Electromedicine service celebrates anniversary

Among the joy of its workers, the commitment to continue helping the most pressing demands of the hospital institutions, and the joy of knowing that they are living up to the expectations, the Electromedical Service celebrates a new anniversary this October 3. On Las Tunas soil, they honor the anniversary with the constant search for technological innovations.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- Sandra Amieba Martínez, communicator of this entity, assured 26 that electromedical doctors are still immersed in finding solutions to the lack of parts that are affecting the health sector in Cuba. Above all, with the conviction that talent and perseverance are required as the best antidote to the shortage.

Amieba Martínez emphasized that to mark the anniversary, a delegation from Tunisia will share its solutions at the national level, to socialize the strategies adopted in the territory to ensure the vitality of medical equipment in these times of shortage of spare parts.

In the current year, several technological innovations allowed the sterilization of surgical material in provincial hospitals, as well as the reuse of life support equipment in intensive therapies. The collective's performance has saved the country considerable sums of money in these times of economic hardship.

Since its creation, the Electromedicine service has had the fundamental purpose of installing, repairing, and maintaining existing medical equipment in hospital institutions.

In 1982, the National Electromedicine Network was created and is currently made up of a National Center, 16 provincial centers, and 21 territorial workshops that are subordinated to the provincial centers of Electromedicine. In all these years, it has worked in a structure similar to that of a company.

This conglomerate has the appropriate infrastructure, workshops, material, and human resources, among which are professionals, technicians, and qualified workers, prepared, trained, and with more than 20 years of experience facing the technological challenge of maintaining a large amount of equipment in operation, without the guarantee of spare parts in many cases.

The possibility of offering specialized technical services with superior quality standards to the National Health System and third parties, including the international market, will guarantee self-financing in the future from the payment of the services rendered.
