With clinical equipment spending accounting for a significant portion of hospital revenue, Aramark has opened a new Healthcare Technology & Innovation Center in Charlotte, N.C., to drive more efficient ways for hospitals to manage clinical equipment assets.
The company, a $14 billion global provider of food, facilities management and uniforms services, is also the largest independent provider of diagnostic and imaging services in North America.
The new Center strengthens Aramark’s position to provide versatile and cost-effective hospital clinical equipment management programs by increasing its research and development expertise, centralizing training and engineering capabilities, and integrating Aramark’s clinical equipment parts sourcing organization into a single center of excellence.
“Innovation is a vital cultural and competitive strength across Aramark and we are focused on fostering an environment of dreaming and doing among our engineers and technicians,” said Victor Crawford, COO of Aramark’s Healthcare Sector. “The Aramark Technology & Innovation Center brings together all of our subject matter expertise – from supply chain to research and development to bolster our capabilities to plan and manage customized programs that optimize our hospital partners’ investment in clinical equipment assets.”
Aramark’s new state-of-the-art 105,000 square foot Technology & Innovation Center employs more than 140 people and features:
“Innovation comes in many shapes and sizes and when clinical equipment in hospitals is not operable, it impacts patient care,” Crawford added. “Aramark’s aim is to extend our mission to enrich and nourish lives by leveraging the resources of this Technology & Innovation Center across our Healthcare Sector to help hospitals improve patient, physician and nurse satisfaction.”
