Jay and Trudy Broadbent, Owners

Jay and Trudy Broadbent put their heart and soul into the foundation of Copper Star Home Medical. Their mission is to serve the people of Arizona who are in need of medical and healthcare assistance. The vision of Copper Star is to offer a central location with the largest showroom in the state so the entire Copper Star team can provide a place where individuals of all ages can feel comfortable, be heard, and walk away knowing they are welcomed.

Korry Johnston, President

We pride ourselves of having the most amazing employees and providing the best customer service in Arizona. Our goal is to make sure our customers feel they are always taken care of the same way we would take care of our own family. Nothing feels better than being able to spend time with customers and educate them on ways they can improve their lives.  No one wakes up in the morning wanting to visit a medical supply store, they come to us because they need help.  I love being a part of the solution to the challenges our customer face on a daily basis.  My greatest accomplishment is being a devoted husband to my wife, Tara, and proud father to our 3 children, Brooklyn, Lexi, and Kayson.
