We couldn’t let our 75th Birthday pass without a celebration…so that is exactly what we’ll be doing all month long! Monroe Wheelchair has come a long way in 75 years and our President/CEO, Doug Westerdahl, has a special message to share in honor of our celebration.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to experience snapshots of Monroe Wheelchair’s history. We’ll go back as far as our founding in late 1941 by two Rochesterian’s, Emanuel Lazerson and Hyman J. Mandell. We opened our doors on 57 Monroe Avenue, under the name Monroe Surgical Supply Co., originally as a physician’s supply house. The very first mention of Monroe in the local newspaper (Democrat and Chronicle) was on October 12, 1941 seeking a Pharmaceutical Salesman.
We look forward to sharing how Monroe Wheelchair has grown and evolved through the last 75 years. A sincere thank you to our customers (past, present, and future) the chance to fulfill our mission of creating better lives. This journey would not have been possible without your trust in our staff, products, and services. Visit Our Website to Learn More.
