O’Flynn Medical has announced its largest expansion since opening in 2000. Construction on the premises is currently underway and is due for completion January 2014. The new facility will be one of the largest in the county with state of the art equipment being installed. The inclusion of a purpose built decontamination unit will ensure that specialist equipment including, beds, air mattresses, hoists, and specialist seating is thoroughly cleaned tested and certified prior to, and following rental.
Speaking at announcement O ‘Flynn’s Managing Director, Tadhg O’Flynn advised that “our recent successes in the health industry will ensure the long-term viability of O’Flynn Medical”. These successes include being awarded the HSE tender for the supply of the Stryker Auto Sure Float high risk pressure care mattress for their new Critical Care Unit. O’Flynn Medical was awarded this contract following extensive trials on a vast number of mattresses having being trialled.
One of O’Flynn medical largest success to date has been the supply of scrubEx & alEx (automated garment dispensers) to hospitals in Ireland and the UK. These systems were introduced to Ireland by O’Flynn Medical in 2010. Both systems maximise the savings potential in the provision of scrubs (scrubEx) linen (alEx) allowing hospital management to reduce operating costs without compromising on patients safety. Both systems provide management reporting software to validate the laundry company’s charges, and up to the minute information and live data on all users totally eliminating non-returns to the system. The system is widely used in US Hospitals. Systems have received the stamp of approval from laundry supplies such as Celtic Linen with MD of Celtic Linen Philip Scallan stating, “Celtic Linen considers the scrubEx system to be the most significant development in hospital linen service this decade”.
Following their success in the Irish Marketplace O’Flynn Medical has increased their portfolio having acquired the European & the UK franchise for these unique systems. The UK market has had a huge interest, with the systems already being ordered in high profile hospitals.
In addition to supplying HSE and privately owned hospitals/nursing homes, O’Flynn Medical also provides a rental service to patients that seek specialist equipment to ensure their comfort both at home and away.
