Clinical Engineering Department

As the authorised South African distributors for some of the world’s major healthcare manufacturers it is vital that Medhold Medical are able to supply the service support that is expected for life support and other electromedical equipment.

Many of our customers take advantage of our all-inclusive extended warranties and maintenance contracts which provide peace of mind and no hidden costs.

We currently have 32 clinical engineers, all members of the Clinical Engineering Association of South Africa (CEASA) and our support centres are located in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein and East London.

Contact details can be found in the Contact Us page, accessible via the link at the top of this web page.

Repair Centres

Repairs which cannot be carried out in the regional support centres are sent to our in-house repair centre in Johannesburg where a team of dedicated technicians are able to provide more specialised diagnostic and repair services. Loan equipment is provided wherever possible if your equipment has to be removed for repair.

Certified Training

Medhold are distributors for GE Healthcare, Getinge, Conmed and Maquet to name a few, and our technical support staff have all received manufacturer-approved training on the latest service and diagnostic procedures.

Regular refresher training is conducted in-house and our engineers also travel to the manufacturers’ training centres in Europe and the USA to be trained before returning to South Africa to impart their knowledge to the rest of the team.

Training Others

In addition to training our own clinical engineers Medhold offer regular first-line training courses for hospital clinical engineers. This can be on any equipment  from vital signs monitors to anaesthesia machines.

We also have a student training programme that is accredited by the Tshwane University of Technology.
