One medical products supplier; many ways to help
Customers in the know reap the benefits of working with a single healthcare supplier for all their medical needs.
OMS is the only Canadian distributor that offers medical equipment, clinical supplies and pharmaceutical products.
In addition to medical products, OMS is also a licensed wholesaler of pharmaceuticals. Through our parent company, Medical Pharmacies Group Limited (MPGL), we provide pharmacy services to hundreds of continuing care operators and their residents across Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. MPGL dispenses medications and provides clinical support, education and technology, as well as special programs and services to retirement, assisted living, long-term care, supportive housing and other congregate care settings.
Through our specialty pharmacy services division, we partner with healthcare providers to manage their patients’ complex specialty medication regimes, supporting their practices with key high-touch services for patient support. MPGL also operates 14 retail pharmacies across Ontario, all of which are located in medical buildings or hospitals, and we maintain strong partnerships with area clinicians.
Unmatched Health Care Service
Ontario Medical Supply (OMS) started as a local, three-person medical supply business in the Ottawa region. In 1974, the Desjardins Healthcare Group (DHG), a regional provider of pharmaceuticals and healthcare products and services founded in the 1920s, expanded with the purchase of OMS.
In 1993, OMS moved its head office, warehousing and distribution facilities to a new location, but after time OMS had significantly outgrown this 12,000 SF facility and in 2007, the company moved into their new 50,000 SF facility, including a 5,000 SF medical products showroom, located at 1100 Algoma Road, Ottawa, where it remains today.
In 2013, Medical Pharmacies Group Limited (MPGL), a leading provider of pharmacy services to the continuing care sector, acquired the Desjardins Healthcare Group, which included a specialty pharmacy providing home infusion therapy, parenteral nutrition, and OMS. The newly merged organization offered the most comprehensive suite of pharmacy services and medical products available in Canada, bringing innovative and cost-effective healthcare solutions to the group’s many clients.
Today OMS continues to operate from its head office in Ottawa, and is growing and expanding its services across Ontario and parts of Quebec.
