Attendees and Exhibitors Network During Thursday's Lunch

At this year’s conference, we mixed up our awards program and recognized certain OAMES Gold Star Members who through the immense challenges that the HME industry faces today, have shown incredible leadership and support of the association. These providers are recognized for their stellar participation and above-and-beyond involvement as volunteers and active members attending educational events, serving leadership roles in the state and nationally, working on various projects and industry issues.  Six companies have PERFECT attendance at OAMES 8 meetings the past two years.  Those companies are: Columbus Medical Equipment, Cornerstone Medical Services, Health Aid of Ohio, Medical Service Company, Miller’s Rental & Sales and O.E. Meyer Co.! 

An additional 21 companies have attended 3/4 of the association’s events.  This is a remarkable achievement and OAMES is very proud to recognize the dedicated providers who through their involvement in the association, help lead the Ohio HME community towards a better, more prosperous future!
