Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc has announced an exclusive 5-year agreement with OhioHealth, a not-for-profit health care organization that provides health care to 46 Ohio counties. Under the terms of the contract, four award-winning OhioHealth hospitals—Grant Medical Center, Riverside Methodist Hospital, Doctors Hospital, and Grady Memorial Hospital—and six diagnostic imaging centers will acquire more than 20 Aquilion™ computed tomography (CT) scanners.

OhioHealth hospitals previously utilized technology from several different vendors, but now require a system that delivers consistency across OhioHealth’s network of hospitals and imaging centers.

“This innovative agreement benefits our community and our patients by having state-of-the-art imaging closer to their neighborhood,” said David P. Blom, president and CEO of OhioHealth. “We’re very excited to be entering into this relationship with Toshiba. They have crafted a compelling value proposition that aligns with our cost leadership strategy. We feel confident this agreement will help allow our hospitals and imaging centers to better serve our growing communities.”
