Introducing the Mountainside Medical Equipment Team!
At Mountainside Medical Equipment, we enjoy taking the time to get to know our customers, and now, we would like our customers to feel the same. Each week, we will be featuring one of our fantastic employees - who they are, what they do, and what makes working at Mountainside Medical special!
Today, however, we will be giving you a little glimpse into who we are as a whole company, and exactly what we do!
Our Founders - Martin Zarnock Sr. & Martin Zarnock Jr.
In June 2002, Mountainside Medical Equipment was established by former Staff Sergeant in the United States Army, Martin Zarnock Sr., and his son, Martin Zarnock Jr.
After graduating high school in 1968, Marty Sr. was drafted and selected to deploy for basic training with the US Army. He was then deployed to help fight in the Vietnam War.
Marty Sr.'s passion for helping others and treating patients came from his time in the Army, where he was Sergeant in the 82nd Airborne Division. There, he assisted injured soldiers who needed medical attention. After a bomb hit the area where he was stationed, and Marty Sr., survived injuries from metal debris, he was directed to the medical supply tent where he helped those who needed to restock their packs. It was then when he rapidly realized the importance of having high quality medical supplies.
After Marty Sr. was honorably discharged in August 1970, he began to work as a director for a supply company that provided pharmacy services to long-term care nursing homes. Along with a small group of employees, Marty Sr. began to grow the business of medical supplies - which added value to the pharmacy services.
Marty Jr. inherited his father's passion for helping others and providing them with the quality supplies after he graduated from high school. He began working in the warehouse unloading shipments and organizing inventory for his father's business. Together, and with the help of several employees, the company they worked for distributed over 35 medical supplies to various nursing homes in the Central New York Region.
Despite much success and positive relationships with clients formed, Marty Sr. and Marty Jr. were let go from their jobs. It was then that they had an idea to go into business for themselves, and to continue to do their part in the healthcare industry, where they would still provide products to help treat and heal patients on a daily basis.
They immediately hit the ground running. With hard work, determination, and positive attitudes, Marty Sr. and Marty Jr. built the foundation known today as Mountainside Medical Equipment.
Today, Mountainside Medical Equipment is a New York State certified Service Disabled, Veteran-Owned small business, located in Marcy, New York. Mountainside Medical Equipment is a company that strives to keep the family angle. Every employee's goal is to make our customers feel welcomed, respected, and special.
We have seen exponential growth from June 2002, and we still supply a wide variety of medical products to nursing homes, hospitals, healthcare facilities, physicians, veterinary clinics, and government organizations. Our priority is always to supply high quality products to our customers and medical professionals directly, so that they can receive and perform the best care possible.
Due to the hard work of all of our employees, we are able to offer low cost, comprehensive solutions to a global healthcare market. Our expansive product offerings are second, only to exceptional knowledge and dedicated customer support. Our core values of honesty, dependability, and hard work will always remain in tact, keeping our customers and their needs our main focus.
"We owe much appreciation to our community, friends and family for joining us on this tremendous journey, and we strive to continue working with you and that you’ll continue to be a part of our story." - Martin Zarnock Sr., and Martin Zarnock Jr.
