LAKEWOOD, N.J. – AvaCare Medical, an online medical supply store, has acquired Medical Scrubs Collection, an online medical scrubs store.

AvaCare CEO Steven Zeldes and CFO Mark Bakst say they plan to use their “skills in entrepreneurship” to bring the same growth that they’ve experienced at AvaCare to the Howell, N.J.-based Medical Scrubs Collection.

“We see this as an opportunity to pass on our success at AvaCare Medical to Medical Scrubs Collection,” said Zeldes. “Having worked in the healthcare industry for years, this company fits right into our line of expertise. We also know that many customers at AvaCare Medical are caregivers who can benefit from this acquisition.”

Bakst will also serve as the new CEO at Medical Scrubs Collection.

Medical Scrubs Collection opens the door for AvaCare Medical to expand into the nursing home, hospital and assisted living industries.

“(We plan to offer) them the same easy online shopping experience,” he said.

Medical Scrubs Collection has made a name for itself with its quick checkout, easy returns, personal wish lists and true-to-fit sizing guide. It also offers price match guarantees, as well as large discounts.

AvaCare Medical’s acquisition of Medical Scrubs Collection follows the launch of its new and improved website in June.
