Genesys opens fourth health equipment store

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys announces the opening of its fourth health equipment retail outlet store.
This store is located at:

8220 S. Saginaw Street, Suite 1000 in Grand Blanc. Phone number is 810-694-4391. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.

The store offers a full range of durable medical equipment and supplies with a primary focus on respiratory care and sleep disorder needs, including personalized CPAP and BIPAP education by licensed respiratory therapists (CPAP and BIPAP are machines used for sleep apnea). A respiratory therapist is on site at all times during store hours.

"Our therapists work closely with the patient's physician to make sure the patient's sleep disorder needs are met," explains Deb Holman, director of Genesys Health Enterprises. "The therapists fit and refit (sleep apnea) masks, provide education and advice, and help find solutions to improve sleep quality.

"Sleep disorders have a long-term impact on a person's health; Genesys clinicians guide patients on the right path of care as soon as they receive a physician referral. The team also follows up with patients within the first 48 hours after they receive their sleep apnea equipment to make sure they are sleeping well and have no further questions. We also check in with patients one week later, and again in 30 days," Holman reports.

Respiratory therapists at the Genesys Grand Blanc Health Equipment store also work with pediatric patients who have asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia or sleep disorder needs. The Genesys store carries nebulizers specially designed for pediatric patients.

Genesys also provides health equipment and supplies at these three locations:

3909 Beecher Road, Flint (Genesys West Flint Campus)

425 Fenway, Suite C, Fenton

1430 Genesys Parkway, Grand Blanc (inside Genesys Regional Medical Center at Health Park)

Hours for all four stores are: Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All four stores offer a complete line of home medical supplies and rental equipment that includes: walkers, canes, crutches, wheelchairs, hospital beds, blood pressure units, diabetes monitors and supplies, wound care supplies, physical therapy aids, bath benches, ankle and wrist splints, cast protectors for bathing, traction equipment, ostomy supplies, urological supplies, transport chairs and home respiratory items. The stores also provide an oxygen exchange program with same day, walk-in service.

Genesys also offers 24 hour emergency services and free delivery. Staff can answer all of your health equipment need questions and provide detailed instructions for equipment and supply use.
