ANCASTER, Ontario (November 2, 2022) – Drive Medical and SFI Medical Equipment Solutions (SFI Medical) are pleased to announce a new contract with Shannex™ to provide and install over 700 hospital beds in active long-term care (LTC) facilities across Atlantic Canada and Ontario. Having the opportunity to partner for installation and servicing is a privilege that will support Shannex™ in achieving its mission of leading the way to better living.
A bed installation of this magnitude is a core part of infrastructure and resident care in these facilities. The beds, manufactured by Drive Medical, will be fully assembled offsite and then delivered and installed in resident rooms by SFI Medical’s technical service team.
“We are humbled by this opportunity, having spent nearly a decade providing much-needed products and white-glove service to the LTC sector Canada-wide,” said Scott Alexander, President of SFI Medical. “Partnering with Drive, we are able to get a large volume of premium beds into these homes in a timely manner while leveraging our service solutions specifically for LTC – that’s our specialty which we’ve been honing since the beginning.”
“The relationship between supplier and distributor is critical when it comes to the successful outcome of any long-term care facility,” said Cale Wadden, Regional Sales Director of Drive Medical. “When we partnered with SFI Medical, we were looking for more than lowest pricing. We found a partner that held similar values, that we mutually embrace when it comes to: one-stop shop execution; highest quality service available; knowledge to educate facilities on high-quality equipment; ability to adapt quickly within the regulatory requirements and trends of the industry; and maintain daily patient care, disruption-free.”
