MedPro Imaging, a premium provider of new and refurbished ultrasound solutions, recently announced the expansion of its operations with the opening of its dedicated state-of-the-art ultrasound transducer repair facility in Longmont, Colo. The 5,000-square-foot facility features proprietary repair technology not previously available in the U.S. market, offering high quality computer-based transducer repair services designed to counter a growing emphasis in the industry on probe exchange programs.
In addition to providing high quality transducer repair services at the Company’s existing Waukesha repair facility, the Longmont facility will also manufacturer MPI ProbeLab(TM), turn-key ultrasound transducer repair packages featuring state-of-the-art computer-based technology designed to enable major hospitals and networks to perform probe repairs in-house. The scalable ProbeLab packages will include state-of-the-art computer-based probe repair devices and processes for fast, consistent repairs.
“MedPro entered the transducer repair category with a repair-first business model and selected Longmont, Colorado, for this state-of-the-art repair facility based on the availability of extremely skilled personnel to support the goal of providing consistent repair services designed to help customers reduce their ultrasound lifecycle costs by keeping their own probes in service. From solder technicians to engineers and other high tech expertise, Longmont has a great deal of people with the specific skill sets for which we were looking for,” said Charles Jahnke, president and CEO of MedPro Imaging. “As we expand our service offerings and transducer repair operations, we are pleased to have two ultrasound industry veterans join to help MedPro offer the best ultrasound system and service solutions in the industry.”
