Why was Handi Medical Supply Founded?

In 1988, Mary Benhardus believed that the Minneapolis/St. Paul marketplace needed a Medical Equipment and Supply company that properly serve its customer.  Mary, a Personal Care Attendant at the time became frustrated in placing orders for her clients when they needed medical supplies or repairs to their medical equipment.  Repairs on items such as power wheelchairs, manual wheelchairs and scooters were many times delayed.  It was not uncommon for Mary to be told that repairs could not be completed the same day and in some instances a week later.  Her clients depended upon their equipment being kept in functional condition in order to remain mobile.  Waiting a week for a repair was not an acceptable response time in Mary’s opinion.  Some of the medical supplies ordered for her clients would not arrive in a timely manner, and these products were necessary for her clients to properly manage their health condition. 

With a dream of serving customer’s properly, and the financial support of her Grandfather Clarence Anderson Young, Handi Medical Supply began distributing medical equipment and supplies in July of 1988.  The guiding mission since the inception of Handi Medical Supply has been and still remains properly serving the customer.
