Life Tech, headquartered in Elmhurst, IL, is a leading full-service provider of high-tech home respiratory equipment and services to patients with complex medical needs throughout the Midwest.

Over the last 20 years, Life Tech has developed an award-winning reputation for treating the most complex cases, establishing itself as a trusted, preferred provider with its referral sources. Consequently, on the strength of its reputation, the Company has become a preferred provider for the region’s largest children’s hospitals, hospice, and palliative care centers.
“We are proud of what we have achieved at Life Tech. Livingstone provided us with the advocacy and support we needed every step of the way.
