America Votes to Decide Which Hospital Should Win Siemens' Newest MRI System

December 7, 2007 – The Siemens “Win an MRI" contest has closed and the polls are now open to award a MAGNETOM Essenza MRI system to rural and community hospitals, with fewer than 180 beds who do not have fixed MRI services.
The prize, a MAGNETOM Essenza, was introduced to the market in October 2007 and was developed specifically for the small hospital market, and expected to help physicians deliver improved imaging services in neurology, orthopedics, body imaging, angiography, cardiology, breast imaging, oncology and pediatric imaging.
Over 100 hospitals nationwide posted their most creative, humorous or emotionally appealing video to the campaign Web site. The winner will be announced in January 2008.
Siemens launched this contest on Oct. 22, inviting healthcare facilities that met the contest criteria to display their creativity and dedication to patient care in brief, online videos, with the goal of providing a free MRI system to the most deserving hospital, as decided by the number of online votes.
