RCare Nurse Call Receives STEP Global NY Exports Grant, Expands into Africa
RCare, a global provider of UL-1069 listed wireless nurse call and personal emergency response systems, announced their recent win of the State Trade & Export Promotion (STEP) Global NY Exports Grant. This program was designed to increase the number of New York-based small businesses that export goods globally, and to increase the value of their exports.
The grant will send RCare to showcase their nurse call offerings at the Africa Health Exhibition in Johannesburg, South Africa June 7-9. This healthcare exhibition is one of Africa’s largest, with over 9,000 healthcare professionals in attendance. RCare was the only nurse call technology selected for this exclusive opportunity.
Myron Kowal, CEO of RCare, says RCare’s BCube system could have a huge impact on the care of people in Africa. The BCube is a full-featured wireless nurse call system, but is designed and priced exclusively for small campuses, which is perfect for rural parts of the world with a limited budget and smaller facilities.
“Rural and remote areas need the rich features of an advanced nurse call and monitoring technology, but their facilities are often small and cannot afford the price tag,” said Katya Kowal, Director of International Sales at RCare. “We are humbled to have this opportunity to enter into the African healthcare market with our BCube, which was designed just for small communities.”
