    “Medline Industries History

    Medline’s history dates back more than a century, to a time when many surgeons still wore their own clothes during surgery and gloves had not yet been introduced to help prevent infection. Our roots date back to 1910, when A.L. Mills moved from Arkansas to Chicago and started Northwestern Garment Factory.

    Today, Medline is the nation’s largest privately held and one of the fastest growing distributors of medical and surgical supplies in the United States, serving hospitals, nursing homes, surgery centers, physician offices, home care dealers, home health agencies, retail outlets and other health care markets. With this rapid growth, we have strengthened our focus on innovation. We now have more than 160 patents globally.”
