Last Day to Bid on Online for DR System to Benefit CHF

December 18, 2008 – Today marks the final day of bidding on the Ysio, a digital radiography (DR) system with wireless detector from Siemens Healthcare, as part of a charity event for Children’s Health Fund (CHF), a national organization dedicated to providing health care for homeless and medically disadvantaged children and advocating on behalf of all children, to be put up for auction.

Hospitals can bid online for the new DR system, thereby offering one lucky hospital and its community a DR solution for virtually all clinical demands. All proceeds from the event benefit CHF.

Similar to other popular, free online auction websites, the auction for the Ysio system enables authorized bidders from U.S. hospitals to submit bids anonymously online, with the highest bid displayed on the auction’s website, www.ysioauction.com, in real-time. When a higher bid is registered, the new amount will then be displayed on the auction’s home page. The final bid at the end of the auction will be the winning bid, once it has been verified and the winning hospital notified.

Auction bidding opened this morning at 12:00 a.m. (ET) and will continue until December 18 at 5:00 p.m. (ET). Registrants bidding in the auction must be authorized purchasing officers for their organizations, and pre-qualified before placing a bid online. The starting bid for the Ysio is $99,999. (The system’s list price is $450,000.)

“We are honored to donate the Ysio system to Children’s Health Fund, and partner with them to better equip their hospitals and doctors with the latest technologies for optimal patient care,” said Claus Grill, vice president, Angiography, Cardiac, and X-ray Systems, Siemens Healthcare.
