Beechfield wins contract to supply beds to Ireland’s largest nursing home
Community and acute healthcare specialists Beechfield Healthcare has been awarded the largest ever nursing home bed contract in Ireland after winning the tender to supply the new TLC Group care facility in Dublin.
Following the announcement that Beechfield had become the national distribution partner for the Republic of Ireland for Sidhil products, the company has since been promoting the Sidhil brand around the country, which resulted in Beechfield landing the contract with the TLC Group.
Operating four large care facilities in Maynooth, City West and two in Santry, TLC Group is one of the largest care home providers in Ireland. Its latest residential facility is a 167-bed purpose-built nursing home in North Dublin, which aims to become the flagship for the group.
Noel Mulvihill, CEO of TLC Group said: “TLC services are community based and our aim is to offer a service which empowers both our resident and their families to live life at its best in our care.
“We appreciate making the decision to come in to long stay care is not an easy one, so therefore our staff are available to discuss future needs, Fair Deal whatever the issue so you are reassured that you have made the right decision with the most competent company.”
After a rigorous selection process, TLC Group selected the Bradshaw Bed.
“The Bradshaw from Drive DeVilbiss Sidhil came out on top in the selection process for a number of reasons including functionality, ease of use, compliance with infection control and aesthetics,” said Geraldine Telford, Group Purchasing Manager for the TLC Group.
She added: “Coupled with Beechfield Healthcare’s exceptional customer service and backup, it is an extremely compelling offering.”
Last December, Beechfield appointed Vincent Ward as their National Acute & Nursing Home Sales Manager. He was tasked with growing the Sidhil brand across the acute and care home sectors of the market.
Vincent’s previous tenure was in a sales management role with Invacare Ireland and he has a wealth of experience and strong understanding of the Irish bed and mattress market.
In tandem with Vincent’s appointment, Beechfield embarked on a multi-channel marketing campaign to announce its arrival to the market, culminating with the successful tender for the TLC Group.
