Siemens has signed a managed equipment service (MES) contract covering the procurement, installation and maintenance of diagnostic and therapeutic devices over the next 15 years, as well as provision of rotational systems replacement. The contract comprises a capital investment of A$100 million (€78 million) and covers some 6,000 devices ranging from computed-tomography scanners to anaesthesia systems. This is the largest contract so far for Siemens Healthcare in Australia.

The new Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth, at a total volume of A$2 billion, is one of the biggest new construction projects in Australian healthcare. The Western Australian health ministry awarded the international service provider Serco a major contract covering management of all of the entire building. Serco in turn, through the MES contract, assigned Siemens the management of supplying virtually all of the hospital’s medical technology. This comprehensive service agreement encompasses not only initial procurement of the medical devices, but also maintenance, device replacement and disposal, and user training.
