Z-Care: 24/7 service for clinical users
Today, mobile C-arms build the center-piece of many ORs throughout America, and it is crucial to keep hard and software up-to-date and eventual down-time to a minimum. The Z-Care program has been launched to ensure quick and easy access to technical and clinical application support whenever required.
A 24h toll-free hotline and a team of 72 highly qualified service engineers ensure immediate remote assistance and the shipment of requested parts on the same day. 98% of the parts are delivered within 24h to the customer’s site. Tailored service packages covering the entire lifespan of the C-arms – ranging from preventive maintenance and after warranty parts coverage to service training for in-house engineers – ensure that every clinical user receives the individual support they need to offer patients reliable and highly qualitative care.
Ziehm Imaging has stood for mobile X-ray-based imaging for 40 years. Since the company was founded in 1972, more than 10,000 C-arms have been installed in hospitals and medical facilities around the globe.
