Our History

Created through Innovation

From its inception in 1956, Lambert’s Health Care has always been an innovator in the homecare field. Lambert’s grew from its Knoxville home to have branches across Tennessee as well as Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and North Carolina. After a series of acquisitions from 1984-1989, Knoxville native and Lambert’s employee Randy Wolfe (who joined the Lambert’s team in 1979) purchased the company in 1989. In the late 1990s, Wolfe made the strategic decision to refocus the company back to its original roots in Knoxville to give him time to focus more fully on serving Lambert’s core customer base and to develop some of the company divisions that are now Lambert’s pillars today.

Lambert’s is an industry innovator in senior lifestyle retail, professional medical apparel, and specialty respiratory programs. For brevity the following list represents key accomplishments for Lambert’s since the new century began in the year 2000.
