ecoline Supports Market Expansion with Limited Budget
Siemens Healthcare | 2016-03-21
When Desert Radiologists, the largest group of diagnostic imaging physicians in Nevada, decided to open the first radiology clinic in the underserved northeast Las Vegas area, it needed to purchase a significant amount of equipment with a limited budget. By opting for ecoline refurbished systems from Siemens Healthcare, Desert Radiologists was able to acquire all of the core radiology equipment it needed to serve this rapidly growing market.
New Facility, Refurbished Equipment
From its founding in 1966, Desert Radiologists has built its reputation on quality. The practice operates the first outpatient radiology center in the southwest to be named a “Diagnostic Center of
Excellence” by the American College of Radiology. Having seven of its physicians named “Top Doctors” by U.S. News & World Report further underscores Desert Radiologists’ commitment to delivering a high standard of medical care.*
Therefore, the imaging equipment used at its centers needs to meet the same high standard. By selecting ecoline systems for its facility in northeast Las Vegas, Desert Radiologists’ staff
demonstrated its trust that refurbished equipment from Siemens Healthcare could deliver
uncompromising quality and performance.
Maintaining Quality in a Changing Economic Environment
Imaging Manager Keith Mosley, who is responsible for all of Desert Radiologists’ equipment purchases and service contracts, notes the challenges of adhering to high standards in today’s healthcare economy.
“There’s no question that reduced reimbursement has weighed heavily on outpatient imaging,” he says. “We will always conduct quality examinations, but we have to do so while dealing with the realities of a limited capital equipment budget.”
Because ecoline systems combine greater affordability with like-new quality, dependability, and clinical functionality, they were a sound strategic choice for Desert Radiologists. “Siemens has given us a solution to provide excellent imaging quality at a price point that fits within our stretched budgets,” says Mosley. “We also feel that we are continuing to give our patients a top-notch imaging
procedure with this equipment.”
