Renewing its commitment to the ongoing improvement of public policy
Ball Ground, GA, October 18, 2019 – In another step to show its commitment to building a stronger and more sustainable home medical equipment community, CAIRE Inc. has become a member of the American Association for Homecare, an advocacy group for health care providers, equipment manufacturers, and community health care organizations. The announcement was made this week by President and CEO Earl Lawson at the global headquarters and Respiratory Center of Excellence in Georgia further signaling the company’s dedication to grow its position as a leader in the HME space along with advocacy. “AAHomecare is the premier organization representing the voice of HMEs all over the U.S. on Capitol Hill and at the state level. Policymakers need to understand the critical issues facing our providers as they serve patients and strive to remain viable despite recent significant cuts in reimbursements,” Lawson said. “At CAIRE we are working every day to support these same providers with the oxygen therapy solutions they can rely on to deliver clinically effective care to their patients, and this step to support AAHomecare and its initiatives is just another way to show we care about our customers in advocating legislation that can positively impact their businesses.” “CAIRE has a legacy in manufacturing a quality portfolio of oxygen therapy equipment, but also in being a longtime friend to the HME community. They have demonstrated their desire to support the success of providers through their business programs, and today as they join the ranks of our corporate partner program,” said Tom Ryan, AAHomecare President and CEO. A leading global manufacturer of oxygen supply equipment for more than 50 years, CAIRE’s portfolio includes portable and stationary oxygen therapy devices and turnkey on-site generation commercial solutions that support home care, hospice, long-term care, hospitals, military, and key industrial applications.
