Holy Cross Hospital, Affiliated PET/MRI

GES provided electrical engineering services for the addition of a new 100KVA UPS to serve a Positron emission tomography (PET) scanner. The PET scanner is a nuclear medicine imaging tool which produces a three-dimensional image or picture of functional processes in the body. The existing machine is currently fed from an electrical panel located in the adjacent electrical closet. The current feed was intercepted and routed to the new UPS, which then in turn serves the PET scanner. GES staff conducted an analysis of the electrical system and field verified the existing conditions prior to commencement of work. As the project progressed, GES coordinated with the Holy Cross Hospital technical staff and manufacturer for the installation of the new UPS system.
