Since 1978, Bound Tree’s mission has stayed the same: save minutes and lives

Since Bound Tree Medical opened its doors in 1978, its mission has stayed the same.
“As your partner in EMS for over 40 years, we’ve made it our mission to help you save minutes and lives,” said Emily Hoste, account manager for Bound Tree.
David Currier, an entrepreneur, politician and former Emergency Medical Technician, established the small emergency medical supply company in Henniker, New Hampshire. Since its inception, the company continues to work hard to help EMS providers do their job more efficiently.
“With over four decades of experience, we are a partner you can count on to provide you with the right products, services and support,” Hoste said.
Bound Tree offers a full line of emergency medical supplies, equipment and pharmaceuticals from some of the industry’s top healthcare manufacturers.
“We strive to understand your unique needs and provide you with the right products, services and support to best meet those needs,” Hoste said.
Hoste said since the company carries all major products from the leading manufacturers nationwide, it is difficult to assess what products are the most popular at any given point.
“However, we can tell you that the NIO® Intraosseous Device from PerSys Medical, is flying off of our shelves. It is a sterile, disposable, automatic intraosseous device for safe, quick and easy vascular access. No drills, no batteries and no extra parts,” She said. “Additionally, our Curaplex® pre-assembled kits give our customers the ability to respond quickly during various situations. Our active shooter situation kits, Stop the Bleed® kits, IV start kits and airway kits are currently very, very popular.
Hoste said the company offers thousands of prehospital emergency medical supplies and equipment, but it’s the services Bound Tree offers that makes the company unique.
“We offer valuable services to increase efficiency and accuracy, reduce liability and positively impact your bottom line,” she said. “Services such as inventory and asset management, online ordering for controlled substances, and emergency disaster support can save time and reduce overall costs. We also provide best-in-class support. This includes a dedicated account manager and a team of highly-knowledgeable customer service representatives as well as additional educational resources and continuing education through Bound Tree University.”
Hoste said Bound Tree has enjoyed supporting the Ohio EMS Chiefs Association of the past few years.
“We do business with several individuals and departments that attend and support the association. The conference is well attended, and we really enjoy the speakers. Our hope is to continue to support the association and become even more involved the best they see fit,” she said.
Hoste said those interested in doing business with Bound Tree can call the company (800) 533-0523, e-mail them at CustomerService@boundtree.com or peruse items and services online at www.boundtree.com. She also said EMTs who are interested in Continuing Education Units should visit Bound Tree University online at www.boundtree.com/university.
“The site is loaded with articles, videos, webinars, e-Books and other educational resources created with the help of industry-leading organizations and professionals who are passionate about EMS,” she said.
