Tuesday, November 26, 2019

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J. – PromptCare has expanded into Florida, acquiring Hollywood Medical Supply.

Founded in 1965 in Hollywood, Fla., Hollywood Medical Supply currently provides hi-tech pediatric respiratory services and supplies, and enteral feeding to more than 1,200 patients.

“We are excited to enter the state of Florida through this strategic combination with Hollywood Medical Supply,” said PromptCare CEO Tom Voorhees.  “Bob (Lichtenstein, owner and CEO) has built a company with a care-centric approach and pediatric patient orientation that is well-aligned with PromptCare’s mission and strategy.”

PromptCare provides specialty respiratory and infusion services to pediatric and adult patients across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S. In 2018, the company gained a foothold in the Southeast when it acquired Charlotte, N.C.-based Hometown Oxygen.

Lichtenstein is retiring.

“PromptCare’s commitment to providing the highest levels of patient care made them the perfect partner to continue Hollywood’s 50-year legacy of serving medically fragile patients in south Florida,” he said.
