“With their wide and varied array of healthcare and medical supplies, we are confident that all of our customers will find exactly what they need for any purpose.”

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined in a distribution partnership with Medline, Incorporated, to offer a variety of healthcare supplies to a larger consumer market. Medline's roots date back 100 years ago, when A.L. Mills bought a sewing machine and started making protective garments in his Chicago home under the company name of Northwestern Garment Factory. He was approached by nuns from a local hospital to sew surgical gowns for them. Officially incorporated in 1966, the Mills family continues at the helm of Medline, the largest privately held medical manufacturer and supplier in the USA, with international expansion all over the world. They manufacture and distribute over 125,000 medical and surgical products for both institutional healthcare and independent consumers.
Medline easily dominates the healthcare industry market by holding top-tier market share in more than a dozen major medical categories, and they are the number one supplier of medical gloves, textiles, durable medical equipment, plastic patient utensils, skin care, operating room kits and disposable incontinence products. With their focus on innovation, continuous improvement and differentiation, they own and license hundreds of proprietary products, patents and trademarks. Medline's products are found in almost every hospital in the USA, and for over half of those hospitals, they are a top ten supplier. Their growth has been tremendous over the past 30 years, with consistent increases of 10 percent or more annually, and they have been solely funded internally, without any debt.
Their dedication to design helps improve patient outcomes, such as their newly designed catheter trays that help curb unnecessary catheter use which may help reduce the risk of infection, and their advanced wound care products which feature Educational Packaging™ incorporating a 'two minute course' on each unit, improving care and reducing errors. Just a few of Medline's innovative products manufactured with award-winning processes include the SilverTouch™ lab coat with surface active silver ions for protection from odor-causing bacteria, Aloetouch® gloves, Remedy® skin care, MatriStem®, Puracol® and SilvaSorb® wound care, and the EcoDrape™.
Protecting the environment is also a big priority at Medline and they produce over 500 products that use recycled materials, are highly biodegradable and use renewable resources or more environmentally friendly ingredients. Some of their buildings harvest light from the sun and heat from the earth, while they have continued to reduce fuel use for their transportation fleet, and recycle from the factory floor to the corner office. “We are proud to offer the high quality and innovative healthcare products from Medline to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “With their wide and varied array of healthcare and medical supplies, we are confident that all of our customers will find exactly what they need for any purpose.”
