Timothy Dent spent over a decade in the orthopedic sales industry. He saw a need in the industry for a smaller, more personal and comprehensive service for doctors’ offices. One fateful Christmas Eve in 2002, when speaking to a physician at a local Surgery Center, an administrator overheard their discussion, and recommended servicing hospitals – from there the scope of the business changed.
Early on Tim and Amy Dent realized the only way to differentiate the business amongst the much larger competition was to define and provide superior customer service. These core concepts represent and guide the company. They defined four separate parts to the business - the accounts, the patients, the vendors and the employees. Each part has written policies and procedures with ongoing conversations on what superior service looks like to them. We support, encourage and educate across the spectrum of our business.
This small business started out of a home office using the family mini-van for deliveries, and then they moved to a larger space in 2006, and finally in June 2013 they moved their administrative and billing offices Calvert County, Maryland with over 6,000 square feet, 2-story building in Prince Frederick, Maryland. In 2008 they opened their first warehouse, and in 2009 the business expanded to North Carolina.
Now Grace Care services five states with multiple warehouses and 35 employees – plus a fleet of company vans!
Grace Care currently services over 75 hospitals, prompt cares/urgent cares, physician offices and surgery centers across multiple states. As the industry changes we have added additional services, including DME billing, custom braces, and a full line of O & P products and services.
This female-owned company has received Facility Accreditation by the Board of Certification/Accreditation (B.O.C.). BOC Facility Accreditation shows patients that we are committed to the highest standards of care, and ensures we understand and comply with all applicable laws and standards required.
