Nunn's Home Medical Equipment: 'We take pride in what we do'

 -

There are many around town who still call the company Nunn's Hospital Supplies because that is how people remember it.
The full-line home medical equipment company goes back 67 years to 1942, when late founder Martin J. Nunn started the venture on a whim. As son-in-law Joe Ryan explains it, Nunn operated a funeral parlor at the time and saw an opportunity for medical equipment when he ordered a dozen wheelchairs from Everest & Jennings. The hospital supply company became just one of Nunn's many enterprises taken over by family members, which included a telephone answering service, ambulance service and school bus transport company.
