CLEVELAND, Ohio (July 2, 2018)—Compass Health announced that it has entered into a preferred vendor partnership with NDC Homecare, a regional distributor to HME dealers located in the Midwest (Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma).
The partnership will provide HME dealers with next-day delivery, lower freight minimums and will-call service, which historically have not been offered due to the dealer’s location relative to Compass Health’s distribution centers, according to the company. With the partnership, NDC customers will now have access to a broader range of Compass Health products they have requested (mobility, bath safety, personal care, patient room, pressure prevention, respiratory, CPAP and electrotherapy), all housed at NDC Homecare’s distribution facilities in both Conway, Arkansas, and Kansas City, Kansas, and in turn, get the level of service they expect.
“We are pleased to be partnering with NDC Homecare. We have been exploring ways to improve our level of service to HME dealers that are not strategically located near one of our distribution centers,” said Compass Health’s senior vice president of HME Gregory Zenko. “This partnership is a win-win for all—Compass Health, NDC Homecare and the smaller HME dealer who historically couldn’t meet the freight minimum required for next-day delivery because of location.”
“This is an exciting program for all of us at NDC Homecare,” said Doug Harper, president of NDC Homecare. “We are privileged to have this opportunity to partner with Compass Health.”
Compass Health chose to partner with NDC Homecare because of their strong reputation for providing focused service to local market needs, according to the company. NDC Homecare has evolved from the strategic combination of companies known for their logistics expertise, such as Dedicated Distribution, Preferred Medical and Healthcare Supply Solutions.
