Good Sam Selects Capstone HME as Durable Medical Equipment Provider

Good Sam Selects Capstone HME as Durable Medical Equipment Provider

Roanoke-Based Hospice Marks Capstone's First Partnership in the Mid-Atlantic

PR Newswire

TUSCALOOSA, Ala., and ROANOKE, Va., April 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Sam, the only not-for-profit, community-based hospice serving the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas, has selected Capstone HME as its provider of durable medical equipment (DME) for all of Good Sam's hospice and palliative care patients.

Capstone HME began serving Good Sam patients and their families in 2020 and has already won rave reviews, announced Loretta Beemer, Director of Nursing Services. "Our families truly feel that Capstone is an extension of Good Sam," she explained. "The Capstone staff is genuine and kind. They spend extra time educating families on the equipment and do the same for facilities when needed. Working with them on weekends has been a joy."

Its agreement with Good Sam marks Capstone HME's first opportunity to work with not-for-profit hospices in the Mid-Atlantic region, noted Capstone Vice President Daniel Peake. "At Capstone HME, we're committed to being more than a vendor—we're a partner with the not-for-profit hospices with which we're privileged to work. One of the ways we demonstrate that partnership," Peake continued, "is by opening a warehouse directly in the hospice's service area, a DME warehouse dedicated to servicing that provider."

That level of commitment and service has had an immediate impact on everyone involved in a Good Sam hospice admission. "Case managers at local hospital systems have expressed their appreciation for our ability to efficiently get medical equipment into the home because it allows for more streamlined hospital discharges," explained Aaron Housh, Good Sam's CEO. "This is important for patients, families and care managers and Capstone recognizes this."

Peake added, 'We've invested in the Roanoke community by opening our warehouse, by hiring local drivers and technicians, because we are committed to the Good Sam mission 'to affirm life in the midst of illness and grief and, above all, to honor what matters most to each person and family served.' As with all of our DME contracts, as Good Sam grows and expands its services, the infrastructure we have positioned in Roanoke will support that expansion. We look forward to growing alongside Good Sam throughout southwest Virginia."
