Ghana: EASE inaugurates first MRI scanner

EASE Ghana, a subsidiary of EASE Holdings BV, specializing in quality equipment-as-a-service, has unveiled the inaugural MRI scanner in the Eastern Region at St. Dominic Catholic Hospital, Akwatia.

The inauguration event also marked the introduction of Siemens Magnetom Free.Star Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner technology in Ghana. This advanced MRI scanner incorporates Siemens’ latest low-helium technology, providing enhanced energy efficiency without compromising the quality of imaging.

Siemens’ innovative technology, combined with EASE’s distinctive pay-per-scan equipment-as-a-service model, made the machine accessible and affordable for SDCH.

The EASE model enables institutions to circumvent upfront capital costs, allowing the hospital to utilize generated cash flows from scans to cover the service’s expenses.

Speaking at the event, the Vice President, EASE Healthcare and Managing Director, EASE Ghana, Dr. Kanyinsola Oyeyinka, said she was excited about the milestone which will bring significant impact and benefit to patients at St. Dominic Catholic Hospital, the surrounding communities and  the people of the Eastern Region.

She emphasized that EASE is wholly dedicated to delivering the highest quality of equipment and service to customers. This commitment is upheld through a robust network of top-tier Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners, including Siemens, GE, Fuji, and Philips. Collaborating closely with these partners, EASE strives to identify and provide the optimal equipment configuration tailored to the specific needs of their customers.

“This ensures that our customers have the right tools for the job and can provide reliable, high-quality services to their patients. We are also privileged to work with service partners locally to deliver this service. In Ghana, today, we are happy to be able to work with Pacific – who are partners in this installation today.”

She conveyed gratitude to the hospital’s management for the successful collaboration, expressing confidence that the hospital would be an excellent, long-term partner with EASE. She anticipates a continued partnership that will serve Akwatia and the broader Eastern Region effectively in the years to come.
