January 22, 2015 — Siemens Financial Services (SFS) provided a financing package to Pueblo Radiology to support their acquisition of a Siemens Somatom Perspective 64 slice computed tomography (CT) scanner. This latest financing solution continues a long-standing relationship between Pueblo Radiology and SFS’s Commercial Finance unit, which has provided more than $9 million in equipment and construction financing to the Santa Barbara-based medical imaging specialist since 2001. Past equipment financed has included the Siemens Magnetom Symphony MR scanner, the Siemens Magnetom Verio 3T MRI system, and the Siemens Sentinelle Breast MRI coil system.

According to new SFS research conducted amongst the top 40 global medical equipment manufacturers, 70 percent of respondents saw an increasing customer demand for healthcare equipment financing over the past two years. Intensified competition between healthcare providers, budgetary constraints and the post-recessionary lending environment has contributed to the increased need for private sector financing options.
