Downtown El Centro's Central Pharmacy has expanded its home medical supplies.
The business, Central Home Medical, is now a stand-alone at 481 Main St.
Central Home Medical is a joint venture between El Centro resident Jim Luker Jr., a pharmacist technician at Central Pharmacy, and Central Pharmacy owner Jim Birdsong.
"We're like a one-stop place," Luker said.
Customers can purchase their pharmaceutical needs at Central Pharmacy, and purchase the needed equipment to administer it at Central Medical.
"We've expanded to provide quality service to our patients," Luker said.
Central Medical offers home medical equipment for such things as enteral feeding, that is, equipment for feeding people who cannot be fed orally. The business also offers infusion therapy equipment, for administering pain-management medicine or antibiotics at home and wound-care treatments such as specialty beds and wheelchairs. Hand splints and ostomy products, for colostomy patients are available, as are supplies for asthmatics.
