3 Ways Acceletronics Helps Healthcare Customers Save Money

MLC at Acceletronics

2014 is quickly coming to a close and with the start of a new year, many hospitals are rethinking their budgeting strategies and seeking ways to make their dollars stretch further throughout the course of 2015. The staff at Acceletronics understands that changes within the healthcare industry have put increased pressure on hospitals to cut costs without sacrificing quality of service or equipment.

Here are three ways that we provide our customers with significant savings:

Service: Our rapid response program enables our field service engineers to respond to all calls in 15 minutes or less, around the clock. Because our service engineers typically service fewer machines than many other service providers, our customers experience a more personalized approach and with a faster response time and fewer repeat problems. We service and maintan Varian, Elekta, and Siemens linear accelerators.

Predictable, consistent payment options: Our billing process is tailored to provide the most stability and consistency possible, eliminating the guesswork of monthly maintenance costs. We offer flexible payment plans that can be done monthly, quarterly, or annually in order to meet your company’s specific needs.

Enormous inventory of linear accelerator replacement parts: Our sister company, RadParts, has warehouses located around the world, providing refurbished linear accelerator replacement parts that meet or exceed OEM specifications. Purchasing from RadParts often provides our customers with a savings of 50 percent or more on more than 60,000 parts, including Klystrons, Magnetrons, Thyratrons, Waveguides, solenoids, switches, motors, pumps, and more.

RadParts Offers Radioactive Waste Disposal Services Regulated by the NRC

Did you know that RadParts is among a select few companies licensed by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission to handle Depleted Uranium? Due to its physical shielding properties, DU is sometimes used in linear accelerators in the industrial radiographic imaging sector and in the medical industry. Unlike many other professionals and businesses in radiation oncology and Non-Destructive Testing, RadParts is qualified to safely remove equipment and dispose of DU or other radioactive materials in conformity with regulatory requirements.

Because linear accelerators eventually age beyond their useful lifespan, it is important to have a team on-hand that is knowledgeable about how to properly remove linac equipment that has DU components. DU is most commonly found in older linear accelerator models. Tungsten and lead are alternatives more commonly used in newer models.   Continue reading “RadParts Offers Radioactive Waste Disposal Services Regulated by the NRC”
