In November 1976, Mrs. Verna Miller, a qualified nursing professional, started business under the name Armac Limited on a part time basis. The company distributed medical equipment and supplies. Full time operations began in 1979 with a staff of two persons.
Re-organization and expansion of the company in 1981 resulted in a name change to Miller Surgical Supplies and Equipment Limited. Mr. Barton ‘Dusty” Miller joined his wife in 1985 and together they carved a place for the company on the Jamaican landscape. The company became a household name providing a complete range of Medical Supplies.
In November 1986, when Jamaica Oxygen and Acetylene decided to divest its Medical and Welding Equipment Division, Miller Surgical acquired these two operations and expanded to offer a full and extended maintenance service to hospitals and clinics island wide.
In October 2012, saw a changing of the guard, the closing of one era and the opening of another. Retaining the name but now operating under new management, the company continued to offer the current range of products. With the team of hard working and dedicated staff, the smooth transition was made and the product line expanded to include rehabilitation supplies.
We are suppliers of medical and surgical products such as: Orthopedic Supplies, Training Aids, O.T.C Pharmaceuticals, Medical Supplies & Equipment, Hospital & Physician Supplies, Medical Oxygen & Respiratory Products, Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy and Home Care Products.
During the week of May 25-29, Mano a Mano received permission to fly PPE, medical supplies, and equipment to support hospitals and organizations in need in the department of Beni, Bolivia. We made 3 flights from Cochabamba to Beni during the week. Beni has the second-most confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Bolivia, and it has put a heavy strain on their local healthcare systems. Having adequate supplies has been a challenge for healthcare organizations throughout the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are happy to help provide supplies throughout Bolivia, which we have been doing for 25 years.
Last Monday’s flight was our first flight since March; the quarantine in Bolivia has strict guidelines, and most of our programs and daily work have been put on hold during this time. We had to receive government permission for our staff and volunteers to leave their homes to distribute medical supplies from our warehouses in Cochabamba early on in the quarantine in March, and the flights this week were approved specifically to distribute supplies for COVID-19 support (on June 1, the quarantine has started to be loosened). Having a plane available allows us to reach communities like these in Beni in an hour; driving from Cochabamba to Beni would be an 18+ hour drive each way, and many of the roads aren’t even accessible during this time of year. Thank you to the many people involved that make this work possible!
