Conquest Imaging has announced the acquisition of Acoustic Imaging Solutions (AIS), an Indiana-based company providing ultrasound solutions to the health care industry.
“The purchase of Acoustic Imaging Solutions will enhance the portable system repair capabilities Conquest provides to health care facilities nationwide. By purchasing AIS, Conquest Imaging will be offering their customers depot repair for their SonoSite systems beginning January 2018,” according to a news release. “Furthermore, immediate qualified field service engineering support is acquired to help provide ultrasound maintenance and repair to health care facilities in the Midwestern United States.”
“This acquisition complements our portable ultrasound offering by allowing us to seamlessly provide direct portable depot repair for SonoSite systems that are no longer supported by the manufacturer,” explains Conquest Imaging President and Co-Founder Mark Conrad. “With this ability, hospitals and imaging centers have a choice to extend the life of their SonoSites allowing them to service their patients with the same system, which lowers their expenses and total cost of ownership,”
In addition to Conquest Imaging’s GE and Philips portable depot repair capabilities, in January, they are adding the SonoSite 180/180 Plus, SonoSite Titan, SonoSite, MicroMaxx, SonoSite M-Turbo, SonoSite SII and Sonosite S Series.
