Siemens Donates MRI Scanner to Help Rebuild Phoebe Sumter Medical Center

But, from the devastation of that night came a new hope. Due to the tireless effort of the hospital personnel and the generous support of the town of Americus and beyond, Sumter Regional (as it was then called) has now reopened as Phoebe Sumter Medical Center.

The plight of the hospital first came to the attention of Siemens Healthcare back in the Fall of 2007, after the company announced its "Win an MRI" contest, in which rural and community hospitals without an MRI scanner in their facilities could submit videos pleading their cases on why they should receive a new 1.5 Tesla (T) MAGNETOM ESSENZA MR system from Siemens. Touched by the special circumstances that surrounded Sumter's situation, Siemens announced in January 2008 that it would donate a MAGNETOM ESSENZA, worth approximately $800,000, to the hospital once the facility was rebuilt and could support the new system.

"Siemens is proud to donate a new MRI scanner to Phoebe Sumter, and be a part of the rebuilding of this worthy institution," said Don Fowler, vice president, Magnetic Resonance, Siemens Healthcare. "Phoebe Sumter can now provide much-needed MRI exams to its patients in-house and help ensure that its patients receive optimal medical imaging services and quality patient care."

The MAGNETOM ESSENZA was developed from the ground up to be an affordable, reliable system that can support both a hospital's clinical and financial success. The powerful 1.5T magnet and exclusive Tim technology helps physicians provide comprehensive image services to their community. Designed with small hospitals in mind, the MAGNETOM ESSENZA
