great confidence and assurance that we have selected Reliable Respiratory to care for our ventilation patients moving forward. We know they will receive the latest technology and the highest quality care. It also feels good to know our vent patients are going from one-family owned company to another.” 

Reliable Respiratory started in 1991 and has grown from 21 employees and one office to more than 120 employees serving New England from locations in Springfield and Worcester, Mass.; Merrimack, N.H.; White River Junction, Vt.; and South Portland, Maine. Reliable Respiratory offers sleep therapy, ventilation, oxygen, nebulizers and breast pumps.
