Published: Oct. 2, 2012

LANSING, Mich. - Sparrow has purchased Wildern Durable Supplies, a home medical equipment store in Charlotte, promising to deliver the same quality service residents there have enjoyed for decades.

"Wildern has been a highly respected institution in the Charlotte community for many years," said Darwin Brewster, Sparrow's Executive Director of Community Care. "Our Charlotte-area customers will receive the same treatment and quality service they've always enjoyed. We're looking forward to this new venture and the new opportunities it will bring to our customers."

The purchase means hundreds of Sparrow customers in the Charlotte area will have the added convenience of shopping for home medical equipment right in their own backyards. Those who have used Wildern for years will also be able to continue as customers.

"We plan on keeping the same hours and even the same phone number that Wildern used," added Brewster. "Wildern has always offered great customer service with a personal touch. We plan to continue that tradition. We want this to be a seamless transition for Patients."

Sparrow Medical Supply is located at 201 S. Cochran Ave. in downtown Charlotte.
