(We also provide wound dressings, urological, and continence supplies)
Parthenon is a family company with family values. You, the customer, are our highest priority and we take every measure we can to ensure you have an enjoyable experience with us.
There are over 20,000 brick-and-mortar durable medical equipment shops in the United States, and quite a few on-line medical supply stores to note. So why shop at parthenoninc.com? It’s because we make no sacrifices in our service or product and this is demonstrated by our thousands and thousands of satisfied customers and success as a company that has been in business since 1961 and on the web since 1997.
Parthenon began as a small mail order based company with a catalog of ostomy supplies with its early beginnings in Connecticut. Over the years we've had a few location moves and have finally settled in Salt Lake City, UTAH at our present location for over 35 years.
We are unique in that we are a distributor of specialty medical supplies (wound, ostomy, continence, nutritional, foot care, and skin), and also we are a manufacturer of several popular products. Parthenon prints the largest ostomy catalog in the country serving customers in-store, on-line and via catalog. However you choose to buy your medical supplies, we maintain a rock solid commitment to provide superior personalized service and the lowest prices in the country.
Parthenon was created by three pharmacists in 1961 when they developed our first product, Devrom® (internal deodorant). With continued success and a wide network of distribution grew until Parthenon was providing ostomy supplies nationwide. In 2011, Parthenon celebrated 50 successful years serving its customers!
Although focus is on ostomy supplies, Parthenon sells wound care, urologicals, skin care and incontinence products too.
Do you want more focus on customer service? We are 100% about our customers! Our focus is completely on customer service. As a family owned/operated company we owe our success to our customers and recognized that it never would have happened without their complete satisfaction with our products and service.
Would you like to buy your ostomy supplies from a company that can help you make decisions about which product(s) to get? We don’t like to steer you away from the products you love, but when you have a question about an item either we already know the answer or know how to find the answer fast. In addition, we have published the largest ostomy catalog in the country for decades. It is completely focused on ostomy supplies featuring all of the manufacturers such as Coloplast, ConvaTec, Genairex, Hollister, Nu-Hope Labs, Smith & Nephew, Torbot and more! We provide it free every year and also stuff it full of useful information too!
Are you sick of calling to find yourself talking to a namless and heartless customer rep? Would you like a more personalized order experience? This is a tough one for most companies, but believe it or not, we have some customers who specifically request the same person to take their order. If you feel more comfortable placing an order with someone specific at our company, just ask and they will be happy to help you!
Are you concerned about knowing about new products? With 50 over years in the business, we try to be the first to know when a new ostomy appliance or accessory hits the market! Some companies let insurance dictate what products they offer their customers. Not us! We will get you whatever product you want in whatever size you want. Whether it’s brand new or from 20 years ago, if its available, we will exhaust our network of suppliers to get you what you need.
What about low prices? Great service is always a plus, but price is just as if not more important. We publish an ostomy catalog every year with prices listed so you have some stability as you plan your spending. Only in circumstances where manufacturers have increased prices beyond our control are we forced to change our prices before our next publication. Moreover, you will save money everytime you buy from Parthenon. We price our products competitively and in the rare case you find a lower price, just tell us and we will beat that price by 5%! Everytime.
When you buy from Parthenon you can be assured that we will process and ship your order with the greatest attention to detail. We constantly receive feedback praising us for our high customer service standards, efficiency, prices, and personal touch. Also, we will pack your order professionally and ship it promptly by the carrier and service of your choice. In the end, our focus is to give you world-class service in an effort to give you total satisfaction with every purchase.
While we stock some products, our inventory changes daily. It is next to impossible to maintain a stock of all items. Some of the brands we are most familiar with include: Coloplast, ConvaTec, Hollister, Nu-Hope Laboratories, Cymed, Marlen, Torbot, Smith & Nephew, Genariex and Urocare.
Next time you prepare to order your wound care, ostomy, or any specialty medical product consider Parthenon, we’ll gladly prove to you that we are the source for discount medical products. Please call or e-mail us if you don’t see what you’re looking for.
