becoming a leading health care provider, assisting customers in creating positive health outcomes for our

Today, CAREstream is continuing to build on our strengths with over 70 staff and two strategically located
warehouses to serve customers from coast to coast. Over the years, we have successfully expanded our
product offering, our supplier network and the markets we serve. We were proud to meet the rigorous
standards of becoming ISO: 9001 and ISO: 13485 certified.

over 350% in the last 5 years. We have been successful in securing contracts for several Group Purchasing
Organizations, many Provincial and Regional Health Authorities as well as being named the Vendor of Record

Tracheostomy supplies. Today, Medpro has grown to include 10 offices throughout British Columbia and
Ontario. Both companies continue to look for new and innovative products that will meet the changing needs
