Small hospital creativity shines in video contest
If you had a chance to win an expensive but vital piece of equipment for your hospital, how creative would you be? Small hospitals from around the country were asked that question last fall by Siemens, the Malvern, PA-based medical technology company. Its "Win an MRI" contest promised a free MRI machine to the hospital that created the online video receiving the most votes. Hospitals with fewer than 180 beds that do not already have an installed MRI system were invited to upload a two-minute video describing why the facility needed an MRI machine. The contest began in October 2007 and ran through December 31, 2007.
