Buri staff Jonathan Buri and Michelle Crook, right, will continue to serve out of the Colfax location.

Buri's Medical Equipment in Colfax has sold its assets to Washington-based Bellevue Healthcare. Buri's has served the area for more than 21 years, but owner Angela Buri says it's time to spend more time with her family.

"I want to focus on taking care of my three busy teenagers," she said. "Family comes first."

According to Buri, customers with active rentals through Buri's Medical Equipment will retain access to their equipment through Bellevue Healthcare, as long as they still meet the clinical qualifications set forth by their insurance provider.

A Buri/Bellevue Healthcare representative will contact customers to help with the transition and to solicit additional documentation if necessary, Buri explained.

Bellevue Healthcare, which serves customers in Washington, Idaho and Oregon, was a natural fit for the Colfax store, Buri said.

"I believe Bellevue Healthcare will continue providing the same level of service while enhancing and expanding the product offerings and delivery capabilities," Buri said. "Bellevue Healthcare is committed to a truly local philosophy and their core values align almost identically with Buri's."

The Buri's office will stay in Colfax for the foreseeable future. Jonathan Buri, a nephew of Angela, will remain as store manager and two other employees, Michelle Crook and Brandi Davis, will also continue at the Colfax location.

"I want to thank the people of Whitman County for supporting Buri's Medical Equipment since 1997," Buri said. "It has been an honor to serve all of you and I am truly excited for this next chapter for Buri's."
