Biggest shopping yet!

2018-11-05 16:24:45

51st Open Tender marks the biggest shopping in the history of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation because in the course of 3 days we want to buy almost 3 thousand pieces of state of the medical equipment for public hospitals in Poland! This time we are focusing our efforts on acquiring the best devices for neonatal wards, which treat the youngest and most vulnerable patients: newborns and prematurely born babies. If all offers prove to be interesting, the Foundation will buy medical devices for almost 65 000 000 PLN, making this Open Tender the biggest shopping effort in our history

Together with a team of experts on medicine and technology, we will be looking to purchase: 

  • closed incubators - 284 
  • cardiac monitors - 299
  • infusion pumps - 209 
  • the portable infant warmers - 421
  • pulse oximeters - 438
  • syringe pumps - 508 
  • electronic scales - 343
  • USG machines - 106 
  • decontamination devices - 15
  • hot air infant warmers - 80
  • heating mattresses - 44
  • heating mattresses for neonates - 47 

Our aim is to purchase only the best possible equipment and to ensure that each device is properly serviced and the staff is trained on how to use it. Negotiations often take a long time, until we reach a satisfactory price and warranty period for the equipment we buy. We want to make sure that hospitals can begin using the devices as soon as possible and use it at its full capacity. Each model and piece of equipment is inspected by a group of experts - doctors, nurses, medical engineers and contracts are drafted by a team of lawyers.
