Headquartered in Stoughton, Massachusetts, Medical Specialties Distributors (MSD) was founded in 1984 as a distributor of home infusion therapy products and has become the largest supplier of healthcare products and biomedical equipment rentals to service the home healthcare market. MSD’s unique one-stop-shop business model combines the scale and pricing advantages of a national distribution company while offering its customers an unparalleled amount of value-added services. MSD offers its products and services through a national footprint of six distribution facilities, seven medical equipment and repair centers, and 30 medical equipment rental depots. MSD has over 3,800 active customers throughout the United States and Canada, ranging in size from single site providers to national home healthcare companies, and small to middle-size hospitals.
