Medical supply company relocates in north Bibb County

M.R.S. Homecare Inc. -- a medical supplies company -- is relocating to a new location on Northside Drive in north Bibb County.

The store is moving to 3780 Northside Drive near Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard just a few blocks from its current location at 4010 Northside Drive at Forest Hill Road. It is expected to open July 19, said manager Linton Holleman.

“The space we’re moving into is a little bit larger,” he said. “The location is the primary reason for the change. It’s next to OrthoGeorgia and across from the Wellness Center.”

M.R.S. Homecare has been in the Macon area for about 25 years, he said.

The store has three employees including Holleman, but he expects that number will increase.

“We should go up to five within the next year or so,” he said.

Products the company sells or rents includes wheelchairs, hospital beds, oxygen supplies and walkers. The company works with a number of insurance companies and Medicare and Medicaid.
