Meet Dana Tippe and David Stokes, with over 20 employees and 2 locations to serve you in Cranbrook and Castlegar, together they are the owners of MEDICHAIR Kootenay & Boundary.
MEDIchair has been in Cranbrook for over twenty years and David and Dana have been running the business since 2007, previous to that they were both employed with Forte Steele Heritage Town. Dana also worked in accounting in Cranbrook for over 20 years and David was Manager of Visitors Services at the Bouchard Gardens in Victoria.
For Dana and David owning a business like MEDIChair was an easy choice, it was about helping others in the community be able to live life in the best way possible. David and Dana love Cranbrook and the lifestyle that living in the Kootenay’s gives to them, their staff, and their family.
If you ask Dana and David what they are especially proud of, they will answer simply with “their staff”. Not only are they incredibly personable and put the client first but they are professionally trained and frequently updating their skills in workshops seminars and classes. And it shows, they make it their business to provide you with the latest up to date medical equipment, continually striving to make your experience pleasant, informative, comfortable and worry free. And making sure their staff is the best of the best is part of that. Dana and David are also very proud of their home assessment, delivery and set up services. They know that their clients cannot always get to the store and making sure they or their staff can get to their clients is incredibly important to them.
Recently Dana was asked for a photo of her staff from one of their famous staff parties. “What’s that?” She answered with a huge teasing smile on her face. “We don’t have any fun here!”
