Founded in 2001 as DEROME biomédical, HÆLYS is a Canadian company offering specialized clinical and biomedical engineering services, specifically the management, maintenance and repair of medical, health care and personal care equipment.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Our name, HÆLYS (pronounced “aylees”), is a play on the French word hélice, meaning “helix.” It is inspired by the double helix structure of DNA, the foundation of life, its evolution, stability and reproducibility. It also evokes the helical shape of a propeller blade, which converts an engine’s power into the driving force that propels an aircraft to its next destination.
The “Æ” in our name represents the two distinct entities within our organization—our technical services and consulting services units—which complement each other and, together, form a whole.
“LYS” means “lily” in French. It is the flower that adorns our province’s flag and serves as a reminder of our French-Canadian roots wherever we offer our services.
AN APPROACH ADAPTED TO YOUR NEEDS AND YOUR SITUATION
Our clientele includes, but is not limited to, private surgical clinics, Family Medicine Groups (FMG) and Local Community Services Centres (CLSC), various personal service establishments (acupuncture, tattooing, epilation, etc.), research centres and hospitals within the Integrated Health and Social Services Centres (CISSS) and the Integrated University Health and Social Services Centres (CIUSSS), and clinics in the workplace.
