Computed Radiography Delivers Modern Medicine to Remote Regions

March 10, 2010 - Thousands of Hondurans will now have access to proper medical diagnoses and treatments due to the joint efforts by iCRco, the Shoulder to Shoulder organization and many other vendors that made this project a reality.
The inauguration of the clinic, Roy and Melanie Sanders Frontera Medical Center, took place February 20th, 2010, with participation of community leaders, international volunteers and guests in Concepcion, Intibuca in Honduras.

The computed radiography (CR) system donated by iCRco was a critical part to the success of the clinic. Private non?profits Shoulder to Shoulder and Hombro a Hombro work in tandem to achieve a single mission: to develop educational and health programs to help poor, rural communities in Honduras, achieve sustainable development and improve the overall health and well being of its residents. Presently, they provide primary health care and community support to over 25,000 people with clinics at four sites and provide meals to more than 2,000 children each day.
“This project was important to iCRco to be a partner in considering we have been growing in Latin America rapidly, and it is imperative to give back to communities that are in need. We believe it is a strong principle in good American business to give back, and Shoulder to Shoulder is a respectable organization that matches well with iCRco values,” stated Mark Valentine, president and COO of iCRco.
iCRco has recently been named the only CR manufacturer to be rated “A” by KLAS in sales, service and technology fields and scored 100 percent for customer satisfaction in software functionality.
