Up Close: Biomedical Technology

Biomedical Technology touches almost all aspects of patient care. This relatively small team is responsible for the maintenance and repairs of approximately 18,000 devices in our hospitals, ensuring each of them is operating at the exact specifications required.

The team’s priority is patient safety, and although their focus is the equipment they work with, it’s the inter-professional approach to finding solutions that brings them so much success. Along with providing our patients with the highest quality technology and equipment, they help make health care in our community sustainable.
