MedWrench would not be where it is today without each of its founders and their dedication to this medical product support community. This month, MedWrench is highlighting Myron Hartman, former BMET program coordinator and senior instructor at Penn State University.
“Considered one of the pillars of the biomedical engineering technology community, Myron Hartman helped build one of the foremost biomedical training programs at Penn State University. His instruction, curriculum and leadership paved the way for his graduates to succeed in the clinical engineering industry and become future leaders,” according to MedWrench.
Hartman’s personal experience in the healthcare technology industry began in 1978 when he graduated from Penn State University with associate degrees in electrical engineering technology and biomedical equipment technology. He later received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering technology and a master’s degree in health services administration.
“He was active and instrumental in presenting and sharing his knowledge from the very first MD Expo, where he was able to spread his technical expertise and colorful speaking style that attendees came from all over the country to see firsthand,” said MD Publishing President John Krieg.
“When we were launching MedWrench, we needed a partner who could provide expert advice and much needed guidance, and we knew Myron was the perfect fit,” Krieg added. “Myron deployed his students to assist with the building of the original equipment database, researching and uploading over 5,000 items, pictures, dimensions, manuals and other pertinent content. It was this rock-solid foundation that MedWrench is still built upon today.”
In addition to his commitment to the HTM industry, Hartman was the ultimate family man. He and his wife, Amy, loved to travel. He was also an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, especially his beloved Pittsburgh Penguins. He could be seen at many a MD Expo proudly sporting a Sidney Crosby jersey during the playoffs. Myron passed away in 2015 of cancer.
“It is safe to say, MedWrench would not be the success it is today without the incredible contributions Myron made,” concluded Krieg. “His legacy will live on, and we hope everyone knows how vital and inspirational he was to the MedWrench community.”
