Imaging equipment procurement company Future Medical organised the removal of a 2007 GE Healthcare Discovery STE 64 PETCT from St James’s Hospital, Dublin. The 5,500kg system was loaded onto wooden pallets for transport to the loading area. The equipment was moved on rubber wheels for floor protection, with the added use of boards and steel plates.
Hospital procurement manager Nicolas Reuland said: “All went as planned. The team was extremely professional and knowledgeable. They left the room in an impeccable state and took great care not to leave any marks in the flooring along the transit route. They are a credit to Future Medical.”
