Our History

In May of 1992, our founders Ray and Linda Garber started Life Support Systems in the garage of their home on 1105 Portland Dr. in Trophy Club, Texas. Prior to this, Mr. Garber was responsible for opening locations and startups for many other companies across the united states including:

  • Rayco (Albuquerque) – Hospital Sales
  • Reilly Medical (Tucson) – Hospital Sales
  • U.S. Medical (Denver) – Respiratory Equipment
  • Medtech (Denver) – Respiratory Equipment
  • Travenol (Denver) – Respiratory Equipment
  • CareMark (Little Rock) – Home Infusion
  • Southern Medical (Dallas) – Medical Equipment and Oxygen

Their mission has always been to take care of their patients as if they were a member of the family. Oftentimes, this included doing things beyond our normal scope of service to provide peace to those in our care. They would often sit for hours with lonely individuals, bring food, or just give a smile and a hug to those that needed it. The early days were difficult, each patient was hard-won and the Garber’s were responsible for everything themselves. As more members were added to the team, they started to build a culture of “whatever it takes” as they would routinely begin their day before 5 am and end after 10 pm. The spirit of excellence was instilled in everyone from those days of necessity and we’re now a business with a persistent dedication to the patient’s well-being.
