Rehab Medical has expanded into the Cleveland, Ohio, area, opening a new office offering specialized mobility services.
Rehab Medical announced that Cleveland, Ohio, residents now have access to its specialized mobility services with the company’s recent expansion into the area.
The expansion makes Rehab Medical the largest complex rehab technology (CRT) provider in the state, according to the company. According to the US Census Bureau, nearly 16% of Cleveland residents have a disability. With the move, the company can offer specialized mobility services to those facing mobility challenges.
It is Rehab Medical’s first territory expansion of the year, with additional territory expansions coming to Georgia and Louisiana in May.
“Rehab Medical has a strong presence in the state of Ohio, and this expansion allows us to close the last gap and cover the entire state,” said Kevin Gearheart, Rehab Medical president. “This expansion also exemplifies our intentional focus on culture and internal growth. We promoted key employees to move to Cleveland to continue our focus on service excellence and customer care.”
For more than a decade, Rehab Medical has provided custom mobility solutions designed to provide mobility freedom and independence. The company advocates for its customers to help them obtain equipment through their insurance providers, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies. The company’s goal is to improve the lives of its customers by helping them navigate the complex process of obtaining specialized mobility equipment through their insurance.
Additionally, Rehab Medical can provide its customers with mobility equipment two times faster than the average provider, according to a recent independent study from VGM Mobility, and maintains an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
The company staffs 9 employees at the Cleveland office, including assistive technology professionals (ATP), who are Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA) certified medical professionals and have specific training and experience in rehabilitation wheelchair evaluations. The ATPs will focus on complex conditions and conduct specialized evaluations to mold and shape equipment to suit the individual’s unique needs.
“Now that we are operating in Cleveland, we look forward to serving the great people of Cleveland, Ohio, in our quest to improve lives,” said Rehab Medical Vice President of Sales Keith Hawkins.
