The Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and Royal Philips Electronics (Royal Philips), a parent company of Philips Healthcare (Philips) have signed a 10-year agreement to manage the imaging technology needs of the hospital’s imaging diagnostics department. Under the contract Philips will provide, maintain and replace medical equipment over the next 10 years at a fixed monthly fee without incurring high initial expenditure for the hospital.
The agreement ensures that the hospital is equipped with solutions that put clinicians’ and patients’ needs at the centre of care. Medical equipment will be replaced in line with agreed cycles, based on clinical guidance from Hospital Sant Pau and taking into account any technological advances that occur during the contract period. The agreement includes management of equipment from imaging specialties including MR, CT, nuclear medicine, X-ray and ultrasound.
The Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and Philips share a common vision for approaching the challenges in diagnostic imaging, as well as a common ambition in terms of the role that our imaging diagnosis department should play in the national and international arenas, said Dr Josep Lluis Soler, deputy manager of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.
