In the early 1980s, community pharmacist John H. "Johnny" Bell owned and operated successful retail pharmacies and home medical equipment businesses in Alabama. While performing consulting services for a local hospital, he recognized that Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) was covered by Medicare as a home therapy. Realizing the advantages of home infusion over hospitalization, he began providing a number of intravenous medications to patients in the local community.
The satisfaction gained from improving the quality of life of the patients in their homes prompted him to form Vital Care Home Parenteral Services in 1986. After receiving repeated requests to become a provider, he established a clinical, marketing, and billing team that became the framework on which Vital Care built its franchise organization. With a new name and legal registration in multiple states, Vital Care Home Infusion Services achieved rapid franchise growth throughout the Southeast.
