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.
