“Diagnostic imaging is at the heart of our health technology strategy, enabling precision diagnosis and enhanced productivity for our customers,” said Kees Wesdorp, Business Leader Diagnostic Imaging at Philips. “Our focus on innovation and customer centricity is paying off, as exemplified by the success of our high performance Vereos Digital PET/CT system, which simplifies the clinical decision making process through a fast, more confident path to cancer treatment. I am convinced that our new CT/AMI R&D center of excellence and renewed customer services center in Cleveland will be vital for our future success.”

 

To meet the growing demand for technical and clinical training, Philips is also overhauling its existing Cleveland facility to optimize the learning environment it offers to Philips’ global customers and thousands field service engineers.
