Donations provide quality durable medical equipment (DME), which might otherwise remain unused, to those in need.
OKDMERP retrieves donated equipment; sanitizes and refurbishes devices returning them to peak performance; works with DME vendors to repair equipment if needed to ensure quality; and reassigns DME to the best matched eligible Oklahoman.
Once submitted, an OKDMERP staff member will contact you to make arrangements for drop off or pick up. (Pick up is limited to central Oklahoma residents.)
OKDMERP accepts walk-in donation every Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The OKDMERP office is located at 3325 N. Lincoln Boulevard, Oklahoma City, OK 73105.
If you have questions, please feel free to call us at 405.523.4810 or 800.257.1705.
On Saturday, April 4, 2015, the staff of ABLE Tech and Oklahoma Durable Medical Equipment Program (OKDMERP) hosted a very successful equipment drive that brought in over $22,000 in used durable medical equipment. Citizens and health-related businesses delivered their gently used medical equipment that they no longer needed to a location near ABLE Tech's office on the OSU campus in Stillwater. This equipment will be refurbished and redistributed to people who really need it.
Linda Jaco, Associate Director for Sponsored Programs, OSU Department of Wellness, commented,
"OSU's Department of Wellness Sponsored Programs would like to thank Stillwater and the surrounding communities for their generous support and donations of equipment to the Durable Medical Equipment Drive which occurred on Saturday, April 4. Oklahoma citizens, unable to afford needed durable medical equipment, will benefit greatly from receiving this refurbished equipment. Please contact the program at (405) 523-4810 or email email@example.com if you would like to make a donation and help us to make an important difference in someone's life!"
Along with the Stillwater drive, a very significant donation came from Providence House (GHM Enterprises, Inc.), a privately-owned skilled nursing care and Alzheimer's facility in Guthrie.
Katie Woodward, OKDMERP Program Manager, said,
"Laura Spencer, from Providence, called us and said they had a room filled with power and manual wheelchairs collecting dust and not being used."
"We jumped on scheduling a pick up that same week. In all, OKDMERP received over $28,000 worth of power and manual wheelchairs from Providence."
