Trilogy Ventilators And AVAPS

He has also spent time as a division sales manager for a $250 million dollar company. Prior to that, he was a successful outside sales representative for a regional leader in DME. It is with his extensive sales background that he saw a need for skilled nursing homes to become more efficient in their annual spend and decided to start ACG. He has since successfully helped these facilities slash their oxygen and respiratory bills by approximately 35-50%. Ben has focused on the growth of the company through furthering industry relationships as well as acquisitions.

I have worked with Ben Cohen and Acute Care Gases for a little over a year now. Their service and pricing has been exceptional and they are an excellent vendor-partner for our facilities to work with. I feel confident in recommending them to any other contacts that I have in the industry.

Acute Care Gases is by far the best oxygen provider we have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Their caring, responsive, accommodating and knowledgeable staff have always been there, especially in times of need to help us through all situations. Last but not least, they are extremely honest, which is somewhat of a rarity in this business.
