Henry Schein enters supplies market with strategic acquisition of Prism Medical

MELVILLE, N.Y. – Henry Schein Inc., a provider of health care solutions to medical and dental offices, has acquired a majority ownership position in Prism Medical Products, a national provider of home medical supplies with a focus in advanced wound care.  

Founded in 2006, the Elkin, N.C.-based Prism Medical has more than 200 employees and 10 fulfillment centers. For the 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2020, it reported revenues of approximately $52 million. 

“Expanding beyond our core base of office-based physicians and entering the home health market has been a long-standing strategic goal of Henry Schein’s medical business, and with Prism we have the ideal partner with a strong brand and a complementary business model,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein. “This partnership expands Henry Schein Medical’s continuum-of-care delivery model and allows us to move closer and to interact directly with patients. It also strengthens our relationships with the physicians who prescribe home medical supplies.” 

Prism Medical serves a network of nationally affiliated and independently operated wound care clinics, as well as specialist practices and clinics in primary care, ostomy, podiatry, rehabilitation and physical therapy, general and plastic surgery, dermatology, and vascular medicine. 

Prism Medical will operate as a subsidiary of Henry Schein Medical and will be managed separately as an individual division by Chris Cartwright, founder and president of Prism Medical Products.
