Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) October 04, 2016
Alpha Source, the Milwaukee-based provider of innovative healthcare technology management solutions, announces its complete transition as the nationwide services and exclusive parts provider for GE Healthcare’s bone mineral densitometry (BMD) products in the United States. The installation, warranty and post-warranty servicing of GE Healthcare’s BMD equipment complements the ultrasound imaging service Alpha Source has been providing on selected GE Healthcare ultrasound products since 2014. The Alpha Source national network of GE-trained and certified field service engineers are focused on the bone densitometry modality and are supplemented with depot repair operations.
“GE Healthcare trusted Alpha Source to service their bone densitometry equipment because Alpha Source is a BMD service provider with the unique combination of OEM quality and the value of a nationally scaled independent service organization,” said Rick Lytle, Chief Executive Officer at Alpha Source.
As the exclusive distributor of GE Healthcare BMD parts, Alpha Source provides OEM parts to keep bone densitometry equipment running at factory levels.
“Our just-in-time (JIT) capability results in next-day service on most parts shipments, even hard-to-find parts. This enables Alpha Source to provide faster response to maximize bone densitometry equipment uptime,” adds Lytle.
Alpha Source will continue its growth as an innovative, quality-focused service provider to healthcare organizations by offering solutions that maximize medical equipment productivity, reduce equipment cost of ownership, mitigate risks, and support improved patient care.
“GE worked very closely with Alpha Source over the past six months to ensure a seamless transition of services to our BMD customers. Alpha Source is equipped with the training, documentation, tools and parts to deliver great service,” said Rob Reilly, Vice President & General Manager, US & Canada Service, GE Healthcare. GE Healthcare will continue to design and manufacture BMD equipment and will maintain service in geographies outside the United States.
