DHS has grown over the past decade to become a strong regional distributor and provider of home medical equipment, respiratory therapy products and services, and complex rehabilitation products and services in the western and central PA markets as well as central and northern NJ markets. During the past two years, DHS announced the acquisitions of HomeTown Oxygen, Pittsburgh LLC, Evanko Respiratory, APO2, Progressive Home Medical Equipment and Reliable Medical Equipment, all regional distributors of home medical equipment in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey markets.
