Our Story

Driven to Innovate for Healthcare

From helping with everyday care challenges to building a better future for your business – Direct Supply is your partner in pushing Healthcare forward.

We’re Inspired by Our Customers’ Passion for Care

Our customers’ commitment to serving seniors is what fuels our passion for developing innovative solutions to the toughest challenges facing the industry. That’s why we’ve served Senior Living and Healthcare environments for more than 35 years – and we’ve only just begun.

Shaping the Future of Care

The entrepreneurial spirit that started Direct Supply as America’s first virtual distributor in 1985 is alive and well as we invest in the future of caring for seniors every day. How? By cultivating and hiring the best and brightest talent to make up our 100% employee-owned company that’s committed to cultural diversity and equal opportunities. By partnering with unique startups and standout universities through our Innovation & Technology Center. And by innovating and aggregating customized solutions designed for a spectrum of care environments. All while staying true to our mission: to improve the lives of America’s seniors.
