June 2012—This article is the second in a series of vendor spotlights, designed to keep our members aware of AHRA’s partnerships and show our appreciation for all that our vendor partners do.
Hitachi Medical Systems America, Inc. and AHRA have formed a tremendous partnership over the past few years. Hitachi has played a significant role in advancing the mission of the AHRA Education Foundation with their financial support of many initiatives. For the past four years, Hitachi has served as a President’s Circle Partner of the Education Foundation committing $130,000 over that span to support many of the Foundation’s vital initiatives.
Hitachi regularly supports AHRA members by providing funding for scholarships for the AHRA Annual Conference and provides our members with world-class education through symposia at the Annual Conference.
“AHRA is very thankful or Hitachi Medical Systems’ support of our educational initiatives,” says Ernie Cerdena, AHRA Education Foundation Chair. “Their funding allows the EF to offer valuable educational opportunities to our members. Thank you Hitachi for everything you do!”
“We are proud to be a contributor to the AHRA Education Foundation as it provides a great value to a very integral part of the medical community,” says Sheldon Schaffer, Vice President and General Manager, Magnetic Resonance at Hitachi. “As a company we appreciate the opportunity to get closer to the radiology administrators so that we can understand their challenges and better serve this community”
Please join AHRA in thanking Sheldon Schaffer and Raymond Wtulich for their continued leadership and support of AHRA and the AHRA Education Foundation. AHRA looks forward to further expanding our relationship with Hitachi as we enter a new chapter in imaging management!
