Lanny LaPlante, Jr., Blue Star Founder & Owner

Lanny grew up on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. After serving 14 honorable years in the US Marine Corps, he returned to the reservation and began a career with local law enforcement. During his law enforcement career, he was shocked by the lack of quality healthcare and poor medical equipment available. Lanny formed Blue Star to fill the need and supply up-to-date, high-quality medical equipment and supplies to the Indian Health Service (IHS.)

Blue Star Medical’s team

Blue Star has an outstanding relationship with over 100 suppliers and manufacturers and a sales team with over 20  years of experience. We can streamline IHS orders, from consumables to high tech medical equipment, through our distribution network.
