Wave Healthcare


On April 1, 2008, Wave Healthcare opened its doors to provide a unique level of respiratory care to children throughout Texas. Focused on improving the lives of their patients and their caretakers, Rodney Gray founded the company with a strong conviction. Rodney took out a second mortgage and had the vision to disrupt the market. 15 years later, his company now serves over 2500 patients a month throughout Texas. We’re excited to showcase Wave Healthcare as Texas innovators.



Improving Technology to Save Lives


The attention to their patients, unwavering determination to make the lives of healthcare workers easier, and continuously improving their technology sets them apart from the rest. When you decide to take on ventilators as your primary focus, the worst thing that could happen would be to have a child die in the hands of a caretaker who was ready and willing to care for the child, but the technology failed them. Wave Healthcare sets the bar for respiratory care in their patients and their technology supports them.
