   Meridian History

Meridian Healthcare Group, Inc. (“Meridian”), a Delaware corporation, was established by its current President and CEO and commenced operations in 2000 and currently provides respiratory care services in over 38 states. Meridian was founded on a commitment to excellence and teamwork that permeates the entire organization.

Meridian is a recognized leader in the respiratory care industry. Having built a national network of clinical programs in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, outpatient clinics, homecare centers, sleep labs and respiratory pharmacies. Meridian has customers from coast to coast that range from independent healthcare providers to national public companies offering a broad array of services.

Growth and demand for Meridian’s services are the result of: (i) program quality and diverse product lines; (ii) rapid growth of the elderly population; (iii) increasing incidence of pulmonary disease; (iv) improved medical technology and (v) growing sophistication of purchasers and providers of healthcare services in seeking alternatives to traditional medical care.

The company intends to expand its operations through (i) programmatic expansion of existing sites; (ii) organic development of programs in current services areas; (iii) development of additional programs with existing corporate clients and (iv) select strategic acquisitions. This strategy will capitalize on the growing demands for the company’s services, the highly fragmented nature of the company’s competitors and enable Meridian to leverage its existing client base.
