Made in the USA

Med Mart was founded in 1992, but our story starts in 1969. Jack Fesman, our to-be founder, started Glendale Pharmacy in Springfield, Ohio after graduating from Ohio State University. He created a whole new pharmacy experience by stocking medical and accessibility equipment on top of the everyday pharmacy products and eventually expanded the operation to 6 locations. Jack sold his first Lift Chair in 1983 and quickly began to transform the medical equipment industry. Throughout the 1980’s he opened 7 distribution centers across the nation and continued his mission to provide the best products and experience to his customers.

Finding the right mattress is the best way to ensure lasting comfort and quality sleep. The right mattress can also make a huge difference when recovering from an injury.
