iCRco Donates Three X-ray Units to Philippines Typhoon Disaster Relief Effort

iCRco, a global leader in medical-imaging products, announced that it has partnered with the Filipino American Television Network (FILAM TV) in an effort to help those impacted by the devastating Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. iCRco has donated three VertX single-plate CR units with onboard touchscreen acquisition workstations and mobile carts to restore diagnostic imaging capability for residents of the area devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.

VertX is specialized durable CR designed to meet rigorous demands and tests of the U.S. Military. They are equipped to deliver reliable x-ray image quality no matter what conditions they are under. iCRco’s unique mobile cart configuration will be able to enter areas that are inaccessible to other, larger medical imaging products. Physicians and practitioners in the Philippines will be able to use the VertX units, XC imaging software, mobile carts and CR plates to properly diagnose and treat injuries of those impacted by the typhoon. iCRco’s partner Elan Vita Diagnostic Solutions will be handling the installation and staff training and technical support for these products.

“We were inspired to work with the Filipino American Television Network [FILAM TV] upon learning of their outreach efforts, to support the devastation in the Philippines.” said Doug Vail, marketing communications manager for iCRco Inc. “It was clear that FILAM TV was really trying to make a difference and we felt their dedication and commitment to support the Filipino community, during this difficult time, was aligned with our goals to help.” Stephen Neushul, president and CEO for iCRco Inc., has always made generous contributions towards global support efforts that aid countries in need. Vail added, “As a medical imaging manufacturer, we feel it is our duty to provide the best healthcare to people wherever they may be and this support effort was no exception.”

FILAM TV’s mission is to work to deliver a socially responsible message of honesty, hope and pride for the Filipino culture and community. FILAM TV has been active in providing donations for Philippine disaster relief efforts. The partnership between iCRco and FILAM TV is a direct reflection of both companies’ desire to help those in need on a global scale.

Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest typhoons to ever make landfall. It devastated the central Philippines by killing over 6,000 people, leaving nearly 1,800 missing, 1.9 million homeless, and more than 6,000,000 displaced.
