Nightingale Medical Supplies Acquires McKin Health Care Specialties

April 23, 2021 – Vancouver, BC

Nightingale Medical Supplies Ltd. (, a privately-held Vancouver-based Canadian Medical Supplier and Distribution company, has acquired the assets of McKin Health Care Specialties Ltd. This acquisition bolsters Nightingale Medical Supplies’ business in the specialty health care market in Canada and expands its range with the addition of an Eastern based Distribution centre.

McKin Health Care Specialties was founded in 1989, and is a distributor of Medical Nutrition supplements, thickeners, Enteral, IV, Respiratory, Urology as well as Medical/Surgical post-op and critical care supplies. The company is headquartered in Vaughn, Ontario and will be relocating to Oshawa after the acquisition. Where it will continue to operate under the McKin Healthcare Specialties name.

“McKin Health Care Specialties has a strong history of providing solutions to hospitals and LTC facilities across the country, two markets that we have been seeking to increase our presence in.  Nightingale Medical Supplies is excited to expand our reach through this acquisition and believes that McKin Health Care Specialties’ products are a perfect complement to our existing products portfolio,” said Michael Arab, President of Nightingale Medical Supplies.

Nightingale Medical Supplies has grown considerably in the past 10 years, in part through acquisitions but also from organic growth and the distribution of new product lines.  Nightingale Medical Supplies is a Pacific Surgical company, which operates seven integrated companies in the healthcare industry across Canada.

“Nightingale Medical Supplies’ acquisition of McKin Health Care Specialties supports our objective for continued growth within the specialty medical products market in Canada,” said Michael Fish, President of Pacific Surgical. “Alison and her team at McKin have built a great company with solid product lines and an excellent reputation; we are excited to take McKin Health Care Specialties to the next level and will work closely with its partners and customers to make the transition a success”.
