Tuesday, February 17, 2015

BRANSON WEST, Mo. – Lakeland Pharmacy will expand the sales of its home respiratory equipment by applying for distribution and pricing agreement certification and pursuing government contracts, the company announced Feb. 17. Many federal agencies, including Veterans Affairs, use DAPA certification as a way of procuring goods and services, knowing the companies with this certification have been thoroughly vetted, according to a press release. “The opportunity to service government accounts opens up significantly more markets throughout the region as our goal continues to be to expand sales of our in-home respirator and oxygen concentrator product line,” stated Jim Parten, home medical director at Lakeland Pharmacy. Lakeland Pharmacy specializes in caring for patients suffering from chronic respiratory failure and thoracic restrictive disease.
