About Us

Welcome to Athome.medline.com, a convenient way for you to order common everyday medical and personal care items.

Serving the continuum of care from healthcare system to end user.

Medline is the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies uniquely positioned to provide products, education and support across the continuum of care. Our ability to bring best practices from one care setting to another — from large healthcare systems and independent physician practices to home health patients and their families, is what sets us apart.

Our team is made up of clinicians, researchers, engineers, financial experts and 1,200 direct sales representatives with outstanding expertise. They know the healthcare business from the bottom up and top down.

Medline is America’s largest provider of medical supplies and solutions, family-led for four generations.

Our roots date back to 1910 when A.L. Mills founded a Chicago garment factory that made aprons for the stock yards. Nuns working as seamstresses at a nearby hospital approached A.L. about making the hospital’s garments, such as surgeon’s gowns and nursing uniforms, so they could spend their time caring for patients.

When A.L.’s son, Irving, took over the garment business in 1930, World War II created an unprecedented demand for medical supplies. He started distributing general medical supplies in addition to the garments, and the Mills Hospital Supply company was born.

Fast forward to today. Medline Industries, Inc. stands as a fourth generation, family-owned company offering over 350,000 medical products and clinical solutions to healthcare facilities around the world. With 14,000 plus employees and more than $8 billion in sales, we are the fastest-growing and hardest working medical supply company today.

We have successfully responded to the changing needs of this highly complex industry. And, we have remained dedicated to delivering the best quality products, services and clinical programs at a value, helping to make healthcare affordable for all.
