About Us: History of Frontier Home Medical

Frontier Home Medical was established in 1996 as a company to serve the needs of people who required wheelchairs and other medical equipment. The business was started by Smokey Cornelius behind his vast experience with home medical equipment and services.


In the beginning, the major focus of the business was to provide custom wheelchairs. Over time, we have added oxygen, CPAP/BiPAP along with a corresponding supply reorder program, hospital beds, seat lift chairs, incontinence supplies, stair lifts, walking aids, scooters, bath aids, vehicle lifts, and a wide range of other medical equipment.

Delivering Home Medical Supplies for Cozad, McCook and Omaha, Nebraska

Frontier Home Medical was incorporated in 1997 when the first retail store was opened in Cozad. In less than a year, a satelite location was opened in McCook and over the next several years, stores were added in Omaha, Lincoln, Grand Island, Kearney, and North Platte. In 2007, a liquid oxygen trans-filling system was installed to allow for filling of our own portable oxygen tanks. With the launch of our new work order program and the increase in wheelchair repairs, a large storage facility was added in 2012 giving us the ability to keep more equipment on hand to better serve our customers.

Frontier Home Medical stores are positioned to serve people across the state of Nebraska. Our staff is composed of a range of talented individuals which includes professionals in the field of allied health who are committed to improving the quality of life for those in a compromised state of health. Although the company started with one person, it now depends on 60 plus caring individuals to deliver the high quality of care and service that we feel our customers deserve. Quality care is dependent on all employees communicating and working together as a team.


When a family needs our service, we work with physicians and insurances to provide the equipment while ensuring maximum use of benefits allowed. This involves staying current with the constantly changing rules and regulations of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances.


Frontier Home Medical's Commitment

The same commitment and passion to helping others that Smokey had in 1996 is still the major force behind our company today. Frontier Home expands the products we carry and the services we provide so we may assist our customers in continuing to be independent. We firmly believe that we have more than a business relationship with our customers. It is our family helping yours!
