CPAP Direct was founded by Mr. Simon Ho, Registered Respiratory Therapist in Scarborough, Ontario over 11 years ago with a vision to raise awareness and treatment options for Canadians suffering from sleep disorders. He worked infinitely with physicians and specialists including Respirologists, Cardiologists, Psychiatrists, ENTs, and Neurologists to properly help identify, treat and manage sleep disorders. Since inception, CPAP Direct Ltd has successfully grown to 7 locations across Ontario, 9 locations in British Columbia and 4 locations internationally.
His highly credible work, and quality patient care has garnered him a respectable reputation in the medical community, not only locally, but internationally as well. He has been featured on many various media outlets around the world including television, breakfast shows, health wellness series, radio, and newspaper. He was awarded Asian Pacific Entrepreneur of the Year by ACCE in 2014, and has been awarded his own Sleep Wellness Weekly Column in the Largest Chinese Newspaper, Ming Pao Daily.
In 2010, Mr. Ho was invited by various large medical groups in Asia to bring his sleep experience and expertise to undertake the overwhelming need and lack of sleep awareness and treatment options. The absence of private sleep labs, and home sleep testing options in Asia has created significant wait times to reach up to 1.5 years in most of the public hospital sleep labs. In the last 7 years, Simon and his team has help alleviate this backlog by introducing a home sleep testing program in Hong Kong and the Philippines to increase awareness, service and more importantly treatment accessibility for all in Asia. CPAP Direct will continue to evolve and collaborate with leading medical professionals around the world to help individuals sleep better and live healthier lives.
