Joerns was formed by the merger of equals between RecoverCare, LLC and Joerns HealthCare, LLC, which closed in May 2014. The merger created an industry-leading manufacturer and rental provider of bed systems, therapeutic support surfaces, safe patient handling equipment, and wound care products, all of which are designed to prevent or treat undesirable outcomes in healthcare settings (including pressure ulcers and patient falls, among others). Joerns serves the entire continuum of healthcare, including national, regional, and local providers in the acute, long-term acute, skilled nursing, and hospice sectors. The company’s offerings are balanced between capital sales and rental services, ensuring that facilities have access to the appropriate equipment for evolving patient needs and fluctuating patient census. Mark Ludwig, former CEO of Joerns HealthCare, leads the combined business.
