An Open Tender is a method in which the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation purchases medical equipment for Polish hospitals. It is an extensive demonstration of equipment, which is inspected by the specialists on the panel and a negotiation regarding the price, warranty period, necessary staff training and delivery of the devices to hospitals.

This time the Board of the Foundation and experts will be looking to purchase equipment for paediatric wards - both sophisticated devices such as ultrasound machines and basic pieces of equipment such as beds and furniture so that parents visiting their children in hospitals can relax by their bedsides in comfort. The 3 147 pieces of equipment will be purchased for 224 different wards across the country. 

The Board of the Foundation is looking to buy: 

  • ultrasound machines (basic) - 61 
  • ultrasound machines (premium) - 7
  • ultrasound machines (cardiovascular) - 7
  • stationary x-ray machines - 2
  • portable x-ray machines - 3
  • hospital beds for children (large) - 343 
  • hospital beds for young adults - 692 
  • hospital beds for children (infant beds) - 560
  • cots for newborns - 30
  • chairs for parents /guardians - 438 
  • cardiac monitors - 177

  • syringe pumps - 321
  • pulse oximeters - 209

  • blood vessel scanners - 69

 

However, depending on the results of the negotiations the final number of equipment purchased at the 49th Open Tender might change. 

Equipment purchased this week will be bought for the money collected during the anniversary 25th Grand Finale charitable collection which took place on January 15th, 2017, when we managed to raise a sum of 105 570 801,49 PLN.
