Philips continues to enlarge its footprint in the healthcare system of Castilla y León. The Dutch technology giant has been awarded a contract with the administration presided over by Alfonso Fernando Fernández Mañueco to set up a new hemodynamics room in Léon for one million euros, according to a document from the Regional Health Management and the Regional Executive’s Department of Health. The current angiograph for interventional hemodynamics is also due to be removed.
The multinational will install a hemodynamics room in the cardiology department of the Complejo Asistencial Universitario de León. This project is financed by the European Union through the Recovery and Resilience Mechanism-NextGeneration EU.
The contract in question covers the commissioning of an Azurion Cardiac Suite angiograph, costing $1.09 million (€957,648), and a Philips Hemo System polygraph, at a cost of $8,412 (€7,349). The execution period is sixty days.

Philips is awarded a contract, whose execution period is sixty days
“The justification for the need to acquire a hemodynamics room is based on the renewal of existing obsolescent technology and the current one is nearing the end of its useful life,” according to the Government of Castilla y León.
The latest version of Azurion brings major benefits to interventional cardiology, such as the ability to control specialized cardiac diagnostic and therapy tools on a table-side touchscreen to help make quick, informed decisions without breaking sterility. With the polygraph, the company can bring advanced hemodynamic measurements to the interventional laboratory to support clinical decision-making.
Recently, in Castilla y Léon, Philips was awarded a 419,000 euro contract to supply two X-ray rooms for the Hospital Universitario Rio Hortega in Valladolid. The contract covers two monitored digital radiography rooms with ceiling suspension, three flat detectors, and automatic telemetry. In addition to the works and maintenance, the contract also includes training for the center’s radiodiagnosis service professionals.
