Effective January 1, GE Healthcare will provide biomedical engineering services for the University of Miami UHealth System. The staffs of Facilities Administration, Supply Chain, GE and Aramark have worked diligently to ensure a smooth, seamless transition from Aramark to GE Healthcare.
For biomedical equipment support, users should continue to dial the same number currently in use, 305-243-5999, and select Option No. 2. Department support personnel will answer calls during regular working hours—8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday—and route the service request to the appropriate GE biomedical technician. Calls that come in after hours and on weekends will be routed to the “on call” GE biomedical technician.
GE will be performing a complete inventory of the existing biomedical (clinical) and imaging equipment for the UHealth System currently supported by Aramark from January 5 through January 16. During this time, inventory control number stickers will be applied to equipment, and inventory personnel will collect other data such as serial numbers, locations, installation date, make/model, system configuration, warranty end dates, and cost centers.
The inventory will begin at Sylvester/UMHC and BPEI/ABLEH and continue to all hospital-based and non-hospital based clinics. Coordination will take place with the administrators for each facility.
GE is excited about partnering with UHealth in its efforts to perform a complete and accurate inventory. We ask for your assistance and cooperation with the inventory team during this inventory process.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jose L Ramirez, executive director of Hospital Facilities and Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions for the GE Healthcare team, contact Jordan Robertson at 786-510-3591.
