Major Portuguese hospital selects Sectra to provide PACS

7 May 2009

Hospital de São João, one of Portugal’s largest hospitals, has selected Swedish company Sectra to provide picture archiving and communications (PACS) products and services.

Throughout the multi-year agreement, Sectra will supply PACS solutions and direct service and support to Hospital de São João. With this order, Sectra is the main contractor in digital radiology solutions for all five public hospitals in Porto.

Hospital de São João is located in Porto, the second-largest city in Portugal. In total, the hospital performs approximately 300,000 examinations annually, a figure that is projected to grow to 400,000 over the next few years with the integration of other clinical departments such as gastro-enterology, cardiology and other image-producing departments.

“Sectra has extensive experience in delivering and servicing mission-critical IT systems,” says Afonso Pedrosa, IT Manager at Hospital de São João. “It is obvious that, over the years, Sectra has developed a deep understanding of radiology operations and will be able to meet our future needs, ensuring high-quality support for our operations.”

“Being the main contractor for all public hospitals in Porto demonstrates the true strength of Sectra’s competitive position and our commitment to fulfilling our customers’ needs, and highlights the skill and dedication of our highly professional team,” says Carlos Cardoso, President of Sectra Iberia.
