Around the Philippines, GE is helping to build sustainable communities and inspiring the innovators of the future.
GE is one of Philippines leading providers of medical technologies and services to frontline clinics and hospitals. We’re helping healthcare professionals shape a new age of patient care in Philipines with the broadest range of medical technologies including CT, MRI, Digital Mammography, PET/CT, Ultrasound and patient monitoring devices.
In 2014, four units of GE Healthcare’s Vscan, a handheld imaging tool that lets physicians carry ultrasound technology in their pockets were used in the week-long medical mission in Tacloban City, one of the hardest hit areas by Typhoon Haiyan. Together with medical experts from National Kidney and Transplant Institute, GE Healthcare brought Vscans to the site to scan patients' internal organs, which allowed quick diagnosis and decisions on patients' need for surgery or medication.
Also in 2014, GE Healthcare supplied 10 x-rays and 10 ultrasound systems to PROSER Health Services Inc., which runs medical and diagnostic clinics across the country, on behalf of top private Philippine hospital, The Medical City.
