Ricoh Ireland donates €175K equipment to Temple Street Hospital

It was announced today that Ricoh Ireland has donated print and document management devices worth more than €175,000 to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, allowing the hospital to make significant savings. 

The savings will now be redistributed within the overall hospital budget and can be used to fund medical devices and equipment.

Ricoh donated the suite of 44 nearly-new print and document management devices to the hospital, including 33 from biotechnology company, Amgen.

Before delivery, Ricoh serviced the entire fleet, provided new parts as necessary and fully tested the equipment to ensure optimum performance. It also waived any revenues that could be won through a contract with the hospital.

The devices are now being used across multiple key departments including laboratories, operating theatres, radiology, wards, ICU and in the School of Nursing. The scanning capabilities are helping Temple Street become a ‘greener place of work’ by moving towards a paperless environment.

Contracts & Procurement Manager at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, James Lohan said, "We were delighted when we were approached by Ricoh with their generous offer. Our existing printers were very old and it was coming to the point where we would have to go back to market to replace them. This arrangement is allowing us to make significant savings in operational costs, while also helping us to implement a greener procurement process."

He added, "The savings will be used across the hospital site and can be used to fund medical devices to benefit patients directly. Any budget savings are greatly welcomed by us as they can then be used to directly benefit our patients.”
