After graduating from Wesleyan in 2008, Troy Anstine was looking to get into the medical arena and took a job with Omaha Healthcare Company. A few years later, he ran into Ed DeLashmutt and Mick Hall of Midwest Respiratory & Rehab and was offered a job with them, which he gladly accepted. Midwest Respiratory & Rehab provides wellness solutions to the communities they serve in the form of state of the art treatment options, education and products. They provide respiratory equipment including nebulizers, CPAP/BiPAP therapy, oxygen, and home ventilators. Their rehab side offers solutions ranging from anything to do with seating and positioning, manual wheelchairs, and they even work with the most complex of power chairs and also do home modifications for the mobility impaired.
