MALVERN, Pa., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Drum roll, please... The winner of the Siemens "Win an MRI" contest is Lockport Memorial Hospital in Lockport, N.Y.

Lockport Memorial Hospital won the MRI -- worth approximately $800,000 -- through a first-of-its-kind online video competition hosted on http://www.WinAnMRI.com.
