Many people have taken advantage of the Durable Medical Equipment Loan program offered by Florence Community Services Department. Items such as wheelchairs, rolling walkers and other such equipment may be checked out at the Florence Fitness Center, 133 N. Main Street.

This unique program is possible through a partnership with Florence Gardens to loan medical equipment to citizens or visitors for as long as necessary. The program is also supported by Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch.

Access to medical equipment is a common occurrence particularly following surgery and will save users money by not having to purchase the equipment.

Those wishing to use the equipment, should go to the Fitness Center during open hours and follow a simple check-out procedure. Users will sign a waiver before the requested equipment is issued. Equipment is also available at the Florence Gardens Clubhouse.

Individuals interested in borrowing medical equipment, may call the Fitness Center at (520) 868-7587 to check on equipment availability.
