Fast, Secure & Efficient Cash Management-SafeCash Retail Station: Meander Medical Centre

The medical centre needed a solution which would simplify the processes involved with cash
handling across the hospital and create a fast, secure and efficient system for cash management.

Meander Medical Centre is a leading clinical healthcare provider employing over 3,000 professional staff and 200 medical specialists. It runs hospitals in the Netherlands and provides care to around 320,000 local inhabitants. Medical data provider, Elsevier, named Meander as one of the best hospitals in the Netherlands in its 2015 report.



Since 2013, the hospital has been using Gunnebo’s SafeCash Retail Station – a back-office solution for the recycling of notes and coins – to manage cash processing.

All the departments that deal with cash are connected centrally and the cash taken each day from the pharmacies, parking and hospitality is processed in one place.

In the morning, the Retail Station automatically dispenses the chosen mix of denominations for each till and at the end of the day, the whole cash tray is placed into the machine.

Deposited cash is recycled by the Retail Station and used again to prepare cash register floats for the coming day.
