Hospedia Ltd, a Slough, UK-based provider of point of care systems in healthcare, including media, information, clinical support software and infrastructure services, has received a £2m equipment leasing facility from GE Capital’s Healthcare Finance division.
It adds to a leasing facility of £8m provided in September 2011.
The company intends to use the funding for investment in its clinical bed-side technology and the roll-out of a range of information and clinical support software including Extramed’s Patient Flow management system.
Led by Tim Weil, CEO, Hospedia currently employs over 400 people and provides 69,000 bed-side terminals offering media, information and clinical support software including real-time patient feedback surveys and electronic meal-ordering to over 150 hospitals in the UK.
The company, which acquired patient bed flow management company Extramed in July, plans to expand its clinical offering by making Extramed’s Patient Flow management system available via its bedside terminals.
