A Message from Our CEO
I founded Wave Healthcare in the fall of 2007 with one primary focus, to improve healthcare for the children of Texas. As a board-certified Respiratory Therapist and Licensed Respiratory Care Practitioner, I wanted to use my professional experience to determine whether the care and services I was providing to patients were helping to improve their quality of life over the long term.
In addition to my commitment to improving the healthcare of children through the services Wave provides, I also made a commitment to their families and the caregivers who attend to their special needs. Families and caregivers are as much a part of our service as the children Wave serves.
This brings us to Sail Healthcare. As our Wave patients grew up, I realized that the adult community needs a ‘Wave’; a patient-centric specialist respiratory company with the same commitment to improving healthcare to serve both the Wave patients in their adulthood and the adult community at large.
The needs of adults differ from children, and to deliver the quality of care that I believe is essential, simply expanding Wave into a one-size-fits-all company wasn’t appropriate. So I founded Sail, a company focusing on the specific respiratory needs of adults, with therapists and staff specifically trained to deliver the standard of care Wave is renowned for to the adult population.
I am committed to improving patient care through technology, and the education of parents and caregivers in the use of that technology. Every patient may have different medical needs and every family’s different concerns, so creating feasible solutions to problems that can arise are an integral part of what we do every day.
Over the past two decades, I have established solid relationships in the respiratory care community and am grateful to serve our patients throughout Texas.
Matt Ford – COO
My background and how I came about the healthcare industry is rather varied. After completing my postgraduate studies in mining engineering and finance, I immigrated to the United States from the United Kingdom in 1997. After a period in investment banking, I transitioned into the healthcare arena. And in 2001, I developed a successful senior care company. After several years, an opportunity arose to return to the mining industry by way of developing an exploration asset in Alaska. After successfully advancing this asset, the entity was successfully sold to a mine development company.
Which brings me back to healthcare – For the last decade, I have been closely associated with Rodney Gray as a consultant for Wave Healthcare, LLC, which is an exclusively pediatric respiratory durable medical equipment company. I have witnessed the impact of Wave Healthcare’s mission of “Improving Healthcare for Child” first hand and how it has positively impacted the lives of so many children.
As pediatric patients “aged out” of Wave Healthcare’s services, we quickly heard from caregivers and families alike that there was a need for Wave Healthcare’s successful level of respiratory services but for adults. As we had an opportunity to fulfill that need, Sail Healthcare was founded.
With expert hospital-to-home education services, adult clinical respiratory support, as well as innovative medical equipment applications, we intend to positively impact the lives of many adults through Sail healthcare and our mirrored mission of “Improving Healthcare for Adults.”
