Georgia health system purchases 27 Philips ultrasound systems
WellStar Health Systems has purchased 26 iU22 and one HD11 XE ultrasound systems from Philips Healthcare for its hospitals and imaging centers.

The new systems will be dispersed between five hospitals and three outpatient diagnostic centers in the metro Atlanta area, including WellStar Kennestone, the busiest emergency room in Georgia, according to the Marietta, Ga.-based health system.

Robert Mandler, executive director, medical imaging, WellStar, said that Philips’ iU22 ultrasound system provides expanded volumetric capabilities, solutions for scanning technically difficult patients, interventional tools and new approaches to improve workflow efficiencies.

The HD11 XE system meets the growing need of many healthcare institutions for an “all-in-one” ultrasound system that can easily handle the scanning needs of a wide variety of exam types accurately and efficiently, the company said.
