Medisend College, through the General Richard B Myers Veterans Program, has been training US military veterans for careers as professional biomedical technicians since 2013.
Siemens Healthineers has donated new X-ray, ultrasound and clinical laboratory equipment, valued at more than $1,000,000, to Medisend College of Biomedical Engineering Technology to help advance the education and training of US military veterans in the General Richard B Myers Veterans Program. The equipment donated by Siemens Healthineers will be housed in the new Touchstone Imaging Laboratories at Medisend College where students will benefit from the latest imaging technologies.
“Siemens Healthineers enables healthcare providers by empowering them on their journey towards expanding precision medicine. We are proud to partner with General Myers and Medisend College to help train our veterans for professional careers in the healthcare industry as they endeavor to return to civilian life,” said Ron Pellegrini, VP of Siemens Healthineers.
Medisend College has been training veterans and successfully placing them in positions with major healthcare organizations since 2013. The Siemens Healthineers’ relationship with Medisend has played a major role in the college becoming a leading provider of biomedical engineering technology training in the US, playing key advisory roles, offering professional workshops, hiring graduates and donating essential training equipment.
“This new equipment donated by our friends at Siemens Healthineers will be instrumental in providing students with the opportunity to train on the latest imaging technology available. We are grateful to Ron and his team for their consistent support of our mission to provide good jobs and secure financial futures for our veterans,” said General Richard B. Myers, 15th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, current president of Kansas State University, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Medisend College.
