Pacific Pulmonary Services (PPS) was founded in 1978 in Bakersfield, California, as "Med-Mart", a full-service durable medical equipment (DME) company serving the Central Valley of California. In 1993, Braden Partners acquired Med-Mart. In 1996, the business was renamed Pacific Pulmonary Services and refocused to concentrate on home oxygen and respiratory medications equipment and services. This set the stage for the rapid growth of the company. In 2005, PPS expanded it's respiratory services to include sleep therapy equipment and services.
Today, PPS employs over 1000 associates. We serve communities from more than 100 local care centers across the United States. You'll find PPS in 19 states - California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Utah, Idaho, New Jersey, and Kentucky. In addition to the local care centers, PPS operates a customer care center in Lexington, Kentucky; a centralized sleep therapy Service Center (called Peak Sleep) in Bakersfield, California; a nebulized medication pharmacy in Bakersfield, California; Billing and Reimbursement offices in Brentwood, California, Bakersfield, California, Tempe, Arizona and Omaha, Nebraska; and our corporate office in Novato, California.
We are continuing to grow. Our physicians continue to send more of their patients to PPS because they know they can count on us to take great care of their patients. In addition, PPS is acquiring small DME companies. – less
