KeyCorp's affiliate, Key Equipment Finance, has entered into an exclusive, long term agreement program with Hitachi Medical Systems America, the US distributor of Hitachi Medical Corporation's diagnostic imaging products.
The new partnership with Key Equipment Finance will offer equipment financing options to medical facilities interested in obtaining Hitachi MRI, CT and ultrasound equipment.
The equipment finance relationship will also enable hospitals and outpatient imaging clinics to take advantage of one stop shopping for diagnostic imaging equipment and financing, as well as conserve cash and take advantage of the tax benefits of equipment leasing.
Key Equipment Finance has hired experienced Hitachi Medical Systems leasing professionals to join the company’s existing healthcare team to support the program.
Hitachi Medical Systems president and CEO Don Broomfield said Key Equipment Finance has been their lead funding source and they are pleased to be working with them on a more formal, long-term basis to offer flexible financing solutions to their diagnostic imaging clients.
"Key Equipment Finance’s leasing experts are well versed in the intricacies of the imaging industry in today’s complicated healthcare market, and we look forward to working more closely with them," Broomfield said.
