Siemens Healthineers and Tellica Imaging LLC, an Intermountain Healthcare company, today announced the opening of Tellica’s three outpatient imaging centers in Utah—the result of a new 10-year Value Partnership where Siemens Healthineers provides medical imaging equipment and related services to Tellica for these and future outpatient imaging centers.
The new Tellica imaging centers are located in Ogden, Orem, and West Valley/Taylorsville, Utah, which will immediately benefit patients near those market areas. National research shows outpatient imaging centers typically offer patients more accessible and affordable options for imaging services.1
Through this partnership, Siemens Healthineers and Tellica Imaging have deployed state-of-the-art equipment from Siemens Healthineers at each of the three Tellica outpatient imaging centers.
“We‘re excited to announce this innovative, long-term relationship with Siemens Healthineers to equip and support Tellica Imaging in its launch of these three Utah outpatient imaging centers and in the new centers we plan to open over the coming decade,” said Nannette Berensen, PharmD, MBA, MHA, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Clinical Shared Services at Intermountain Healthcare. “This partnership allows us to offer exceptional clinical care outside of the hospital and in an outpatient setting via the latest medical technology, providing our patients with a potentially faster, more affordable, and more easily accessible option for care.”
“Siemens Healthineers is pleased to provide Intermountain Healthcare with the medical imaging technology and related software and services necessary to launch and expand its new Tellica Imaging outpatient imaging centers, with the goal of enhancing the quality of healthcare available to patients in the state of Utah and beyond,” said David Pacitti, President and Head of the Americas, Siemens Healthineers. “This long-term Value Partnership with Tellica represents the collective power of our two organizations coming together and our shared vision of improving patient care.”
