The first full 10-year set costing model programme has just been launched by global medical manufacturer, Hillrom.
The 10-year guarantee will apply only to the UK and Ireland across the HR 900 bed system.
Hillrom’s aim with the move is to highlight its reliability and durability.
The costing programme has been introduced in order to help hospitals to reduce lifetime costs associated with bed frame platforms and to budget more accurately by eliminating unexpected bills for spare parts or repair.
This offer will run across the Hillrom 900 frames from the third year, once the Hillrom standard warranty ends, through to the tenth year of ownership.
It includes servicing, all spare parts and replacement batteries at the age intervals recommended by Hillrom.
Technical training for hospital teams responsible for maintenance will be provided on a one-off basis to ensure Hillrom’s guidelines and recommendations are upheld.
James Rhodes, marketing manager, early mobilisation and falls prevention at Hillrom, said: “The Hillrom 900 platform was designed, engineered and tested to deliver superior durability, exceed industry standards and ensure reliability through its lifetime.”
Adding: “The straightforward design of the bed combined with the extensive service capabilities from Hillrom plus our pioneering 10-year guarantee, will ensure that healthcare facilities achieve maximum return on investment and top-quality patient care.”
