Select Medical started as a small owner managed business in 2001 and since then has steadily grown. The company was born out of a desire to make things better for patients using pressure relieving products and those people involved in delivering their care. And so, the C3 philosophy emerged as a guiding principle for the company and its employees…..the cared for, carer and care provider are now firmly at the heart of the business and help to focus the work we do.
Research & Development
In practical terms this has meant that investment in a number of areas has been a priority. In 2015, following extensive research and development of its products, a major rebranding exercise saw the launch of Select Medical’s new Pure Air, Simpulse and OLA brands. These brands were designed to offer a complete collection of support surfaces to suit a range of budgets and a range of caring environments. The Pure Air ‘Extra Care’ brand quickly followed, providing affordable, specialised pressure relieving support surfaces for patients that can sometimes be overlooked. Extra Care offers mattresses specifically designed for the needs of bariatric and lightweight patients as well as children.
Investing in Facilities
Whilst investment in product research and development will always continue, as we strive to bring the latest and best innovations to our customers, other areas of investment are helping to propel the business forward. Our new cleaning and decontamination facility has been designed to meet the rigours of even the most stringent infection control policy, with the latest professional washers and dryers installed. A new showroom offers a space for customers to see our products before purchasing, but also an area for competency training so carers know how to get the very best out of our systems.
Investing in People
Perhaps the most important area for investment, and without whom the business couldn’t grow and thrive, has been in its people. Today Select Medical employs many talented individuals and fully supports their professional and personal growth. Our diverse workforce creates a stimulating and rewarding work environment where ideas and creativity are encouraged. As Select Medical continues to move forward we are always on the lookout for skilled professionals, particularly in the area of business development and sales.
