Family-run healthcare equipment supplier Innova Care Concepts has secured yet another order with Spire Healthcare Group worth £75,000, which is the company’s biggest Spire order to date.
Having recently been added to the Spire Healthcare suppliers list, Innova was invited to trial its Interlude hospital bed range the group London East Hospital campus. Spire emphasized that it needed beds to suit standard ward patients, children, and plus-sized individuals. What’s more, the hospital wanted all these beds to be supplied by one company.
Having smaller-sized beds for the children’s ward was a key thing for Spire London East, and Innova managed to come up with the perfect solution; a narrow, more compact version of their Interlude Newcare hospital bed.
Joe Hulbert, Sales Director at Innova, said:
“Our work with Spire Healthcare Group is just one way that we’re expanding within hospitals across the country. We’ve supplied about 80 beds to them so far and they’ve given us some great feedback from both their staff and their patients.
“This deal is certainly a bookmark moment for Innova as we continue to strive to become the UK’s most sought-after brand in the healthcare sector by 2020.”
The team delivered 26 Interlude Newcare V3 beds for standard wards, five Interlude Newcare narrow beds for the paediatrics ward, and one Interlude Platinum in a wide version for the bariatric ward. This expansion into the private hospital market follows Innova’s recent work with NHS hospitals in England, Scotland, and Wales.
Another key factor in Innova winning the order was the company’s flexibility on branding. As part of the Spire Healthcare Group, the hospital wanted the footends of its beds to have their colours and branding on them. Innova came up with a design that can be customised to any Spire hospital in the country.
Innova is also currently working with Nuffield Health on its hospitals and their equipment. The company’s work with private hospital groups is helping to cement Innova’s position within the healthcare equipment market.
