The importance of education as a means of improving patient care is an integral value of Canon Medical Systems. We are committed to providing comprehensive educational programs and supporting educational institutions that share the same value of developing and nurturing clinical excellence. We support diagnostic imaging programs across Canada by providing medical equipment on a non-profit basis. It is with great pride that we continually help institutions to provide high quality education and innovative technologies.
An Aquilion 64 CT scanner was donated to The Michener Institute of Education to allow the students receive advanced training and learn the imaging protocols that are in current clinical use. This investment with The Michener Institute is a testament of our respect for educational institutions as we align our shared visions of healthcare innovation through education. Due to the size of the equipment and limited space in the building, the 4,000-lb Aquilion 64 scanner was craned through a window on the building’s 11th floor. The project also overcame poor weather conditions and involved a variety of infrastructure changes. It took strong project coordination and teamwork and we are extremely pleased to support such a partnership to benefit the future healthcare providers and enhance medical development.
In our annual customer service survey last year, Canon Medical Systems provided respondents with the opportunity to select one of two charities for a donation as a thank you. The charities supported through this initiative were the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Alzheimer Society of Canada. As we continuously strive to serve our customers with the best service and support possible, it is equally important that we make this same effort for the members and future well-being of our community.
Canon Medical Systems Corporation aims to make a positive contribution as a member of society with a respect for life. We give the utmost priority to life and safety, and contribute to solving social issues around the world through business activities.
