NiQ Health congratulates ELA, CarePlus™ Gold Partner in Western Australia, on their successful integration of CarePlus™ nurse call solution for the new Ronald McDonald House Perth (RMHP). The $27million House is located next to the new Perth Children’s Hospital, and is expected to open to families later this year. ELA won the tender to install the CarePlus™ nurse call system, together with MATV and PA systems for RMHP. The CarePlus™ nurse call solution ensures patient safety and compliance as it is able to meet strict international standards and nurse call certifications, including the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) of Australia and the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) requirements for medical device.

NiQ Health and ELA have a successful, long-standing partnership and ELA has won the CarePlus™ Partner of the Year award in 2010 and 2013.
Ronald McDonald House Charities operates the RMHP, which provides accommodation and support for regional WA families who travel to the city to undergo specialist medical care for their seriously ill children. Since 1981, the independent, not-for-profit organization has helped and supported children and families across Australia. The new House, in Perth’s suburb of Nedlands, will cater to 1000 families each year, providing a comfortable and healing environment, where the whole family can stay together throughout the treatment.
