Apria Healthcare offers New Beginnings for patients

January 9, 2019



Apria Healthcare in Jackson, Tennessee is a nationally recognized home medical equipment company that has a name with beautiful meanings. The Apria name was derived from two Latin root words – aperire and apricare – which mean "new beginnings" and "receiving illumination from the sun." While its yellow symbol represents a blossom, it more importantly serves as a reminder of the role its employees play in the lives of patients for whom they care.


The yellow blossom also suggests a special significance for the nearly 7,000 health care-focused professionals that help support its products and services within the core focus of its home services. It is a symbol for Apria’s commitment to grow its skills and develop its teams as they blossom into the premier home healthcare company. The blossom also suggests that people are at the center of what Apria does. People are who Apria serves, they are its competitive advantage and they drive Apria to be the best.


In Jackson, Apria offers many different services. This includes oxygen equipment, sleep apnea equipment, negative pressure wound pumps, enteral nutrition services, noninvasive ventilators, wheelchairs, hospital beds, and other related home medical equipment needs.


Apria’s local branch is able to relate to customers throughout all of West Tennessee. It helps patients daily through nutrition services, sleep apnea, pulmonary issues, or wound healing. It is constantly improving the quality of life for patients in their homes.


Through Apria’s products and services, and a nationwide network of more than 375 locations throughout the continental United States and Hawaii, it provides a new beginning for more than 1.8 million patients annually.
