History

Geriatric Medical's roots back to 1945, when Jack Siegal founded Bo-Peep Diaper Service, a successful diaper delivery business catering to the needs of a generation of “baby boomers.” With his dedication to good prices, dependable service, and respect for customers and employees alike, Jack established the core values his son, grandsons and other family members carry forward as they lead the company today.

Jack knew that you had to be ready to adapt to stay competitive. When the demand for cloth diapers dwindled in the 1970's, he applied his expertise with home delivery to enter the growing market for medical supplies. In the same way, today's Geriatric Medical continues to change with the times, embracing new technology as the foundation of our responsive customer service and efficient operations. But Geriatric Medical is as much about people and products as it is about technology.

Today, Geriatric Medical is looking to be a pioneer in the wholesale medical supply space, working with state of the art, innovative technology to provide the best ordering, inventory, and product supply systems to support our ever growing customer base. We realize that our customer’s top priority is the care of their patients and this shouldn’t be hindered. Our intelligent systems allow our customers to care for patients without having to worry about key business functions (Re write this, but general idea here)

People

Being a locally owned business has its advantages. We are part of the fabric of the community, maintaining relationships with many of the same customers first served by our founder decades ago. We have developed a multicultural and diverse workforce with built-in opportunities for advancement. We have created a decidedly un-corporate work environment with family-friendly policies and excellent benefits. That is why so many of our employees have been with us for five, 10, 15 years or more.

We set out to make our delivery service be the most competitive in the area. To achieve this goal we needed help from our most important asset, our employees, and our employees came through exponentially When we wanted to make our delivery service the most competitive in the area, our employees came through. We were able restructure staff hours to add a second shift that allows us to fill orders long after other suppliers have closed.

We like to say our company is "right-sized," not too small to provide the very best products and delivery options but not too big to nurture flexible decision-makers who can easily provide personalized customer service
