The contract between Canon and the Villarrobledo Hospital can be extended
The contract is for a period of four years, with an option to extend it by two years. It includes the renovation and adaptation of some spaces on the first floor of the hospital, integrated within the radiodiagnosis service, for the location of the technical room, examination room, magnetic resonance equipment control room, and waiting rooms.
According to the document signed by the director-general of health care of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, José Antonio Ballesteros, and taking into consideration market studies carried out and taking into account the latest awards of this health service for equipment of the same characteristics “the appropriate price is around $670,000 (€590,000).” Finally, the total amount for the equipment alone is just over $605,700 (€532,000) and payment is made in 2020.
Canon will carry out around 5,000 tests a year at the Albacete hospital
The price for the maintenance of the medical equipment is more than $180,000 (€158,000). The first payment will be made in 2021 and will amount to $40,120 (€35,225). In 2022 and 2023 the payments will be approximately $60,000 (€53,000), while in 2024 the amount will be $20,000 (€17,600). As for the adaptation works, a payment will be made this year of approximately $206,000 (€181,000).
Canon has been chosen over Philips as it has obtained a final score of 81.2 points, according to the Regional Executive, which has assessed the economic proposals of the equipment, the works and their subsequent maintenance. “The company has submitted the best offer in terms of quality/price ratio in accordance with article 145 of the Public Sector Contracts Law,” the autonomous government has pointed out.
The new magnetic resonance imaging system will carry out around 5,000 tests a year, which will make it possible to cover the demand of the population in that healthcare area. In this way, patients in the region will not have to travel to other hospitals such as those in Albacete, Alcázar de San Juan, or Tomelloso, the latter being the center where most of these tests have been carried out. Canon Medical Systems offers a wide range of diagnostic imaging equipment including CT, X-ray, ultrasound, and MRI.
From December 2016, Canon Medical became a member of the Canon Group, as it was previously an independent company. Since April, the chairmanship of Canon Medical Systems in Europe has been held by Nobuyuki Hatakeyama, following the resignation of Mark Holmshaw, former CEO for the European market, who now holds the position of consultant.
