SCHS is a distributor of medical devices to hospitals, specialising in anaesthetic, respiratory, emergency, sterile surgical and ophthalmic products. Southern Cross Hospital Supplies (SCHS) is an Australian owned company and is the new trading name of K.E.V. Medical, which remains as the parent holding company. Established in 1991 with the purpose of providing hospitals with an alternative to the high cost and inflexibility of imports, we offered a range of single use breathing circuits that could be tailored to a customer's needs.
Over the years we have developed long standing relationships with our customers in both the public and private hospital sectors and have expanded our range to include complimentary, imported, specialty devices particularly in the anaesthetic and respiratory speciality areas.
The recent acquisition of a manufacturing facility and sterile product range not only broadens our services to customers but also increases our capabilities to offer new and customised products. Our challenge is to continue to satisfy our long standing customers and to develop relationships with our new customers. New products are in the pipeline as synergistic extensions to the respiratory range and as our manufacturing facilities are expanded we are able to expand our locally made sterile product range.
We believe our success results from a focus on maintaining continuity of supply and by offering a wide range of quality products, either locally made or imported. With our customers' support, we can invest in people to establish mutually beneficial relationships that identify and fulfil each other's special needs.
