Using Bractal's suggested points except B=(b,0) [I find it easier to let b be negative] the algebra I will spare you but it did fit on one side of a page:

H = (0,-bc/a)
O = ((b+c)/2,(bc+a)/(2a))
M = ((b+c)/4,(a-bc)/(4a))

E = ((ab+ac+bc+4abc-3a^4)/(4a(b+c)),0)

P = ((ab+ac+bc+4abc-3a^4)/(8a(b+c)),a/2)

Then

|PM| = |PD| =
((ab+ac+bc+4abc-3a^4)+16(b+c)a^6)/(64(b+c)a^4)
yes, they did both come out to this.
