May 16, 2016 — EOS imaging announced the sale of the 10th EOS system to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Network in the United States, to be installed in Los Angeles. This is the 11th EOS system installed globally in the Shriners Network.
In 2011, the first EOS system was acquired by the Shriners Hospital for Children in Montreal, Canada. Shriners Hospitals in the United States started adopting EOS in 2013, and as of today, 10 Shriners sites across the United States have acquired an EOS.
The 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children prioritize patient safety and clinical excellence. This commitment compelled them to equip their network with EOS systems through a national agreement, which was signed in early 2015.
The EOS systems are used as standard of care as the Shriners Hospitals provide medical and rehabilitative services to children with osteo-articular conditions, assisting treatment for nearly all pediatric orthopedic conditions except for traumatic injuries. The hospitals offer a complete range of medical and rehabilitative services including surgeries, physical, occupational and recreation therapies, and orthotics and prosthetics.
