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.
Blue Star is a Native American company. In addition, we’re also an SDVOSB, HUBZone, and an MBE certified company. We focus on supporting the IHS by providing quality products and excellent customer service. We help companies like yours fulfill your obligation to the Buy Indian Act. Our team takes the time to build specialized relationships with individuals like you. We’ve worked hard to build these relationships. Blue Star has become the first call for contracting officers looking for new supplies and equipment.
