Healthcare shouldn't harm the planet.

Healthcare has a problem.

While looking after patients , healthcare is harming the planet.

Every day, thousands of tonnes of healthcare waste is generated across Australia and New Zealand. From manufacturing to supply chains, Healthcare is responsible for 7% of global emissions. 

Medsalv is helping the healthcare industry break its commitment to the linear economy and switch to a more sustainable, circular model.

By using our remanufactured medical devices hospitals can save our planet, reducing waste to landfills by up to 92.8%, save money without complex contracts, and support the local economy.

From single-use to sustainable

Medsalv has developed safe and effective remanufacturing processes for more than 50 devices - this means instead of using a device once and sending it to landfill, your hospital could get up to 14  additional uses.

I want to be sustainable
1. Hospital use
Reprocessed devices are stored and used clinically in your hospital in exactly the same manner as new devices. Reprocessed devices are clearly marked so your staff can maximise cost & waste savings.
2. Collections
After being used, devices are collected in Medsalv collection bags. Hospital staff use our simple online form to notify us when their collection bags are full. The devices are delivered to our local facility for remanufacturing.
3. Remanufacturing
Devices go through our digitally monitored cleaning, retesting, labelling and packaging process. Each device goes through a total of 9 inspections and we guarantee a patient experience that matches that of a new device.
4. Returning
The journey comes full circle with devices returned to the hospital at up to 60% less than the original device price. Devices are then used and collected for remanufacturing, again.
We believe sustainability means more than planting a few trees.

Environmental and social sustainability have been the fabric of Medsalv since day one.

Our Impact

We’ve been collecting devices and remanufacturing devices from hospitals all over New Zealand since October 2017.

In 2023, we started working with hospitals across Australia too.

We have two remanufacturing facilities, one in Christchurch (New Zealand), and the other in Geelong, Victoria (Australia).

Join the movement

From Perth to Invercargill, we’re working with 90+ hospitals across Australia and New Zealand to break the “make, waste, repeat” model of single-use devices.

Here's what our customers say about us
Feed your curiosity

"Working alongside Medsalv has been a rewarding experience - knowing that the devices we use are contributing to more than stacks of landfill waste. In healthcare, where medical waste is abundant, Medsalv has enabled us to divert hundreds of single-use devices from landfills.

The partnership has not only positively impacted our hospital but also resonated with me on a personal level. The knowledge that our partnership contributes to a healthier environment and a stronger community instils a sense of pride and purpose. Their passionate and dedicated team made the process as simple as possible, and we’re thrilled to continue working together to make a positive, sustainable impact."

Dave Curtin, Perioperative Services Manager
John Fawkner Private Hospital

“The Medsalv remanufactured products are reliable and safe and at a discounted rate, this makes economic sense. It's a win/win situation as it's also great for the environment. The collection process of the devices is very simple and the staff are very personable.”

Sharon Hubert, Implementation Specalist
Auckland City Hospital

“Your dedication to delivering insightful data has empowered us to navigate our sustainability initiatives with confidence. Moreover, I am particularly thankful for Medsalv's genuine concern for both our patients and the environment.

It is truly refreshing to partner with a company that shares our values and actively contributes to the well-being of both people and the planet."
