RHN Drapers Ward with Integralifts

Following its best ever trading year in 2018, winning a number of significant contracts with NHS and private hospitals, Innova Care Concepts continues to gain momentum in 2019 with a major contract win to supply over 30 pieces of moving and handling equipment to an independent hospital.

The company has been selected to supply and install 33 new patient lifting hoists at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN), an independent charity hospital providing rehabilitation and long-term care to people with complex neurological disabilities.

Based in Putney, South London, the new equipment is part of an ongoing refurbishment scheme across the Grade II listed building, enhancing the care environment for those who have suffered significant brain injuries and people who live with long-term conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and Huntington’s disease.

Having recently supplied 19 hoist systems from the first phase of the refurbishment covering Drapers Ward, this new phase of work will see the Cathcart and Evitt wards revamped and modernised to meet the needs of both the patients and medical staff in the hospital.

Bob Oliver, Projects Director for Innova, said: “It’s a pleasure to have been chosen to install more Integralift hidden hoist systems for phase two of the RHN refurbishment plan program.

“Hospitals like this one are exactly why we strive to design and deliver such innovative healthcare equipment. The RHN is leading by example, and we’re excited to be working with Architon and JF Jones on this project.”

The Integralift is a particularly unique product according to Innova, with the ability to be folded away into a bedhead cupboard when it is not needed, keeping the room looking comfortable without removing the ability to be accessible.

Maxine Hoole, Physiotherapist at the RHN, said: “We’ve seen such great improvements on the wards that have been refurbished. We’ve seen improved patient comfort, workflow, and the families can’t stop raving about how wonderful the environment is for their loved ones.”

Innova’s next phase of installations will begin in August 2019, with the hospital choosing a slightly different design that will allow for a television to be mounted above the bed, enabling patients with severely limited mobility and cognitive function to still be entertained throughout the day.

Established in 2008, Innova has gone from strength-to-strength and has quickly become a multi-million-pound business. The company is now a leading supplier in hospitals, hospices, care homes, and private individuals’ homes across the UK, securing lucrative contracts with organisations such as Spire Healthcare Group.
