Sunderland’s Lynch Healthcare Group has been acquired by Direct Healthcare Group (DHG), the European manufacturer of pressure care, patient handling and specialist seating solutions.
Lynch manufactures a range of patient slings, hoisting equipment, and shower chairs, including the David Lynch Tailored range.
Through the acquisition, DHG further broadens its patient-handling sling solutions, and bathroom safety solutions through the Austin Shower Cradle.
This provides healthcare professionals with a comprehensive portfolio that enables patient movement safely across an increased patient population.
The move also increases DHG’s ability to provide customer services to its UK customers.
Graham Ewart, CEO at Direct Healthcare Group, said: “The acquisition of Lynch Healthcare Group further underpins our commitment to providing UK customers with high quality, clinically effective pressure area care, patient handling and bathroom safety solutions for 24 hour care in, around, and above the bed, and beyond.
“More so, the acquisition further enables us to service our expanded patient handling portfolio, ensuring our healthcare workers are provided with effective, reliable patient lifting products with minimal disruption or down time.”
