Tuesday, August 29, 2017

ORLANDO, Fla. – AeroCare has acquired First Choice Medical Supply and Kelly’s Medical Equipment & Supply, two DME companies in Illinois, according to the Galesburg Register-Mail. Both companies have a presence in Galesburg, and First Choice also has offices in Peoria and Monmouth. First Choice and Kelly’s Medical serve about 300 oxygen patients in the area, according to the newspaper. First Choice’s office in Monmouth will close Sept. 21, with AeroCare serving those patients from its office in Galesburg, the newspaper reported. First Choice’s office in Galesburg has been consolidated into Kelly’s Medical’s office in the same town, it reported. Kimberly Angotti, a sales rep for AeroCare, told the newspaper that the acquisition has been a “good deal for everybody,” with no one losing jobs. “We’ve had some transitions, people’s own decisions,” she said, “but nobody’s been let go because of it.”
