SWISSRAY AWARDED US GOVERNMENT CONTRACT
East Brunswick, N.J., March 10, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Swissray International, Inc. announced
that they have been awarded a new contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs to sell their complete
line of digital radiography systems. This contract allows any branch of the Department of Defense, VA
Medical Centers or Government Agencies to purchase directly from Swissray. With exercisable option
years the contract could be effective until December, 2016.
Swissray has a long and successful track record of selling directly to the US Government. Prior to being
awarded this contract Swissray held a contract with the Defense Supply Center of Philadelphia. Swissray
has installed their film-less direct digital radiography systems into many Veterans Administration Hospitals
and Department of Defense Base Hospitals over the past nine years.
John Monahan, Sr. Vice President of Strategic Accounts for Swissray states “We are very proud to have
been awarded this contract. The Contracting Officers within the Department of Veterans Affairs do an
extremely thorough job in evaluating the quality of the products offered and negotiating the best possible
price. Their product evaluation process is quality driven and quality is where Swissray DR Systems excel.
More than ever before health care providers are searching for better utilization of scarce resources.
Swissray’s DR systems enable the provider to significantly decrease cost and increase staff efficiency and
job satisfaction, while improving the delivery of patient care without expanding space. With our unique
APS™ - Automated Positioning System Swissray’s DR solutions offer the fastest patient throughput in the
industry at the lowest radiation dose”
Swissray has received from Frost & Sullivan the “Best Product Value” award and most recently the “Single
Detector Digital Radiography Product Innovation of the Year” award for their latest digital radiography
system. This technology provides the highest quality medical radiographic images in seconds at a
significantly lower cost with less radiation dose than conventional or computed radiography because,
among other factors, film, imaging plates, cassettes and chemical processing are not required. Swissray
offers high quality, affordable solutions for direct digital radiography. Swissray currently provides a full
range of DR systems for university hospitals, regional and community hospitals, emergency departments,
imaging centers and orthopedic clinics. All of Swissray’s DR systems include fully automated, remote
controlled system positioning. Swissray offers customers the choice between floor mounted C-arm or
ceiling mounted DR systems with flat panel or silicon solid state detectors.
