Botswana Healthcare Project

Supply of Medical Couches for the Regeneration of Botswana Healthcare Project

HCE Medical Group are proud to announce our participation in the regeneration of Botswana Healthcare Project through Medi-Plinth Ltd, our subsidiary supplying high-quality medical couches.

Health outcomes have improved in Botswana over the last few decades and Botswana’s public health system has over 17 primary hospitals, 14 district hospitals, two referral hospitals, and one mental health hospital managed by the central government. HCE Medical Group are actively looking to support health initiatives internationally and a meeting with the Botswana team at Arab Healthcare 2018 showcasing our products and expertise led us to secure this order to supply medical couches to support a new hospital build within Botswana.

Our team worked efficiently to complete the order of 133 medical couches within the time frame and these were shipped out by container on 13th September 2018. We appreciate the hard-work of all the Medi-Plinth staff in delivering this order and wanted to highlight the process involved in building and shipping from our Ipswich manufacturing site into the containers to go by road to Felixstowe, by sea to Durban Port and by road to Gabarone, Botswana. A very busy day loading the goods into the tight containers but the UK sunshine made it a lot easier. A fulfilling thought for us all at HCE Medical Group to see these pictures and to know we were part of a much bigger project to help health delivery and outcomes in nations outside of the UK.

Medi-Plinth Equipment Limited have been designing, manufacturing and supplying variable height examination couches and associated furniture to global healthcare markets for over 30 years. Their new couch product developments in C-Arm, advanced manoeuvrable gynaecological couch, new haemodialysis chair and day surgery operating tables at the most economical pricing have created new opportunities for HCE Medical Group internationally and we welcome broadening our export markets.

Arab Health 2018

The group recently exhibited at Arab Health 2018 in the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 29 January – 01 February 2018. With representatives attending from HCE-UK, Medi-plinth, HCE-Ghana and HCEM India, our team were excited to meet with our current suppliers and provide more global exposure to our group. The convention was filled with healthcare related companies exhibiting the best products and services from the global market. We had a very successful first day, the group had a meeting with deputy ruler of Dubai, Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum whilst he was attending Hall 7, of which we were located.

The second day of our exhibit allowed us time to meet up with team members from both HCE Ghana and HCEM India. The team had an opportunity to explore more of the convention and we were all blown away by it’s scale. Arab health is one of the largest medical shows with over 8000 exhibitors visiting this year. We were extremely impressed with the great organisation of the convention, particularly the taxi logistics moving big crowds in and out each day.

Our third day at Arab Health was our busiest and most interesting. Plenty of time spent conversing with customers and other visitors to the show, with lots of interest in our Medi-plinth couches. Together we clocked up over 15,000 steps, further exploring the convention and meeting up with our trusted suppliers and partners across the floor. We did take the chance to grab some snaps of us visiting Seca and Siemens exhibits, although there we did meet many more.

Overall we had a fantastic time in Dubai and were definitely feeling the love. We had a really great response from both the industry, visitors and our suppliers. Our group are extremely grateful for the continued support and ideas to innovate even further in the future!
