Home Medical Equipment

As the only exclusively pediatric home medical equipment company in Greater Cincinnati, Home Care Services at Cincinnati Children’s recognizes children are not merely small adults.

Children come in all shapes and sizes, and so should their home medical equipment. Our medical equipment and supplies are made expressly for kids. And every member of our staff is a pediatric specialist.

When your child is a patient of Home Medical Equipment, a respiratory therapist or customer service representative will set up the initial delivery of supplies and / or equipment. Medical supplies are set up on a monthly reorder basis. When you are ready to arrange future deliveries, please contact us.
