One of the best aspects of Crossroads Medical Supply in Corinth is that it’s locally owned and operated, said owner Ronnie Sleeper.
That is a very important factor when it comes to helping people with health challenges achieve comfort at home, Sleeper added.
If people have questions about a piece of equipment, such as a lift chair, home hospital bed or Oxygen supplies, they don’t have to call a 1-800 number in another state. The “great” staff at Crossroads Medical Supply are the same people clients see in the grocery store, at church and community events, Sleeper noted.
With Crossroads Medical Supply, help is just around the corner at 507 S. Fulton Drive in Corinth. And in addition to its Corinth location, Crossroads Medical Supply also has a business in Ripley called Mid-South Medical Supply.
Sleeper works at the Corinth location while his business partner, Joe Morton, is in Ripley.
As a Corinth native and Corinth High School graduate, Sleeper has a deep connection to the community and true concern about the well-being of its residents.
Crossroads Medical Supply offers products and services for people facing health challenges at all stages of life from newborns to 99. The medical supply superstore has a large retail floor space for people to browse the inventory and try out chairs.
The business started nearly 20 years ago, and two years ago merged with a company Sleeper owned called Med-Supply Plus.
The merger allowed Crossroads Medical Supply to become the area’s top company in the field, he said. It has everything a person could need for home healthcare, including a large selection of recliner lift chairs for people who need help getting up. Mattresses, wheelchairs, power scooters, bathroom equipment, walkers, diabetic shoes, access ramps and mastectomy forms and bras are some other products.
The business sells and rents equipment and offers no-interest financing as well as free pick-up and delivery. It also provides Hospice-related products.
A trained mastectomy bra fitter is available at Crossroads Medical Supply to help women who have gone through breast cancer surgery. The business takes great care to provide the women with privacy with a special fitting room.
Sleeper and his staff love serving people, and they understand the personal nature of the home medical supply business. Clients can be confident that Crossroads Medical Supply will respond to their needs in a quick and caring manner, he added.
