Emaline's Home Medical Equipment, LLC was founded in 1989 by Emaline Hopson who was an experienced respiratory therapist and licensed practical nurse.

Emaline's goal was to select and provide the most appropriate home medical equipment so the patient feels comfortable and safe. "The patient should always feel there is no place like home to feel better." -Emaline Hopson.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care at the lowest and most cost-effective price to the community.
