MaitreMedica (researched this town Within the last 5 years and is considering moving here):
"Scranton is WONDERFUL!"
I live in New Jersey and work for a successful Home Medical Equipment business <a href="http://www.MaitreMedical.com">Maitre Medical, Inc.</a> Looking to expand the business the owners researched Scranton and decided to promote business here. As the Director of Sales & Service this became my territory. All I can say is that the people here are a true refreshment to work with. Everyone I have come in contact with has been amazing. The views from the hills into the valleys are incredible, the fall time colors are just spectacular. The snow and ice in the wintertime can be daunting but the beauty of the snow and the warmth inside my customers homes while providing them a quote for their new <a href="http://www.StairLiftProfessionals.com/maitre-medical-stairlifts.aspx">Stairlift</a> and sipping tea helps me realize what a great job I have helping people in an awesome town. There are plenty of sources for us baby boomers to receive the appropriate care we need as we age and begin to retire. Florida was the hotspot to retire for decades, in my opinion Scranton has just moved into first place, I hope to see you here.
